Ratings for Halifax Infirmary
In my opinion the heart transplant team at the infirmary are lacking the skills that other major cities have.5 transplant a year and one died from bad decisions who should have survived. All covered up. If the doctors got no ski trips or birthday parties you might survive the heart transplant. It's time to clean house.
Worst service I received ever! I was shot that how bad the service they provided. Those nurses are careless about patients. And you never know who to assess patients who can be seen by doctor first, when one was suffering from pain and need to wait for more than 4 hours, and the other was called in shortly but he can talk and laugh loud.
Patients are dying needlessly here and it is being ignored by the heads of departments and the hospital as well as the NS Health Authority. Everyone is protected by lawyers, compliments of the government (tax payers monies). I will look into making complaints with Human rights as being denied adequate and/or competent health care and causing death of patients would seem to violate the human rights laws that Canada has signed. Yet, millions, if not billions are being funded to this mess of an (un)healthy (Un)caring system. NS is part of Canada and Canadians are dying as a result. If the province refuses to step in to stop the corrupted system they have and continue to perpetuate, then maybe the Canadian government needs to step in.
This so called hospital is run by the brain dead and 'dummed down' medical staff from Dalhousie Medical School. When mistakes are made, they are taught to cover it up with made up medical reports, pull medical reports and re-write them, and get other buddies (what they refer to as doctors, residents) to cover up their messes. Poor excuse for a hospital, no excuses for the incompetence that prevails here. Letting patients die, killing patients with negligence is the NS Health Authority's way to solve their physician shortage. Less patients and no need to recruit doctors. There is no competent doctor or specialist who would ever step foot into this nest of negligence and corruption.
The ECHO department is as bad as the respiratory department. The hospital is plagued with incompetence. The NS Health Authority is as diseased as the hospitals it runs. No wonder the doctors are running and recruitment is useless. No competent health care in NS. This excuse of a hospital is an example of how bad the health care system really is in this province. Where is all the government money really going for health care???
3rd world health care would be a step up. The NS Health Authority is ultimately responsible and there needs to be an urgent and transparent investigation in regards to the denial of appropriate health care at the Infirmary. It appears the Infirmary is incapable of being run in any sort of legitimate fashion and cannot govern itself appropriately. No investigations and cover ups are the norm. The government cannot or will not clean up the health care system in NS. A totally broken down health care system with ongoing bogus promises to clean it up. Unfortunately patients are dying as a result.
Respiratory Department at this hospital is infamous for incompetence and corruption. The department is in total chaos and the incompetence are well known by both the head of the department and the hospital. If referred to a doctor who works at this department, ask for another referral. It could save your life.
According to Dr. Nelson, there is no respirologist who will do lung assessments for lung transplant assessments in his department. According to the lung transplant NS site, there are supposedly 2 doctors in his department who do assessments. Regardless, I was told I had to be sent to the States to get an assessment as there was NO specialist in NS to do the appropriate assessment. Dr. Nelson works with the Head of the Respiology Dept, Dr. Hernandez. The NS lung association needs to update their information.
