I'm not sure about the previous reviews. I was hoping to rate MD on the doc that took care of my little guy the other day.. he was phenomenal. I am a RN myself so I understand the wait time... I feel it's important for people to understand that the ER can take a long time, especially when your child's condition is stable... there could be others behind another door that are not so lucky. As hard as it is as a parent when you are worried about your own child let's not forget it is a trauma center for many little ones in the region and there will be longer wait times, but the team really does want to do everything they can to help your child, even if it's minor. Dr Tage? I believe it was... first name was John. He was excellent in reassuring me and my grandmother about my sons condition, he took the time and proper steps that needed to be taken in that moment. My sons care will be followed up thanks to the referral they made and hopefully it will turn out to be something minor; however, the doctors took the appropriate steps to aid in his care and did what they could. I understand sometimes it's tough when it's your child and you hope for them to leave feeling better or all of the answers... but this isn't always realistic and it's okay to feel uneasy but they do an exceptional job helping with the immediate care and send you on to follow up with not so emergent needs. It's not a 5 star hotel we're talking about here, it's a hospital.. where they save lives and do whatever they can to aid in appropriate care at that time for your child.
Came in with my 2year old that had a rash on his leg and fever. One triage nurse placed a note saying chicken pox on his chart so we were quarantined. A doctor came in checked him and said that it wasn't chicken pox (we knew it wasnt)and swabbed his skin, but wanted another doctor to come and check him. That doctor refused to come in (said he had a newborn at home and didnt want to risk it)and sent a nurse to take pictures of my child for him to assets outside of the room. The 1st doctor came back in and said tgey agree its not chicken pox but gave me a prescription to give him for the symptoms. Not even 12hrs later I'm back cause the medication has him throwing up and his temperature is now at 40°c. Seen another 2 doctors here that rules out chicken pox yet again but demanded we stop givingbth medication previously prescribed as it will make him worst. They have now said it's a rare viral infection that my child has and not worth checking his blood.
Friends were not very happy with the nurses or doctors. They feel they are above you, and if I could have mentioned a few, I would, but have been silenced on this. Credentials are nothing, people are somebody, not a piece of paper that isn't worth it. Oct.21st, Saturday, 2017, 10:45 am. Thank you very much for upsetting my friends who have a child at that hospital.
Filthy, no toilet paper in bathrooms. Nurse was very nice, the doctor was a complete jerk. My son needed stitches in his head and refused to check for concussion. Asked if he has pain in his neck that was it. Get it together. TV's are great for the kids when they actually work.
It was the worst experience for my family with a 2 month old that was admitted. From the inexperience of staff, to the services, not pleased. We were in red 3C. Even paid for a private room that we couldn't even use the bathroom facilities to our baby crying her eyes out from nurses being rough. Never again!!!!
This place makes you wonder if your baby is learning tool for the new nurses and doctors. My baby has be misdiagnosed so many times has been Thur so much in such a small amount of time .the lack of knowledge the doctors and no communication between them one would suggest something then the next one it's totally something else. They pump medications into the babies for no reason . The nurses overall have been nice . So many parents feel missed informed and treated it's a shame because you want only what's best for your baby they think you got a mental health issue . Think twice about going to this hospital
This is a disgrace for a children's hospital the lack of knowledge from the nurses and doctors is pathetic. My little boy was here for almost a week from jaundice. It could of been prevent from the start instead it was dragged out till he needed to be put in a incubator . I could of prevented it if I did my research in the Start.jaundice is easy to clean out if your baby keeps and a good feeding through out the day wether it's formula or breast .the doctor told us to lay off on the formula and try to stick with breast feeding evben though they new he had high counts of jaundice . After day 3 I started to do my research and figured out the only way to lower the jaundice counts is for the baby to constantly go to the bathroom to help clean his system out. After day 3 when they said it's still climbing I told them I'm adding the formula to his diet again. The moms milk was not high enough to fully feed out little man. To have regular pee and poo . So now he has been in an incubator for 24 hours this fucing place does not even have the right equipment to protect his eyes from the lighting . The nurses even said the same this we're sorry but this is all we have. I check online once again and there ls 100s of different types so of course this hospitial had the cheapest as possible so what does my $270 a night pay for ? That should of only been here 2 nights now a week. have a child is supposed to be the best few days of your life this disgraceful hospital has made it pretty rough few days of our lives watching our baby cry for 16 hours of the day and nothing we could do.and this hospital is only Set up for the mother to stay comfortable here nothing for the dad at all so my entire week here I have slept 15 hours just so the mom can get her well deserved rest. How is it that an automotive painter has more experience figuring out what to do they the actual employees of mc master children's hospital ?
I had worse experience ever after having my baby this hospital is good when there is no complications but when there is problems no person with experience appears till you have to fight to get the help. I think Canada has big problems with how to keep good Dr.s this needs to get fixed all over the country not just McMaster kids hospital
