Going to SOGH emergency is a crapshoot of weather you get competent medical care. The first time my husband was admitted to SOGH he has pneumonia filling both of his lungs and instead of receiving treatment he was admitted to the ward until his oxygen level dropped below 70% when they had to rush him to Penticton where he had to be intibated and was on life support for 11 days. On two other occasions he was admitted to SOGH with lung infections and hew was treated so callously by the medical staff that he begged me to take him to Penticton, which I had to do as they refused to transfer him (on one occassion the nurse left his IV in and told me to just "yank it out" if I changed my mind about taking him to Penticton.) Now I take him by car straight to Penticton instead of calling an ambulance that has to take him to the nearest hospital which is SOGH.

The staff, from Admitting to nurse and doctor care, have always been courteous, efficient and helpful whenever we have had to use their services. ER wait times are reasonable and scheduled services normally occur on time. This hospital exceeds all our expectations of care.
