The EMERGENCY dept staff don't all appear to be working off the same page! I am from BC and had to visit the emerg twice in Aug 2017, all tests performed came back negative/normal except my white blood count was elevated. I had contacted the emerg numerous times to have all the results sent to my doctor in BC; my sister also contacted them to have the results forwarded. Every time, we were told they would be faxed ... but they never were. I had contacted the emerg again to find out why and was then told that they don't send records/results out of province unless requested by the doctor! If I wanted them sent to me there would be a fee! This is absolutely ridiculous! Why was neither of us told about this sooner? They had all the info for my doctor; these are part of MY medical records and I am telling them to send them, yet they won't. What is wrong with our medical system? A lot! We as individuals should not have to pay for our medical records to be sent anywhere. Prisoners don't pay to have their records transferred from one location to another, but law abiding citizens do! BS
I had a surgical procedure done there on my knee the other day and I was impressed by the professionalism and courtesy of all their staff from doctors to nurses to administration and support staff. Very friendly, family like atmosphere where you are still a person and not just a number like in many bigger hospitals. The pace is a bit slower which is refreshing these days. All in all a very positive experience for me and my wife, as we spent most of the day there. I guess it also didn't hurt that my wife, a retired nurse, met some other nurses there that she knew. I'll go back there in a heartbeat especially since it is only 30 minutes drive from Halifax. Windsor can be proud of this hospital. On a side note though, the parking lot needs a new paving job very badly.
