My tax dollars deserve more. Every trip here has been a disaster. Several of the nurses here are nasty, rude, and incapable of listening or utilising common sense. I was brought here after being struck by a car. I started crying when I realised they were bringing me into vgh. Not VGH was all I could think. Everything went asexpected expected. HORRIBLY . They gave me morphineAG after I repeatedly told them out has no effect on me as I don't produce the enzyme that processes it. By the time they figured out I wasn't lying they couldn't give me anything else because they just kept giving me more morphine. Then they set my arm twisted and put me in much too small of a sling so it set bent as well. Of course all very painful. My 3 other experiences here for referred procedures were at least as disastrous. I have had zero bad experiences at other hospitals other than the wait which is a given or minor things. VGH is a curse
VGH has always been a very long ER wait, but you get very very good doctors. It was a very informative visit each time up until I experienced the worst doctor and nurse ever. I can't remember the doctor's name anymore, but reason for admitting was because of extremely high blood pressure (in 200's zone) and we were sent home being told that it is normal and NOT life threatening, it is not dangerous at all and was not entirely necessary to go ER. The ER nurse (Heather) was really really rude as well. Overall, all other visits to VGH are super duper amazing except this. the 1/5 would be strictly for the tall Asian doctor and nurse Heather.
Terrible personnel, they treated me like I'm not a human. It was post surgery emergency, I had a surgery that day at VGH, I was suffocating and the ambulance brought me to the same hospital. I had to get my family to drive me all the way to St. Paul's, if they didn't I don't know what would have happened. They have zero professionalism and no compassion. I'm never going back to VGH.
I was on the vgh phyche ward certified and was told by a nurse to take some medication, when I said not until they tell me what it is and how it interacts with my body. Next thing I knew 5 security hold me down and a needle in my butt. I'll always remember it cuz it was unhumanitarian.
I've been to VGH emergency as well as medical wards on a few occasions. Nurses were good for the most part and did not keep me waiting to see the doctor before I was given minor medications such as anti-nausea or pain medicine. Royal Columbian and Eagle Ridge both made me wait 4+ hours to see doctor before any minor medications were given. The doctors here are exceptional - they ran every single test and came up with diagnosis and treatment plans within hours. They follow correct isolation procedures for the immune compromised and infected and actually care about the well being of their patients. I have had horrible experiences at other hospitals, really awful treatment. This is the best hospital to go to.
Patient of vgh dental clinic for five years. I have been dropped three times because of clinic problems. Always see someone different and no one is accountable. All they care about is money. Main receptionist is a liar r and beyond rude. Surprised she has a job never mind dealing with sick people. Can't say one good thing about the clinic or it's staff, wish i could.
