Just came back after my wife's C-section as baby needed to admitted in Cheo after delivery we had have in this hospital. They make wife to have fasting & no water atleast 12 hours and for post operation care I have mixed feeling. found that mostly doctors are good but they visit you only once and we didnt had much chance to talk to them . you will deal with nurses all the time some were excellent but majority nurses in mother baby unit were not willing to help.My wife was keep crying beacsue of pain and every time here pain medication were delayd by atleast 1 hour every time even we have to remind them . Every nusrse has different answers for some basic question so i think they really dont know some basic things. Last day was horrible as nurse was pushing us to leave as soon as possible instead of giving to my wife oain medication even she was having severe pain. We had ask private room admission clerk said we will get it but after delivery we have been sent to semi private room even that was very small and we harldy has spaece to walk. our baby has to be admitted in cheo immediatly so we suppose to be in a room where no baby present so my wife do not feel awkward they maintain this status quo first day but in secind day they shifted other mothers & baby . i could see the pain in wife eyes. again there were plenty rooms were empty dont know why they had to fill up our room. I supect their are some thing phishi about room allocation . i would prefer not to go to this hospital unless i have no other option . Before the operation i have excellent experiance and found every one very compassionat . though one of our first nurse wasnt ale to administereat IV properly and leave my wife with a sore hand . and in night after operation nurses were using expired negative pressure to extrat blood from her hand and keep poking lot as they thought her vens dosn't have blood . thanks god they change the kit that workd.
Horrible, utterly horrible service. Blatant disregard for comfort and disregard for what matters to the patient. I was approached by no less than 11 different doctors who asked the EXACT SAME QUESTIONS every time (obviously there's little no communication between doctors) I was brought meals to my room which I couldnt/ wasn't allowed to eat. I have over 48 hours with absolutely ZERO food and only to cups of water (aside from the disgusting cocktails they forced me consume) I was switched rooms all of a sudden and was given the shit treatment after that!! Started by not transferring my tv to my new room so whomever took over my first room now enjoys free tv. The new bed was soaking wet, the sheets were dirty and stained and ACTUALLY had dry blood still very visible in chunks. I waited 2 days for 1 answer and was still left with unanswered questions. I PERSONALLY WILL NEVER EVER RETURN TO THE GENERAL
I recently had emergency gall bladder surgery at the General. Spent almost 2 months in hospital due to complications of gallstones that I had had. Nurses were fantastic! Surgeons were fantastic. Explained everything, came every day to check on me. Very, Very clean. Had to send cleaning lady away one day as she was cleaning while I was eating and it was making me ill with the smell of chemicals. Also had my daughter there by C-section. Most wonderful experience of my life! Great OB nurses who taught me lots. Service gets a 4 rating only because of 1 horrible nurse in OB and 1 horrible nurse in emergency for gall bladder post-op return due to extreme nausea. My favorite hospital in Ottawa.
I had to deliver my baby at the General hospital. Disgusting hospital. Unhealthy! Full garbage Staff arrive and leave with their work outfit: thanks forsharing the germs guys! My mother who works in European hospital was almost crying to see this durty place where there is no private room. Horrible experience.
The nursing and medical staff are wonderful for the most part. Generally very understanding and helpful. The residents are very good too. New emergency room facilities are much better now -- more waiting areas, cleaner, more comfortable. Overall an excellent hospital.
RUN AWAY. It's a teaching hospital and minions and clones are everywhere. If you have the misfortune to land there, demand NO STUDENTS. Otherwise your doctors visit is just a class for others. In my many visits over the years the Civic is the better campus, but they both are mostly useless. Oh and did I mention they killed my Father by administering a drug that was blatantly clear that he was allergic to not to mention that we reminded them numerous times before we left him for the night. He was dead by 5am.
