The receptionist for booking Ultrasounds is terrible to deal with. She is rude and does not have any patience in answering your questions, she sighs when asked a question as if annoyed. My family Drs receptionist even said "she's not very friendly" The rest of the iwk is great, they hire special people to do that job. Very thankful to have them during that process !
Wo derful experience since I was born. Transitioned years ago due to age, but pain team needs some working on. They're not efficient with their work and schedule is terrible. Not enough options for children with severe, crippling chronic pain, especially invisible illnesses.
I just had my first child and have to say the staff at the iwk are amazing. I wanted to have my baby without an epidural and the nurse I had in the delivery room was awesome and so encouraging and helpful. I also had the same nurse for both nights I was there and she was incredibly helpful helping with breastfeeding and answering any questions I had for her. I will say that the rooms and delivery rooms could use a bit of work as they are quite run down.
My son has hypo plastic left heart. If it wasn't for this hospital he would never be here. At first they pushed abortion as I am a young mom but he is now four years old and doing wonderfully you would never know the difference between him and his younger brother. They have excellent care and after care to follow him throw his whole journey of life :) love the heart centre, cardiologist there couldn't ask for better!!
I've just outgrown the IWK because of my age but I grew up seeing specialists and undergoing procedures at the IWK. It's an absolutely wonderful facility and the staff are superb all around. Special shoutout to the nurses and technicians who work so so hard and help us chronic kids smile on even our worst days.
The IWK is an acceptable hospital for PHYSICAL ailments. Any form of mental health issues, they are poorly equipped to deal with. Especially in regards to teenagers. A terrible bedside manner, a poor attitude for mental health beyond "stability" and "placate the parents" and will knowingly release suicidal youth the minute they are stitched up. The hospital has a notorious habit of firing youth care workers and other qualified staff and replacing them with nurses, who are both ill equipped and poorly educated in regards to treating mental health issues, and the IWK's nursing staff has some of the worst bedside manner I have ever seen. The IWK bends over backwards to please the Nurses Union to to detriment of it's patients. This hospital is ill advised for anything but the most straightforward of physical ailments.
