This hospital needs a turnover. The board supports an archaic and non current administration. The emergency department functionality is unbelievably bad. We have highly paid staff and so many vice president's. The patient and tax payer are getting very poor value and return. It is time the Ministry did a thorough review of this hospital. Staff are robotic and unhappy..they even say so. As a patient the staff said the atmosphere and culture is toxic...I agree. The only real judge of performance and care is the patient.. this patient says this hospital needs work..a lot of work!

My friend had a stroke and went to the RVH hospital this past Tuesday was left to sit for hours never given low dose aspirin sent hope with stroke symptoms of a dropping face and numbness and given a date for the heart and stroke clinic a week or more to come back. IF you go to the RVH to die it is the place to go. UNBEILEVABLE

It looks like a very nice hospital but the lack of knowledge or care from the staff in the palliative care unit is mind blowing. They only thing they know how to do is hand out drugs, and most of the time not knowing how it will effect the patient. We almost lost my mother the first day she was there bcuz they overdosed her. She started to get better until one of the nurses felt the need to overdose her again. The nurses actually believe they are dr's and 95% of the drs dont even care. If u care about your loved one then don't bring them to rvh. The only good thing I can say is that there was one real dr there, and he was the only one who actually cared about his patients . Its been almost a year and I still cant believe what they did to my mom, nor can I understand it. Watch out for nurse O if she is still there too

there is Goose droppinsall over the place on sidewalks going into this RVH. Staff are rude, The service you get is horrible! You want too die quick go too RVH Barrie. No One seems too care there. N their washrooms need a good cleaning with some vinegar. Goose droppings is discussing out n about filthy. Some one needs too go n clean and disinfect inside n out. I would rather go too New Market then Barrie RVH centre.

If you want to be lectured at during a time of stress, be-littled, and have your thoughts/comments ignored, the ER doctors at RVH are a perfect match.

My husband had an eye injury and went to the emergency at the RVH, he was seen by the triage nurse and was quickly seen by a doctor to make sure there was no risk of permanent damage, as soon as this was conclusive, he waited for an ophthalmologist, which took awhile, but we knew that things would be ok. Staff was efficient and very professional- I would go to the emergency any time I felt a need.

The ER department is extremely slow, inefficient,dirty, and not helpful. If possible go to Newmarket or Orillia for better service, care and compassion.

I just had a horrible experience at this hospital, the emerge dept leaves something to be desired. I spent 10 hours in emerge ridiculous. People in Barrie and in our Country need to ban together to change the treatment we receive. If you need to go to the hospital, your obviously are sick, the last thing you need when your that sick, is more stress from the e.r. Staff. I myself have experienced the way they treat people as well as watched other people leave in tears not getting any help in pain. These doctors and nurses chose this profession, surely had some training in how to deal with very sick people in emerge but based on what I’ve seen, that isn’t happening. Last point if you don’t get any help and question these doctors look out, one wrote a letter on my file, saying I was aggressive etc.....because I questioned why he wasn’t helping me, that there telling me is on my file, sent to my family go etc...I am now fighting this letter as it is totally untrue. My question here is what gives a emerge doctor the write, to put things on your personal file, to which I had no knowledge at the time, that follows you throughout your life that isn’t even true, just because he hasn’t helped you trying to shove you out the door and you complain. Everyone needs to be afraid of this so called power. We Canadians need to do something about what’s happening here. After all we do pay for our healthcare......
