Ratings for Queensway Carleton Hospital
I personally have had treatment with good results, but friends and relatives of mine have not been so fortunate. In each of three cases I was the advocate for the patient needing emergency treatment. In one case a bladder ruptured because my stepfather was left uncatheterised in the ER when it was known to the attending physician and staff that ultrasound showed a full bladder, and father was emphasizing the pain and pressure.
Most recently a friends broken wrist was casted but not set properly. We were told that the break was a clean one, but were later told that it was not a clean break. The result is a displace wrist which I firmly believe was an hospital /physician error.
I agree with one of the other reviewers that the socialization and apparent indifference at the inside desk is true. My mother arrived at the ER at 2pm with a broken arm and was kept waiting till 11pm at which time the arm was set. She was not offered any pain medication, nor any attention for relief of her physical or mental discomfort, meanwhile we sat invisible to the staff .
As a patient it is politically difficult to complain about hospital service for fear of a reprisal of some form, but as a past donor, it feels compelling to vent ones displeasure about the shortcomings of actual treatment scenarios. It is my hope that these reviews serve some measure of information to the administrators that meaningful oversight is required in the areas described.

My dad had a stroke on the weekend so my family took him to the queensway Carleton hospital. After waiting all morning for his blood tests results, they cleared my dad to go back home when he was still incapable of walking, dizzy and nowhere near better. My dad asked one of the nurses if there was anything he could take to make him feel better and he said, "try a gravol": s. So we took my dad back home for an hour and of course his symptoms started getting worse. So we rushed him to the civic hospital and they admitted him right away. After my many experiences at the QCH, it really seems as though they'd rather process as many people as possible than treat as many as possible.

Have been in error before. Some excellent error doctors. Dr Mcgee is one of the most thorough doctors I have ever seen. Worth the wait because you know you will leave there well looked after. It's hard to judge how sick a patisn't is when you are in waiting room that's why you have professional triage staff looking after that what you think is minor and they shouldn't be there could actually be very serious.

My mom was in emergency few days ago due to dehydration and fever. Two of the nurses were very rough on my mom when they were trying to find her vein to put IV and collect some blood for the lab. They pocked my poor mom's hands in several areas. My mom was kind of unconscious and very weak that night that couldn't even open her eyes. But I could see she was in pain because those two nurses were pulling her arm very hard. I told them gently "you are pulling her arm" and one of them with rude voice responded :" we are doing our job".
No doubt that they were doing their job but they were doing it in rough way and asked me can you go wait outside. That was awful experience my mom and I had.

Emergency room is filthy and the nurses snap at you for asking simple questions.

My family had an excellent experience at the Queensway Carleton Hospital birthing unit. The obstetricians, pediatricians and nursing staff were top notch. We felt well supported at all times.

The experience I had at the ER was sub standard in terms of medical care. The staff physicians seem to spend more time socializing and even laughing audibly at the nursing station, than caring for patients and being conscious of people suffering.
The chief of the ER needs to review policies and improve the level of care.
