Went in on Sept 17th with an injury to my foot. I waited 8 hours before seeing a Dr and receiving xrays. At that point there was still no plan in place. I left and was referred to an excellent surgeon who dealt with it the next day. The nurses were very pleasant but the system is not working at this facility. This is inhumane and abusive treatment with beyond excessive wait times.

This is the only hospital I will go to! ( if taking myself ) the nurses are amazing! The doctors always explain everything and have made me feel comfortable. The hospital is very well taken care of,and therefore is always clean.

I was taken to VGH on Aug 13th for a cut on my foot which required stitches. I waited 7 1/2 hours. A nurse came in and looked at my foot and dissapeared, never to be seen again. I hobbled home in disgust and pain and went to Misericordia where I work the next morning. My foot was attended to in 5 minutes and I was even given a tetanus shot which VGH failed to do. This was horrible service which should never have happened.

Considering that this place is for urgent health issues that need to be looked after the same day, but aren't for life and death issues (like what should be going to an ER) the wait time wasn't too horrible. This place does get clogged up with patients who have non-urgent issues (literally saw an asian man who had a papercut and obvious language barrier) and who should really just be going to a walk in clinic, but the staff treats them appropriately in a timely manner. Also reminder, this is UNIVERSAL health care. It's not free. Tax payers are paying for all the people who cannot (or will not) afford to pay, yet who abuse the system by clogging up the ER and Urgent Care waiting times with issues that could be easily taken care of at one of the many walk in clinics. Especially by drug seekers who go from hospital to hospital to get some fix. Overall, great experience if you are realistic about wait times.

Wait time of 2 hours is ridiculous. They weren’t even busy. Some rude nurses lack of empathy.

Went the ER (before it shut down, thankfully) a few times for my asthma. The wait times were horrendous. Also one of the nurses who regularly worked at the triage (she had dark, medium length, curly hair if I recall) was incredibly condescending and rude, she also frequently ignored patients who needed to be triaged/looked at in favour of chatting to her friends that came to visit her.
