Only those people who have been afflicted with cancer are able to fully appreciate how "blessed" we are in Alberta to have such magnificent doctors, nurses and health care professionals who attend to our needs. Their devotion I have received in their care has been truly uplifting and I applaud them for their dedication. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
The doctor I have has no respect for cancer patients. He will not authorious blue cross coverage. So patient has to pay out off pocket. Some chemo nurses go for the smallest vein for treatment ,so the patient gets a busted vein and the head nurses covers it up..Some doctors want u to pay for a t.c scan out of pocket.tell u to go too insight in medulark shopping centre. (Private).But all scans are covered by Alberta health care. I'm opinion .what a scam!!!!!! Know wander people get stressed and depressed and lose hope that they will never get better. Calgary is just to far away to go for treatment. .
Given the rampant increase in cancer, the services I received during my treatment was excellent. While the nurses, doctors, support staff and volunteers were very busy, they were all very professional. Its is difficult treating terminally ill patients on an on-going basis. That would be very challenging, so I never expected to be treated the same as the terminally ill. It was very humbling to be sitting beside a patient that may only have a couple of years. I am very grateful that I had Dr. X Zhu and Dr. Chay to help me through my treatment. Thank-you
Horrible communication between memebers of staff, patient education by doctors and nurses negliable and generic. There is huge turnover due to poor management, so best oncologists do not want to stay. It is not the amount of money AHS is spending, it is what they are spending it on. This is not a world class facility as mentioned below. It is dysfunctional and cancer patients are undergoing unnecessary stress. This could be so much better if staff and management had the ability to acknowledge problems versus just doing what has not and will not work.
Tom Baker gets more funding than the Cross does--yet the Cross still manages to deliver great care mostly due to the front liners who work/volunteer there. Management (AHS) is hit and miss and the place took a dive down when the Alberta Cancer Board was no longer running the place.
