This hospital has to be the worst lower mainland. Sent home an end stage cancer patient because there was no ultrasound tech to drain 4 liters of fluid from belly. He's in excruciating pain. Was told we'd get a call to come next day and it would be done today. Talked to radiology and was told they have begged the drs not to say that because they are only open mon-fri, 8-4. So we wasted 24 hrs watching him suffer when we could of gone to a better equipt hospital.
This is in regards to radiology at RM Hospital. I just had a specialist consult and was reviewing ctscans done at RM raidiology dept and there was no mention of a problem although the problem was clearly visible in 2016, 2014 - these scans were done to monitor a situation and from their reports there was no abnormalities. So if the radiologists cant understand if there is an issue are not well trained enough to see them on a scan when they do a report for work why would I or anyone ever choose to use RM radiology again?
Very rude and unprofessional psych nurse who accused me of being manipulative for presenting with acute suicidality. I was told that I was not suicidal, and was sent away from emergency. I went home and made a serious suicide attempt. I blame the doctor and nurse who saw me. The nurse was yelling in from of all the staff that I was manipulative in saying I was suicidal.
First set of X-rays I had done were for an ankle injury. When I walked in the room there were dirty linens on the table. The technitian took the linens off the table and then proceeded to get me onto the table without it being wiped down. Second set of X-rays at a later date were done for my sinuses. The technitian for these X-rays was extremely rude, and got mad because I had politely asked her to clean the dried blood that was on the board that I had to put my face up against. The lack of sanitary practice is exactly how disease is spread. Not acceptable.
Not busy and very thorough about the symptoms accompanied with the pain. Great nurses and the doctor had a wonderful bed manor that I have not seen in any hospitals in the lower mainland. Especially the over busy over run abbotsoford hospital. I k of where I am going next time!!,! Such a more relaxing experience! Cudos to the staff there!
This place is dangerously overworked and understaffed, it is a filthy and disgusting place. Don't be fooled by the Emerg...go look at the second floor most often the toilets don't work it looks third world......worse....it's so disgusting, look what is fed to patients....I would not feed my dog......and I don't expect much. I needed antbiotics for contact infection from that place tv needs to go in there to the second floor where the poor seniors are kept...it's so gross you would never think it's ok for Canadian standards......people need to go see.
DO NOT BRING ANYONE YOU CARE ABOUT TO EMERGENCY HERE!! If there are serious issues on hand! We had over 9 visits in one month and they just kept sending her back, given two prescriptions for something that was not even valid and the wrong prescription that interacts badly with her medications. The 7th visit over drugged her then admitted, given 3 different medications that could kill her changing it when notified she cant be taking them. sent home returned next day because medications prescribed once again pretty much made her unresponsive. Dr in am wanted to stop all new medications. New Dr came in from shift change and was about to give her the same medications that put her back there then said oh I should read the charts and follow up with last Dr. Like what the heck. They pretty much are just over sedating her and causing more harm than good with no accurate diagnosis. Most of the Staff are Rude the place is dirty and patients are ignored. Vital machines are beeping constantly with out being checked just ignored. This place needs to be replaced by Dr's who actually care and nurses who want to do their jobs. We had 1 good Dr from all the visits to the ER for all those times., but still nothing . Lack of communication between staff about client care and lack of knowledge of patient history. Truly disgusted by the care RMH gives. If you have to come here watch over your loved one and ask all the questions you can and always be aware of what medications they are pumping into them. One bad mistake or careless act can kill, than its to late...
