Terrible experience - spent big millions to build & outfit. Computerized everywhere but I know computers - these were unbelievably difficult to use. What about folks not computer friendly!! Ring for nurse (on computer of course!) - one might show up 20-30 minutes later - supposedly listen to yr request - then leave - most times did not return. 99% immigrants - language barrier on both sides & lack of experience, got action if you screamed at the Nursing Station. My husband was admitted to Humber with a massive heart attack - no complaint re service as the Cardiologist was yelling orders (Code White) arranging transfer to Sunnybrook for critical heart surgery. Sunnybrook amazing but terribly overcrowded so he was transferred back to Humber to recuperate before more surgery 4 days later. He had certain restrictions I.e. not moving his arm, no bending & more! A family member has to be there to care for the patient - we had day shift & evening coverage. Had second surgery at Sunnybrook - after bumping for others more critical - recovery-settling him (confusion-agitation) - returned to Humber - all in a 15-1/2 hr period. Transferred 9:00am - returned 1:00am!!! I dropped over at Humber to ensure he was settled & ok. Spoke with nursing Station & stressed his requirements re meds-agitation-confusion. Yah yah - not to worry - he would be in hospital one more day to “observe & ensure he was ok. Left hospital 1:30am - just falling asleep, my confused husband calls to ask if I can go to Wallmart!!! Nicely asleep. 6:45am - husband calls - BEING DISCHARGED!!!!!!!!!}. Yes, doctor spoke with him - gave him prescriptions & general info- WHAT!! He hadn’t a clue😡. So then no nurse of any sort around - he can barely get dressed - NO BENDING- ha ha!! Got everything together - still no one anywhere to be found - so we leave. He is so halls empty! Start towards elevator - rests several times - get to main floor &spot a volunteer with an EMPTY WHEELCHAIR- beg can I have it, he cannotwalk!! Response “DID YOU BOOK IT?? - we are having trouble with wheelchairs!!!!! Why doesn’t Humber fix or better still, take all discharged patients in wheelchairs down to the pick up dock - like all other hospitals do?? Hope I never need the help of Humber Hospital ever again. Hope I get a survey to complete. Was told by a social worker that Humber has the worst patient care record - it’s the tops!! Yes, it sure takes the cake.
Went into emerg with family member who had stroke . He lay on gurney for 4 hours was not registered nor seen by anytone in emerg, He was dumped off by para medics and then then left to die on gurney in hallway..If you go to this hospital make sure you have family members with you. At least they will care and you will not die alone
Worst surgery process ever!!! Schedule day surgery and when you show up they say they cant help ypu, "didn't someone call you" is what the bytch at the pre surgery reception will ask. They will then leave you waiting 10 hours without any compassion whatsoever and finally tell you "oh sorry we can't operate on you so go home for a week" suffering in pain! Beware of th
Great service both in emerg and fracture clinic everyone one that I was in contact with was very nice and accommodating making sure I was comfortable. Fractured my tibia and dr.desai and his team were very nice and took great care of me. Fracture clinic is busy but they clearly do there best to keep the ball rolling also very nice. Best hospital experience I’ve had. No complaints other than the wheelchairs are like shopping carts and are very uncomfortable.
My grandma has been sick for a long time and everytime she went they would just give her pain meds and send her home. After about the 10th visit they actually took her in after my dad was stern with them and found she was full of abscesses that eventually burst. She is okay by the grace of God alone. You can build the fanciest and most high tech hospital you want but if you fill it with garbage staff who do NOT care about people, the hospital will always be garbage.
My mother was taken to ER because of massive bleeding. She was bleeding profusely and yet the staff did not care. Instead of a doctor, an intern was sent to look after her. It was a good thing that a good friend of ours came and she was tough. It was when she showed up that the staff started working on my mother. If you go to this hospital, you need to make sure that you can voice your opinion and you are tough. So many incompetent staff works here and the majority of them does NOT care about people. You could die waiting for help. Such a waste of space. Facility is nice but the staff ruins the experience for people. They should FIRE ALL STAFF and rehire new ones. This will raise the rating of this place. I would have given this place a zero rating if there is an option but I will settle for 1 star.
I was at emergency department on Tuesday at 1:00 am with my husband who is heart patient. We were so disappointed with the service. Nurses were slow and cranky. There was only one doctor for almost 100 people. I was so scared for my husband because he was sweating, vomiting and dizzy. I was running up and down to get nurses attention. Why government open this expensive hospital if they can not invest in more than one doctor. I would prefer a less fancy place with efficient staff and more working doctors available.
I waited 2 hours to be checked in, once I got to the desk the nurse sent to the zone I should be at and I waited another 2 hours until they realized I wasn’t even checked in the entire time, (nurse didn’t check me in don’t know why). Ihad to be placed at the end of the list. I was very upset and expected to be treated with care considering I was in pain for so long. Disappointed with the service. No other comments.
