The MOST TERRIFYING 6 months of my life was spent watching the doctors AND nurses slowly torture and neglect my father to his death... I WOULD NEVER TRUST ANYONE IN THAT HOSPITAL to be competent to follow full instructions on a patient’s chart or cardx... I continually had to intervene from RN’s and LPN’s using the wrong feed port... and lab techs leaving the tourniquet on his surgical arm “accidentally” for over 5 hours... forgetting to discontinue blood thinners before a minor surgery, complicated by perforating the stomach artery- causing a massive hemorrhage requiring emergency surgery to resuscitate him... on and on... and on... horribly terrifying- and their treatment of me as the family and patient advocate was intentionally vindictive- literally cheering “the daughter’s not here” (in front of me) when they’d see his room was empty.
It’s simple. The doctors at this institution saved my life! It took more than a year but they never gave up on me. It took several disciplines, working together, to do it. It was difficult but I could not have got better care...anywhere! When I see people endlessly complaining about wait times, grumpy professional staff and quality of care I’m astounded! I never had to wait for a doctor, nurse, MRI, surgical suite or any other required treatment. If it was necessary they did it with skill, care and compassion. I have one question for people who want to (nit) pick-apart their their treatment; Exactly how could it have been any better?
We received excellent care at the stollery. Nurses and doctors were so kind and helpful. One complaint- when you are to lay in the bed and you always look up at the ceiling - you see quite a few dust bunny’s hanging around. It doesn’t feel very clean. But overall we were well taken care of.
The hospital staff is very approachable and caring. My grandson was in the NICU at the U of A and was cared for by many helpful staff being doctors and nurses. The entire hospital appeared to be clean, services are accessible and staff from other areas are approachable.
My husband had surgery and he has no immune system. They housed him with someone with possible Cdiff!! Some nursing staff were not washing hands inbetween patients. Horrible. Then they moved my husband to a different room and put him on a gurney for 3 days of his 5 day stay!! No bed. Disgraceful. This is not a center of excellence.
I’ve always had a great experience with everyone other than the male triage with glasses. Every time I have seen him due to mental illness he has said very inappropriate things like: “you realize that you would have died slowly and painfully if you hadn’t come?” And “oh, so this isn’t your first time to the rodeo?” (These we’re both said when I came in for a suicide attempt) (this triage is notorious for saying very rude and inappropriate things) and the nurses during this time were VERY inappropriate as well. I was sharing a room with another girl who had attempted suicide. As per code, we must have our door open at all times. We overheard the nurses say: “there are four teenagers in for suicide attempts, there must be something in the water” I’d like to say this: these inappropriate comments have and will continue to stay with me for a very long time. I acknowledge the fact that some people deal with these things differently, and may need to act tough to get through, but it is wildly inappropriate and hurtful to hear these things.
