Went to Emergency dept. Nurse at front was great. Other nurse (?) closed the door to the triage room and barked at 2 patients who came forward asking questions about wait time and how many people were before them. We all understand that these things could change - she could have answered the questions with qualifiers at least providing some understanding that patients and their families are concerned. Closing (and locking?) the door to the triage office was unacceptable! Nurses once you got inside were pleasant - although shift changed and then the new nurses didn't even identify themselves. The bigger problem was the doctor who didn't know my disease or medications. WOW! Perhaps they try a google search. The doctor was also manipulative and creepy. OHIP needs to stop paying the doctor's salary. Not a good value for tax payer's money.

Dirty floor blood stains on sheets. Nurses don't seem to care when hitting a call Bell. After waiting 45 minutes a nurse finally came. My iv was misplaced and sticking out of my arm horrible emergency department. Nurses that don't seem to care. Nursing station was right in front of me and they seem to be having a good time ignoring the call Bell. The ambulance service was good. So surprised this Hospital gets a failing grade. In fact I believe this Hospital needs to be looked into especially the emergency department their practices don't seem to be safe.

I came across your post and I must say I too have had a horrible experience with a neurologist by the name of dr. Jennifer Jain. You mentioned your foreseeing with a possible lawsuit I have to say you can include the hospital under that umbrella as well if they fell below the standard of care. This neurologist I believe is moving her practice not sure but you may want to look into this to let your attorney know I think you mentioned in your last post she can't run from your attorney. My experience with the hospital was pleasant however my experience with this particular doctor was not you're right about malpractice and misdiagnosed me. Other than that parking is expensive hospital food is undesirable nurses have somewhat a good attitude. Hey I may join you in regards to your lawsuit against the hospital and dr. Jennifer Jain. From Sunnybrook Hospital Miss diagnosing my mother. If the premier of Ontario is reading this post please investigate the Mother's Day ology department at Sunnybrook Hospital a lot of Miss diagnosing is going on.

Hospital rooms were very dirty I have photos I especially want to see if you have a loved one being seen by a neurologist called Jennifer Jain. Be extra careful with this neurologist get a second opinion we are in the process of filing a lawsuit against her. The College of physician is going to be sued as well as this doctor please use extra care when seeing this neurologist. She should have her license taken away for malpractice. She may be able to run but she's not going to hide for my attorney.

My mother had a cochlear implant at this hospital by Dr. Chen. Her surgery went great and her after care was amazing!!! The nurses that took care of her were great. Our experience was very well and so far after care had been great!

We took my mother-in-law to emerg. August 30. By the early morning of Aug. 31 she was admitted. While we were there for a very long time, we were treated with good care and compassion. In fact, a nurse named Mohammed realized she'd been in a wheel chair far too long and managed to grab a stretcher for her so she could lie down finally. She was in the main building until a formal diagnosis was confirmed and then she was moved to Palliative Care. The whole team, Dr. D. Selby, Lori her main nurse and the other nurses we absolutely wonderful to deal with. Their compassion was welcomed and they were wonderful with all of us. Outstanding palliative care.

This was our experience from start to finish, which would be difficult for a healthy person, nevermind someone with a serious chronic ilness: 1) dangerous traffic situation outside of the hospital 2) 3 minute visit with the doctor without questions answered and without respect and with no follow up plan. I left the floor not knowing what had happened. I would recommend having family or a friend by your side at all times and to tape any appointments and to know your medical history inside and out 3) difficulty obtaining my medical records (30 dollar fee which is cash only and must be exact amount with no receipt given) 4) difficult to operate parking machine and outrageously priced parking. What we have is a doctor-centred system and change is urgently needed. Where is all the money going?

All of the nurses and hospital staff I associated with today were unbelievably heartless people with no empathy for the fact that my wife was undergoing surgery for cancer today. They accidentally put her name on the "surgery" electronic board an hour after she went to recovery, making me think she was sent back under the knife for an emergency. When I questioned this and was told it was a mistake the nurses looked at me like I was an idiot for being so concerned. I waited hours (over 5) with no updates or information on my wife, and any time I asked a worker for an update I was given snarky frustrated responses. I would not ever recommend this hospital to anyone and I will not return to this hospital for any reason. I will never understand why you would work in a hospital if you don't have any care of empathy for other people. I'm truly sickened after my experience today.

I went in to this hospital with 39.00 fever and was told in emergency that it was probably pneumonia, until a doctor asked me where I was from and I told him where I was from and after diagnosing me with pneumonia he decided since I was from this country then I should be considered for TB testing, but I said I have'n't been there for years, they still said it could be latent in my body! I saw how silly and infantile this yellow team was headed by David Jurulunk who was media appearances on TV. They confined me for seven days and I was depressed. Finally they lifted the confinement and said I had no TB!!! Which I knew very well, because to Canada 40 years ago I was checked head to toe! This team never appologized for their grave mistakes. They upset all my family and had constant chest pains. This place is run by students that are misinformed and whether they know it or not they discriminated against my background.

I was referred to the Odette Cancer Centre by MountShe Sinai for Radiation and Dr. Ewa Szumacher. While Dr. Szumacher told me my final diagnosis and told me she was the right Oncologist for me. I found this Oncologist was very bad because during 4 weeks of radiation I saw her only before the radiation started and ONCE during my treatment. Every time the desk told me to see her, she was too busy evaluating new patients. When I complained, she told me to see her nurse assistant. The nurse diagnosed me puss come out at the surgery and sent me away. When I saw my family doctor it turned out to be the cream I used for lubrication. I also requested a female radiation team and got a team of 3 Pakistani and 1 Chinese males. I refused. I was transferred to an all female radiation team. This has to be the worst Oncologist at Sunnybrook. . The next time I saw her was 8 weeks after the treatment, i.e. a total of 3 times during and after Radiation.
My follow up after one year with a mammogram was even worse. I had to attend the Cancer Clinic on the 6th Floor M block, 5 times. I was ordered to have an MRI. Then I was told I needed 5 Biopsies. Dr. Szumacher then told me she was a Radiologist also and had the Committee evaluate the request. When I told her I would only consent when I have seen a registered radiologist. I then saw Dr. Belinda Curpen. She explained that 2 biopsies had to be done at the surgery site because of more cancer and 3 on the right breast at the same locations as done at Mt. Sinai before surgery. When I told I had radiation and that it was impossible to see any cancer for 24 months. She yelled at me: SHUT UP, I HAVE'NT GOT ALL DAY TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTSIONS!!!" IF YOU DO NOT CONSENT TO THESE BIOPSIES, DON'T BOTHER TO COME BACK TO SUNNYBROOK" Dr. Belinda Curpen has to be the rudest doctor I have ever met. All these test and biopsies created so much fear and anxiety for me I was a total wreck. I told Dr. Szumacher I am NOT having 5 biopsies and walked out.
|The cancer clinic on the 6th floor, M block, is always empty now.
I had spoken to my family doctor about all these tests and she agreed with me to return to Mt. Sinai. My mammogram was repeated at Mt. Sinai. Every thing was o.k. - I never needed any biopsies at all.
People who read the above re my radiation treatment need to make up their own mind as the want to deal with these rude doctors.
