I went to st joes suicidal and sleep deprived. A nurse pulled my pants down in front of some nursing students while I was having a break down. Then the hospital put me in seclusion and then judged my behaviour while locking me in a room with a light beamed in my face and no toilet or running water. They force fed me medications while I was in here and informed me I wouldn’t be let out until I took them. They would often lie to me and gave me disgusting food that I did not like. This hospital needs to be investigated as soon as possible
I took my elderly family member here to urgent care due to severe pain ect.,took a number. Waited 1 1/2 hrs. for triage nurse, then another 1 for the Dr.! Musical chairs as you move from one waiting area to the next. What in heavens name has happened to health care of the elderly and all patients. While waiting in one area I another patient was coughing severly , all over next to me, sounded like severe Bronchitis or even Pneumonia, no mask, she was not well! How many people did she cough on while she was there! Dr. Said he will need a blood and urine sample. Patient finally got a section with curtains, not a room . Patient in terrible pain finally after 5 or more hrs. given meds. No nurse came to see if meds were even working. How can an elderly patient pee if no water has been given and has not been well for days before. No cup given to pee in. The Dr came by to ask if the patient gave a pee sample, I said nooo, she needs water to pee. "I will be back with the water , I need that sample "!. NO! Never came with the water orbottle to pee in., I had to go to Tim Hortons and buy water. "Where is the pee sample"! The patient cannot go. Hello! The patient came for severe flank pain! The nurse that did the blood test was horrible, I watched as a bubble of blood bled out in her hand. " Oh, I guess there will be bruising "! Another male nurse came to put an IV in for fluid and contrast. Checked for veins, felt around, got frustrated could not find vein and so did not put the IV in. CT scan without contrast, for severe flank pain on elderly patient. Patient could not give urine sample so a technician checked bladder. No real diagnoses was given . Could not find cause of pain. Just follow up with family Dr. Total of 8 hrs. Horrible!
The staff in the ER is fantastic. The psychiatric follow-up, however, is pathetic. My son, who attempted suicide, has been waiting over 4 weeks for a follow-up appointment with a psychiatrist. I can't even get anybody to answer the phone at St. Josephs. If my son had presented with a broken leg, it would have been taken care of within hours in ER. But he presented with a serious mental health issue. Could be life and death. But no follow-up. For all of the "let's talk" hoopla, the system is a massive let down for those who truly need it.
the staff give you placebos and then shoot up the patients meds. a nurse couldn't find my vein to take blood tests and he got frustrated and started stabbing me-- i showed other nurses my arm after he attacked me and he told them i was a junkie and i did that to myself :( same nurse then grabbed my arm and dragged me to another room and pushed me onto a chair which fell backwards. other patients helped me up. i don't know his name but he appeared to be asian. then there was a guy with a bandana, the one who was hit by a bus and dresses like a hippie, he picked up somebody's wheelchair and threw it and broke it. then i saw him yank a curtain down so hard he just broke the rod in half. also, another nurse named Pearl told me i annoyed her.. after i told her i was feeling like i was ready to kill myself.
