Ratings for St. Paul's Hospital
I had a surgery at Saint Paul and I also went to ER once. Every time I was treated very well. The doctors, ambulance staff and nurses were great. They need to upgrade the building. I think St. Paul Hospital should stay there forever because is the only hospital in West end busy area. In case of earthquake, storm, fire or bus traffic is impossible to get fast to Terminal Ave.
The first night I went into the ER for a high fever, i was taken care of right away with amazing nurses and Doctor. I got called to go back the next day for more antibiotics because a blood bacteria was found. The 2nd day was horrible! The nurse and doctor I had attend to me seemed to care less. I was still running a high fever and headache and asked for some tylenol but was ignored! The Doctor the night before told me to take it every 4hrs no matter what to keep my fever down. I was shivering I was so cold while getting my IV drip. Thankfully the other nurse was off shift and another very nice one took over. She got me a warm blanket and some water right away! Thank you for that. The Hospital is very dirty especially washrooms OMG I am absolutely mortified by this. Cleaner bathrooms anywhere than here. I wont even say what I saw in there. How can a hospital have this dirty of washrooms? Gas stations are cleaner than these. A big thank to staff on my first day though as they were so amazing! Wish they were there on the 2nd day on my visit back there. I have huge respect for healthcare workers as I have a few in my family.
This is a very old hospital that certainly needs to be replaced. That said my experiences with St Paul's are very positive. Staff constantly stops if you are trying to find your way and directs you to where you need to be, that includes nursing staff, maintenance and support staff. I've just had a major surgery at St Paul's and I am so grateful I had the opportunity to be treated here. Right from the admitting clerk thru to recovery and being released I was treated with kindness and respect. Recovery nurses are particularly lovely, very kind and quick to respond to any discomfort. I even found the food pretty decent, food that was supposed to be hot was hot and what was supposed to be cold was cold. This is a very busy inner city hospital looking after a high amount of disinfranchised clientele so I think they face a great deal more challenges than most hospitals. That they manage to remain caring and kind is to their credit. Thank you for the excellent care.
I had worst experience ever during my hospitalized at St. Paul’s Hospital. I felt my life exposed to danger. At the end, I begged them to release me out from the hospital after the major surgery. I even didn’t want to stay there for a second. As soon as I arrived my home, I took shower and dispose all clothes I wore at the hospital and still I felt I’m so contaminated from the hospital environment. They seriously and immediately need improve their system and procedure.
A horrendous dump!!!!! A filthy, disgusting, crumbling environment! Who knows what unintended diseases you could pick up in this dump! RUDE, RACIST doctors who are incredibly unhelpful with patients, and take no responsibility for anything! This includes the administrative staff! Administrative procedures and waiting times that may be suitable for the 19th century, but boggle the mind naturally in the 21st century! No wonder this armpit of the medical establishment has a such a horrible reputation! And people in Canada have the NERVE to make jokes about the American Healthcare system. because they don't guarantee healthcare for all?!?!? So the incompetent that exists here is that much better?!?!? Are you serious!?!? AVOID THIS DUMP IF YOU VALUE YOUR LIFE!
I hate, hate this hospital. Cleanliness 0 Services 0 I was tortured in one of those rooms for a hole night, very cold and very sick, with UTI, insufficient blankets,food on the floor, is extremely degrading, and all because I ask about my medication. I am a disable patient with a very grave, recent medical history and post liver transplant for approx. 6 years. Code white was call ad-hoc on me and I was treated violently and worst then a criminal, what a waiste of tax payers money, these hospital units are nothing more than jails and the stuff/nurses infringes on your human rights every step of the way. Also the security guards where excessively violent, I oppose no resistance what so ever, Went like a lamb to the slutter, felt like in the old Comunist regim. What a shame for our province is the Mental Health ACT
