Had surgery there last week. Stayed overnight and everyone from admitting to release was wonderful. My nurses Carrie and Lena were amazing, and was taken care of all night. Worth the hour drive.

Nurses have HORRIBLE bed side manner. And laugh at patients who are in pain instead of helping.

I would like to share an experience at Joe Brant Hospital in Burlington. My 85 year old mother with dementia was admitted 2 weeks ago for yielding a meat hammer outside her apartment door because of her paranoia of someone being in her home. She was not taking her meds because of the Demetia and forgetfulness and has these episodes. She has been in a lockdown floor for 2 weeks now and has turned into a wonderful sweet old lady. This is due to the fact she is in a controlled environment and has her meds and food regulated. She was deemed incapable of living on her own or taking care of herself by CCAC previous to her admission to the hospital. We have now been informed that she is being released and sent home. We did not agree to this and had asked for her to be put into a home where she would be cared for. However, Joe Brant felt she was not eligible for a home. They are now releasing her on Monday, sending her home in a taxi, without the consent of the family. This is an old lady that cannot take her meds, cook, go grocery shopping nor do her finances...I fail to see how she is not eligible for a home!!

This new hospital is beautiful.however the staff are terrible.i arrived in emergency with severe urine retention.Two nurses started walking me down a hallway to a room then decided to walk me to another room.i was in so much pain i could barely walk.then for for some reason they left me unattended and i had to prop myself against a wall unattended.i was almost falling over.finally they got a room for me and started to do an ultrasound.the batteries in the unit were dead and there was some confusion as to where the batteries were and how to install the.the two nurses were laughin hysterically a bout this.then a doctor came in and told them to insert a catheter in me.this they did...none too gently.blood work was done which took forever.the doctor arrived about an hour later...started to talk to me...answered her cell phone and then left without a word.i asked nurse for painkillers...she never brought any.the doctor then appeared again and told me i had to keep the catheter in until nov2 when i had my urologist appt.i told her i simply couldnt do that.she said fine and ahalf hour later a nurse came and yanked it out.very painful the urine sprayed out...pee everywhere.she didnt assist clean up or get off bed.she left without a word.the doctor and nurses were very rude..abrupt and showed no compassion.I was in pain..scared out of my mind..they didnt care.in summary if you want to be treated like a lab rat then this is the place to go.

I almost died here in 2015. Avoid this hospital at all costs. I got a deadly blood infection 3 days after giving birth. We called an ambulance and the paramedic urged me to go to JB (later found out his wife works there so he wanted to take his break with her). There was only 1 ER doctor on staff so I was literally laying there dying on a bed in the hallway with my 3-year newborn beside me, while they saw many, many flu-symptom patients ahead of me. About 9 hours later, STILL without seeing a doctor, my vitals finally gave in and it was only then did a nurse finally take the matter into her own hands and gave me an antibiotic through IV, which saved my life. I was discharged later on. Days later the hospital contacted me with the blood test results saying it was a deadly blood infection. The wait time was horrendous. The cleanliness did NOT exist (my husband still talks about how there was bodily waste all over the wall and toilet of the washroom, nobody seemed honestly to care if you lived or died (except this one nurse). This was the very worst experience and normally I don't submit reviews but if this saves a life, even just one, it's well worth writing it. Go anywhere else but here.

Was at the new ER recently. Same long wait times, Drs discharge patients that are still sick and send some to out patient clinics or just send them home. . Anyone receiving iv' s sit together on chairs ( comfortable ones) but Drs discuss patients business in front of all of the other patients . No patient privacy. It is clean and spacious but it is other wise the same.
