I had the worst experience here. I took pills in an attempt to kill myself. The doctors and nurses here didn't care and were like robots and blankly asked me if I'm gonna hurt myself and I said no.. they said okay your good then. How many suicidal and helpless hurt people not to mention sick are they going to let go... they acted so cold and rude and that's the last thing I wanted to feel after I had the intention to die. They also when I left she gave me back the pills I tried to kill myself with... disgusting. I feel horrible.
My father has been in hospital for six weeks now I can count on one hand how many times housekeeping has come and cleaned the room. There was a coffee stain on floor where he spilt his coffee that I looked at for five days before the floor was washed. The lobby is disgusting there is garbage everywhere having said that people should throw there garbage out there is garbage cans everywhere. The nurses have been great most of them compassionate and caring but they are always under staffed so sometimes you are waiting up to an hour to be changed. Also when you ring the call bell the person on desk will call for health care aid or nurse but they have no way of knowing if those people heard the page or not so you are left waiting long periods of time and have to keep pressing call bell. The elevators are always broke down . They also need to have somewhere else besides Tim Hortons to get food they have a cafeteria but it’s never open.
This is the worst hospital I have ever seen. The nurses give patients medications that are listed on file with allergies. The place is extremely dirty. The nurses abuse patients by shouting at them and roughness. More needs to be done to make public aware! Please stay away!!!!!
The emergency department is very poorly run and focuses more on the drug addicts that come in than the rest of the patients. Came in with a torn tendon probably ranked CTAS 3 Waited 8 hours, with no contact or visible staff, only to be seen by a first year resident PGY1 who awkwardly applied a splint, wasn't sure what he was doing and referred me to a plastics clinic. If I didn't need an X-ray to confirm that there was no fracture, I would have walked out. If the sisters were still involved, they would be appalled. Where is your mission of caring for everyone who comes through your door. We saw no visible sign of that mission.
I wasn't sure of this hospital at first when I first stayed at it for my Bariatric surgery. But I have to admit it the care is exceptional. Nurses were prompt and efficient taking care of me there. I am referring to the Nurses team on the 6th Floor. I am unsure of any other floors having bad nurses. These nurses went above and beyond. I would recommend them to anyone. The only thing I would says about the food there is I wish there was more drink options for non-diabetics on the Bariatrics floor (diet lemonade and Diet Peach was horrible, they should offer at least Diet Cranberry and maybe a Premier Protein over the Diabetic Resource Crap) (I got nausea on Diet Lemonade and Diabetic Resource which set me back in the hospital another 2 days longer) I loved how my surgeon and his team came to visit me daily as i was in the hospital. Appreciated that the most
