I have gone to Grand River Hospital ever since I came to Waterloo but once in an emergency scenario I took an ambulance to St. Mary’s. I told the nurse that I was on blood thinners for a blood clotting disorder. I was short of breath, I could barely breath and I was having chest pain. I told the nurse all of this and she rudely shrugged me off and told me that she could smell the weed in my apartment and I was just high (my roommates were smoking weed). I waited in emerge for three hours barely breathing in panic with no one to help me. Eventually I got the strength to call my parents who demanded I get immediate attention. They told my mom that he can come up himself if he really needs medical attention. Eventually when I saw a doctor they said they would take an ultra-sound “just in case” anything was wrong...I had three blood clots in my lungs blocking my airways. Never again will I go to that hospital.
Poorly trained Doctors. They sent a profoundly depressed patient home without any kind treatment. And yes the patient did request to speak to someone several times and was left alone in a treatment room for hours with not one so called professional offering any kind of help or intervention .
I would rather die than going to this hospital Emergency room again . Doctor and nurses were rude... they don’t give you a chance to explain what happened... my little daughter notice how rude they are,even with kids... the doctor in ER that night used a high tone when he talked with me( he said I don’t know you or what happened) it was because i told the nurse I want to leave... they didnt offer to push my wheelchair and let my daughter do it... no way to go there again.
Could not wait to get my mother out of this place. Doctors and nurses would not communicate with you , halls are a mess , barely room for a chair in the small cramped stuffy room , Was in the elevator and doors open , in comes two carts of garbage , mother is in her home hospital now and has improved so much , The difference is like night and day
