Ratings for Kelowna General Hospital
I understand that Canada has the third worst healthcare in the developed world.. But this has to be one of the worst hospitals in canada. I swear only one doctor is allowed to work at a time in this place. They just don't care here. I could be a Canadian doctor easily just like this. "I'm not sure what's actually wrong, but take this pill it will either make you better or worse. Now I have to go stand over there and talk to the other doctors for an hour about my weekend. Then it's my lunch break. When i get back on shift I will complain on how I don't get paid enough. Hey we should go on strike for a higher wage. I need more money for doing basically nothing."
I had a stroke and when we arrived we were looked after immediately. Yes there was waiting time but I was most impressed with all the tests they put me through and I recovered. They admitted me overnight. Most impressed with the doctors and the facility. A class hospital!
I have been waiting for over 3 months for a biopsy as a result of an ultrasound. My GP recommended an expedited biopsy from Kelowna General Hospital when she received the results of the ultrasound and was told they do not take expedited requests. For outpatient care, I rate KGH no stars. It is terrible to wait this long when early diagnosis is the key to treatment should it be cancer.
Only reason value for dollar is rated 3 stars is because of the food served to patients. I am not known as a picky eater but I couldn't believe how sub standard the food is. Some of it I wouldn't feed to a dog. Everyone in the hospital is trying so hard to make this facility a safe, caring and friendly environment........but the food. Oh my. What a challenge. Definitely requires extreme improvement. Patients need food is a necessary part of healing too. I was on a general food diet and most of it I would rarely, if ever, serve at home. Really lets the efforts of all down. All the staff I encountered, regardless of job description, were kind, caring, pleasant and highly proficient people. I have the highest regard for them all. Wonderful...........but the food.....oh my.
I spent almost 2 months at KGH and have very little to say that is negative. My care was very good; staff always polite, food was fresh and wholesome & good even without salt. Paramedics were also very gentle & polite. Food was occasionally not on time but overall it was mostly on time. My treatment for my condition was thorough & successful. I have also used the emergency and the majority of times the waiting period was reasonably quick. Was not bothered wanting to go home because my stay was pleasant. KGH, in my opinion is far better than Surrey Memorial or even Vancouver General.
Went to KGH suffering from a heart attack and apart from the initial front desk processing (initially asking me to wait in the line up) the rest of my experience was excellent. First rate facilities and incredible staff ... I was in the O.R. before I could blink and could not have received any better treatment elsewhere. Accolades to all of the staff for providing exceptional service in an often thankless environment.
