Avoid this place at all costs. Misdiagnosed my kidneys stones twice in a row and made me feel like I was going crazy. Ended up going to Markham hospital and they diagnosed me right away and I got the proper medical care... after waiting it out for 2 months and passing a large kidney stone with no pain medication. Ruined 2 months of my life. I will only go to Markham hospital from now on. Worth the extra trip. The urologist I saw after saw the ultrasound, MRI and x-ray Oshawa took and saw the stone in every one. Doctors are overrun with patients and aren’t able to do their jobs properly.
Oshawa Lakeridge is one of the best hospitals in the G.T.A. I recently broke my ankle and after going to the emergency dept. I was given an appointment the next day to see a surgeon to insert a plate to help the healing process. The surgeon made arrangements for me to be added to the operating room schedule the following day.(Friday). The follow up appointments were all very professionally taken care of, bearing in mind that there are always more urgent procedures that have more priority. Thank you to all the staff.
Well I don’t know where to begin.....listening to the only male nurse ,who couldn’t stop sniffing the entire time I was there, make fun of all the patients that he assumed were sleeping. Last time I checked...... attemptted suicide wasn’t really funny. Maybe he is angry he only owns navy scrubs. Or maybe annoyed that a fellow nurse wouldn’t stop screaming that a patient was going to kill her. It’s a great way to get a dr to give a patient meds so they will sleep, right?! Disgusted! Health care? I dont think so
Nurses here are absolutely horrible, never seen such rude ignorant people in my life, go work at a call centre if you want to complain and not do anything to help anyone at all, fire all the horrible nurses, take a look a how they treat sick dying people, my nurse wouldn’t give me another puke bag while mine was falling apart from puking in it so much, eventually another nurse was kind enough to bring me one
My daughter broke her shoulder Friday night. She went to both Bowmanville Hospital and Oshawa . She was scared and in absolute agony. She was treated rudely, her questions sluffed off by a extremely rude and uncaring Dr’s and told a broken shoulder wasn’t that bad and she didn’t need anything for pain cause they don’t just hand out narcotics. My daughter has NEVER been to the hospital for narcotics and if you can’t go to the hospital for help ,where exactly do you go! Maybe if they did treat pain properly when people came to them for help so many people won’t be dying from overdoses because they were forced onto the streets etc...because they are suffering! I will never donate money or time to this disgraceful conglomerate. I will be reporting my experience to any one who will listen and hopefully someday someone will
Horrible staff, horrible service! Unfortunately, my health is not well and I have been to many hospitals from the west end of Toronto to Oshawa. At least 10 hospitals in my 50plus years and Oshawa is the worst from the ER to being put in a room with the nurses that act like bullies. The ER is terrible, from the x-ray department to a simple blood test. Never mind getting to the ER at 4 pm with problems and finally seeing the ER doctor to be told the ultrasound person left at 7pm and can't help you. ER suppose to have an emergency ultrasound machine the doctors can use in an emergency my family DR has told me. They told me nope sent me home internally bleeding! Almost died! Unfortunately, I live near this hospital and ambulance bring me there. I now take uber to Centennial hospital and spend the money. Well worth to be treated like a person than an animal. Oshawa says there trying to improve their patient treatment but the staff won't unless something done seriously. Have the CEO pretend to be a patient and he will be so surpissed how he/she is treated. Best would be from ER to put in a room and see how the nurses treat him. Brutal! I have been treated badly hear many times to hearing other ppl with nightmare stories too! Cleanliness horrible too. I was put in a room for 13 days and not once did staff come in there to clean the bathroom and when I was well enough to have a shower I got athletes foot. I have proof on everything I am saying here too. Have the CEO contact me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This place is an absolute joke. NO ONE AND I MEAN NO ONE seems to care enough to look into the uncaring rude nurses in the ER. I've had my mother there at least 5 times by ambulance and they have the loser security guards bully her and rough her up because she doesn't cooperate... She has dementia and frequent uti. She has had multiple bruising that is always blamed on her. The paramedics made a comment what is it this time on the last time I called to take her in. When I arrived at hospital my mother who was very confused was sitting in a general waiting area. As soon as I got there they told me I had to look after her so she wouldn't wander away even though that was the very reason I had her taken there was that I couldn't watch her. A nurse told me that I was abusing the emergency system and was extremely rude... they said they wouldn't watch her and I had to take her home... she is in again and after 3 days of her being restrained in a bed in a stinky loud ER she was moved... They tag her with dementia and call the loser guards if she gets confused... they come and rough her up and feel pretty good about themselves that 3 or 4 of them can rough up an 81 year old lady.... Zero compassion... Zero care... just an awful place and again nothing ever gets done to change any of it... over bearing ignorant lazy and just plain unhappy staff for the most part in the ER. I guess they can't understand or just don't care that these folks are our loved ones that we have no choice but to try to get help for them...
