We are fortuneate to have an amazing world class hospital in Halifax. The comments before me complain about trivial things like clerks chewing gum...? My life was saved at zero cost to me through the extensive medical equipment and amazing staff. Some people had bad days...just like everyday life.

Medavie Health runs the health care system in NS (and PEI) and it is corrupt to the core. Falsifying medical records is the norm to cover up mistakes; abusing patients is common practice as no one will be held accountable due to the unimaginable chaos and corruption that prevails. Worse yet, there is a common practice of assaulting females with the illegal use of Versed. EHS, Respirology Dept, Radiology Dept, ECHO department at the Infirmary all well aware of females being given versed illegally and assaulted. There is a massive cover up by such people like Dr. Meridith Chiasson, Dr. Alex Nelson, Dr. Hernandez, Dr. Kathryn Whittemore (Dal med resident under Dr. Chiasson), Donna Lee and Janet Kimberly Styles in the ECHO department at the Infirmary -falsifying medical records and the list goes on. Who knows? The entire corrupted health care system, Dal med school, Medavie who promotes it, the hospitals. No one is accountable for their corrupted, unethical acts because those in charge and are in positions of power promote and perpetuate it. Our health system is not just broken as it is destroyed.

I am 38yrs old and unable to work for a year and unable to take care of my children. I have issues with my cervical spine causing ongoing pain 24/7 and numbness in my limbs. I am unable to do anything and when I call Dr Mcneelys office (halifax) the receptionist is not very nice and I have not been given an appointment. My life is in turmoil with pain and I don't know how much longer I can do this. I just want help!

WTF some employee said that I refused treatment after I waited 8.5 frickin hours to be seen and then asked me if I wanted to be put back in the system. Why would I wait if I refused treatment! Someone in emergency didn't want to do their job so they said I refused treatment. I hope karma gets them.

Noise is extreme. Shared room with a woman who's family were coughing, in all night and day, using cell phones, tromping through. Nurses were mostly poor listeners and one even dose me the pills belonging to my room mate. Night sitters when male were idiots, playing noisy lap top games, buzzing nurses instead of getting a glass of water themselves when asked. Not a job for young men, but the young women excellent. One doctor on call so arrogant and blabby you wanted to push her out a window. Thought the world of herself and actually said to me that I should not bite the hand that feeds me, when she is the one being fed if bank account examined, by this farce. She confuse 'poor' with 'stupid' and should be fired. Some of the student nurses were excellent, but the older ones just want to be retired and the sooner, the better. One of them slammed a blood tap into my forearm muscles that took eight weeks to recover. It was never used. Those things are never used. I felt like I was in a very dark comedy. Outside the hospital is a community garden that was in full bloom of every vegetable, yet inside the hospital, food of no nutritional value, never a fresh fruit or veg, sickeningly bad food. No logic.

The person running this filthy hospital should be held accountable for all the harm and deaths resulting from blatant incompetence of this unethical place the government calls a hospital. Uncaring staff; money hungry incompetent 'doctors' prevail.

I really don't think anyone reads these comments however I just want to say that I was unimpressed by the clerk who registered me for a Diagnostic exam was chewing gum the entire time she was taking my information. As I used to be a supervisor there this would never happened in my time.....also the bathroom needs a lot of attention.

In June an ER doctor made recommendations to have an ECHO for the ongoing chest pain and cardiac damage for a patient, as well as, a respirology referral due to the ongoing collapsing of a patient's lungs. Although the ER doctor was specific in that Dr. Chiasson was not to have and/or interfere with the recommendations to help this patient, as Dr. Chiasson was under investigation for many illegal acts which were reported, some of the illegal acts had been reported by this particular patient. (Note: the corrupted Dr. Chiasson was writing falsified reports, abusing patients, denying appropriate health care, covering up alleged negligence, covering up and threatening females who had been illegally given versed overdoses and suffered ongoing medical harm as a result; AND was under active investigations where she was given specific warnings by investigators to stay away from patients who had made complaints against her while the investigations were ongoing) However, Dr. Chiasson does not comply to any rules, regulations, warnings, ethics, and/or laws. Dr. Chiasson, for example, still interferred numerous times with the patient getting the needed urgent health care she required, as per the ER Doctor in June. Regardless of the many warnings, to Dr. Chiasson, by the investigators, to stop interfering and causing further harm to patients while she was under investigation, she refused to stop. Dr. Hernandez, Head of the Respiratory Department and Chiasson's boss, is well aware of the ongoing damage, harm to the patient; complaints against Chiasson and ongoing formal investigations, regarding patients being denied health care, the abuses patients have endured as a result; BUT, he continues to protect and allow Dr. Chiasson to interfere and cause the patients further harm. He is promoting this alleged negligence and other illegal acts of his staff rather than stopping it. One patient has been given a fatal prognosis as a result of Dr. Chiasson and Dr. Drost (also works in association with the Respiratory Dept at the Infirmary). To date, Dr. Chiasson continues to practice her 'Art of Incompetent Abuses against Patients' with the help of her colleages, bosses and the Hospital who employs such deviants. This hospital, Head of Respiratory Department, and many doctors, knew about this for a year. What a disgrace of a hospital and a health care system we have in NS. It is corrupted to the very core and more will die as a result. . These doctors are knowingly permitted to cause severe harm and death to patients while those who run the hospital are promoting the illegal acts and cover ups so there is no accountability. This is the most dangerous health care system a patient could ever be exposed to and some don't even know the corrupted dangerous mess they just walked into, while expecting to get ethical medical care by competent doctors.

Who is in charge of this incompetent mess called a hospital? There needs to be an outside investigation into the blatant disregard for patients and no health care at this so called hospital. I was informed that NO ONE at this facility, NO ONE within the respiratory department can assess anyone with cystic lung disease and one needs to be sent to the USA for assessments. What about outside the province, like Ontario where lung transplants take place. So now patients are being referred to other countries to be assessed??? We have no health care. 3rd world countries have better health care and more ethical, competent doctors. Where is the tax dollars for health care in NS going?? We need INVESTIGATIONS NOW!! Who is in charge of this Centre of corrupted no health care mess??
