As a patient being at Vancouver General Hospital I received excellent care and was very fortunate to have an excellent surgeon Dr Richard Cook and a very well experienced cardiologist Dr Ken Gin. I wanted to Thank the whole team for their support and help and for giving me another chance on life. Thank You From CH
I went to VGH Emergency twice. My heart was beating at 220/min - they immediately attended me, reset my heart and treated me like a VIP - the most friendly, kind and competent staff - I am in debt to them forever - May God protect them all. We have the best health care system in the world.
They literally gave me an infection. Horrible staff, I felt like I was on greys anatomy but I was only dealing with the interns. Scary. Even the staff with "knowledge" know little to nothing about human anatomy. They gave me the wrong instructions for care which lead me to have a horrible infection. I ended up at a different hospital. The looks on their face when I said I went to VGH.... I had known then I made a horrible mistake.
Had spine surgery Mar. 18. 2019. Am home now in the Cariboo healing. From the surgery team, the nurses, the ladies bringing my meals everyone were absolutely amazing. I've raved about my stay at VGH to everyone I've talked to about my time in hospital. Thank you to all of you, the best treatment I've ever received. Sincerely. J.M. Cautley-Davis
DO NOT GO TO VANCOUVER GENERAL HOSPITAL BECAUSE YOU WILL BE RISKING YOUR HEALTH! I am writing specifically about VGH Emergency and one of its specialty clinic teams because I do not want anyone else to suffer as I did. I was sent urgently from my neighbourhood drop-in clinic to VGH Emergency in regard to test results. I was kept waiting in the Waiting Room for over 9 hours even though VGH Emergency was not busy. I was told that a clinic team member would be coming down to see me; no one ever came. When I asked why no one was going to come after I had waited over 9 hours, I was given a piece of paper with an appointment scheduled by the Resident Doctor for the next morning with a specialist at a nearby VGH building of specialization, but when I showed up for the scheduled appointment, I was told that there was no record of the appointment being made, so I would need to return to VGH Emergency to find out what had gone wrong with the arrangements. I did so, and after waiting another 2 hours, I was told that another appointment was being made at St. Paul's Hospital instead and they would call me. Luckily, I did not believe VGH at this point and went to St. Paul's immediately, which confirmed that no such appointment had been arranged by VGH at St. Paul''s either. Due to my obvious poor health condition, a sympathetic doctor at St. Paul's did tests and urgently sent me to St. Paul's Emergency where I was immediately seen, put on medications and kept in the hospital for 2 days until my condition improved. If I had not taken it on myself to go to St. Paul's, I do not think that I would be here today to write this advice. PLEASE SAVE YOURSELF A LOT OF SUFFERING = DO NOT GO TO VGH.
Hear this one.. I was at vgh on the 26th in the morning,earlier i was diagnosed with a blood clot on the left leg ,top to bottom.The lady doctor did not look at my leg,or do a 2nd ultrasound,the on call blood doctor was not happy.later that day hemotoligist called me back to get back right away for another ultrasound ,it was 230 pm and i told them i needed my blood thinner shot on the belly at 330 well 430 i reminded them ,630 i again was getting upset and 1030 etc and no shot,i was discharged with no blood thinner.i was shocked
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.
