I have been brought in twice due to the lack of mobility in my lower legs. The first time I wanted to know why my lower legs were numb and I couldn't walk properly, and when I fall or loose my balance. Why my muscle in my legs keep knotting up on me. After 6 hrs I was given a prescription for muscle relaxer. Second time I was brought in I was transferred from the gurney to chair and sat in the ER with my ankle and knees bleeding waiting to see a doctor from 10PM till 6:30AM. Without seeing anyone, I had to ask another person in the waiting room to give me a hand to hobble to the bathroom after a the nurse I asked told me to wait 5 Mins. I left never seeing a doctor, as I had to get home to be there for my daughter.
I arrived in quick time by the paramedidics.. with multiple injuries. They did xrayed then went with the ct scan. I think they should had just done the ct scan first and fore most. I was cared for well with one exception. They kept me laying on the wooden backboard with a neck brace basically all day until I went in for back surgery. When I met Dr. Moammer he could not believe they made me suffer on the hard back board and the neck brace on even though they both could have been removed about 6 hours prior. He removed it himself. Did thoroughly good job! Both before, during and after the surgery. Cherrs to you team!!!
I have really bad health anxiety after some of my experiences at Grand River. I have had a referral lost, an abnormal mri that was not communicated to me and experienced terrible treatment from some staff who just didn't care. While admitted, was unable to stand up or feed myself. Only one nurse over 4 days offered to help me. I had to wait for my mom to visit in order to get any assistance. I was kept up all night by the loud nurses basically having a party at the nurses' station, sharing personal stories with each other loudly which I didn't care to hear ALL night. I ended up asking to go home as I was just getting worse there. I will say that I had an amazing doctor and ER in the emerg but this was after I slipped and fell on a spilled drink that had been left on the bathroom floor. I also have nothing but amazing things to say about the labour and delivery staff as well as the NICU doctors and nurses. It is unfortunate that some staff really bring this hospital down when others really do care and are competent.
The Doctors and especially the nurses on the cancer care ward were very professional caring and compassionate despite being overloaded with too many patients?The one important issue I did have was doctors decision for benevolent deception treatment protocol.They didn't have the heart or stomach to tell the truth regarding my loved ones hopeless condition.They kept giving me hope for a better result when they knew there was no hope for any recovery.This I found very difficult to handle emotionally
Taken to ER - first time I've been to this hospital and I hope I never go back. The ER department is overburdened and therefore chaotic. There is a definite lack of cleanliness at the facility and that needs to be corrected immediately. The bathroom was disgusting and very few times did I see the sheets be changed between patients on the emergency beds. The ER doctor was good but the nurses were overworked. It was the lack of cleanliness that was most disturbing.
Nurses are extremely rude and insensitive to patients needs and pain, asking to see my dr he won’t show up tell I go to his office , they don’t give u medicine on time , dirty and such bad food you won’t be able to smell it . Sharing rooms with people suppose to be in single rooms especially when they ware dipper . Unbelievable Ignoring for patients
Nurses are extremely rude and insensitive to patients needs and pain, extremely long waits hours range between 4-7 hrs. I saw a nurse shushing a patients who was experiencing pain and another nurse asking a mother to remove her toddler (patient)from a stretcher because nurse needs it. don't go there avoid this hospital until it is closed or our complaints is heard by responsible people. I hope all of the staff get fired and be substituted with more experienced , knowledgeable staff.
