I was brought to the Dartmouth General for severe stomach pain. The ER nurses were fantastic!had me in right away. But when I was on the inside everything went down hill. My husband was with me. I was taken to get an X-ray,I was given something to make my pain go away so I wasn’t able to talk or sit up. The lady proceeded to take me to X-ray and the technician looked at me and said ,,I can’t X-ray her she can’t even sit up. The lady that took me into the X-ray room had me partly sat up but when the technician said she couldn’t do the X-ray she just let me go and I fell back pretty hard. I was in the hallway for 5 hours then they put me in a room with another lady. My pain came back with vengeance and my husband wasn’t with me so I had to just suffer the pain,it was so bad I was rubbing my ankles together and they were bleeding before anyone came in to give me a needle. I really think the government should have a lot more Dr’s at this hospital.i mean what in God’s name are they doing with our taxes????

This is an excellent place for socializing. I love hanging out and talking about stuff with the nurses. We watch T.V and talk about so many things: Vacation,Netflix, coworkers and Hot Doctors. My only complaint is that the ICU is too loud with screaming patients. It gets so bad that we have to move our conversation with the nurses outside the building at Tim Hortons. It is ok though, when we come back the patients pass out--clearly they got medical attention and are just resting. I suggest for the Hospital to invest in more methods to ignore patients. Clearly using two waiting rooms isn't enough. I suggest more lunch-breaks and meditation breaks. It would be so cool to bust out a yoga mat and meditate while patients are waiting and worrying. Something,something chaos and harmony makes a great meditation atmosphere :)

ER wait here isn’t always a joke, “not busy, won’t be long” equates to 5+ hours

I had an hour and a half operation on my hand on October 31st. Everyone at Dartmouth General was efficient, helpful and friendly. Registration, outpatients registration, butterfly registration, blood work, EKG, nurses, anesthetist, doctor and the woman who wheeled me to the front door. Thank you. Barrie MacLeod

Hospital is very dirty and very disorganized. Floors and doors are dirty , garbage in floors, ER windows look like they've never been cleaned.

The main entrance is horrible. Lack of maintenance and cleaning of the sliding doors that greet you. Heavy salt stained doors, slides that jam open. Just not is expected to be found in a hospital. Staff at the reception on the other hand was warm, friendly and helpful.

Smells gross, looks dirty, longer wait times. Certain doctors are pretty bad towards patients with chronic pain & tachycardia.

Went to emergency over the weekend. Was filthy. Was put into a room where the bedding wasn't changed, bloody bandages on the floor and was awful. The first doctor drilled me over and over again not listening to what I was saying. I told her I had a gastric attack after having a sip of wine which didn't go well with my reflux and she took that as if I was allergic to wine and why would I drink something I was allergic to. After I needed a needle which I had to wait an hour and a half for. Worse hospital ever!! So angry.
