Treat people worse than animals. SHAME. Wouldn’t give the food to an animal. The food ends up uneaten. They should throw the food into the garbage in Surrey and save wear on tires. I was lying in my own waste for days. Even animals in a slaughterhouse are hosed down. I had to check myself out to find food and home to a shower.
All of the staff that I interacted with were fabulous : surgeon, doctors, nurses, food delivery girl etc The food itself was less than spectacular, but not to the level that I would call it “gross”. As a diabetic I appreciate that they remembered to bring me snacks .
I came into the hospital cause I had been throwing up all day for the last 4 months starting from the morning when I wake up to the time I sleep. I was on the edge and I couldn’t even function as a human being. I went into the hospital and they did not help me one bit. I waited at the hospital from 10 pm to 3 am in the morning for them to just prescribe be some anti nausea pills and go home. I couldn’t believe that had happened. I could have done the same thing at my family doctor in less than 20 min. I only came to the Hospital because I couldn’t stand what I was going through anymore. IF YOU WANT HELP, DO NOT COME TO THIS HOSPITAL.
June 26th I arrived in Vancouver 10 days after surgery had been performed on my right femur. I was eager to have an orthopaedic surgeon assess my leg so that I could start physiotherapy. I went to the Emergency since this seemed the fastest way to be seen. I was greeted by an emergency nurse who questioned me with a 'Why are you here?!' I told her I wanted to have my leg examined. Again, she said in a menacing voice: 'Why are you here?!' I told her again why I was there, and she yelled at me, saying: 'Why aren't you at St. Paul's?! That's closer to you!" I told her I was more familiar with VGH. She said I'd receive no better treatment at VGH than at St. Pauls. By now I felt humiliated, bullied, and a burden. She put me in the hall outside Triage, where I waited for 2 hours or so. Feeling I may have been placed at the bottom of the barrel, I took myself and my broken femur outside in my wheelchair and called for a friend to pick me up. By this time I was in tears. Picture this: a 69-year-old woman in a wheelchair, who has just had surgery in another country for a broken femur and is still in pain, returns home to Vancouver to be treated like she's a nuisance to the medical profession. Appalling attitude -- appalling treatment! Barbara Wood -- 15/12/48
HORRIBLE attitude from Melissa (?) at MRI department. She is a very tanned caucasian with a very tall nose. Accompanied my father to his appointment for my first time (usually someone else accompanies). She was so impatient with me when I was trying to figure out his questionnaire and she told me in exact words that “If you (I) knew, I wouldn’t have to waste my coffee break”. Another lady in the back commented that Melissa could’ve just checked his history and she makes an excuse of the computer being too slow. This type of attitude is UNACCEPTABLE, doesn’t matter if she’s an MOA or LPN/RN or whatever she is. I didn’t make any complaints as I assume she might purposely make us wait in line longer for the scan. She is not suitable to work in this field if she can be so blunt to patients. John later took over and he was AMAZING. He was jet lagged as well but his attitude was FAR beyond amazing.
