I went there to get my heart checked because I get occasional disturbances and heart attacks. The first thing I noticed is the large amount of police presence which makes going to check yourself for a simple visit afraid. When I went there, the receptionist was asking me questions that I believe are too personal to provide to an institution that can easily provide them to other external institutions without the person knowing (I am not saying that they would ever do so). Instead of simply asking me for an emergency contact number, they also asked for my mother's name with a smile and a smirk (if anyone threatened my mom or ever caused her pain physically, spiritually, or whatever form I assure you it would hell on earth). They also asked me what is my religion (I am christian orthodox /agnostic) but I respect all points of view as we live in a free country but being the sensitive person that i am i decided to simply tell them my religion is to do good things and that is it. Now, my girlfriend who is a nurse noticed the problems I had with my heart and started crying because she said your heart could stop at a brief moment and you would die instantly. When I went the people were working there did not seem to care. If you are going to work in the medical field you have to care about saving lives and actually helping them. The person who did the blood work just did not care and the male nurse who told me the results did not even put his name on the paper work and was asking me questions like are you on cocaine (i have never ever taken cocaine and i would never, i used be a cigarette smoker but quit 10 years ago). This nurse brushed me off to the side as if i had nothing and told me my level for heart attack was at 1.5/7 which in my opinions still needs to be properly checked because if i was a nurse i would try to catch something even at 0,1 percent. I agree that universal health care is important for all of us but when you pay money for health care professionals that do not care about saving you and everyone they serve regardless of whether you like the person you are serving or not than you should have to pay money in order to keep these services working. There are better hospitals out there that actually care about people and saving lives. I believe that those hospitals deserve all our money because they truly save lives. You can be the greatest doctor or the greatest nurse but if you do not care and you brush off people's health like I see what has happened to some of the people in the reviews than you are not a good nurse, a good doctor, or a good hospital. People deserve good health care for their children, brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, and so on regardless of their race, religion, occupation, and so on.
We took my dad (58) to the ER for chest pain, he had heart failure and a prior heart attack, the ER dr was clearly in a hurry to leave or something because he rushed my dad out and said he was fine. He suffered a cardiac arrest the next day and is now dead. This hospital killed him.
We arrived at this hospital by car when my daughter (13) was in anaphylactic shock. While we where driving she was experiencing vomiting, itchiness and etc. We had no idea we needed to use the epipen since we hadn’t seen an allergist is years. Anyways we arrive at the ER here and are triaged by a nurse who obviously knew nothing about allergic reactions, basically said you’re not having trouble breathing so whatever. We waiting 2 hours and during that time my daughter started wheezing a lot and could barely talk. We finally saw Dr Rhee who was like yeah this is a severe reaction but yet still didn’t use an epipen??? We obviously had no idea that he was wrong but then proceeded to prescribe things that would treat each individual symptom instead of the EPI. Inhaler for wheezing, Benadryl for rash and flushing, Zofran for vomiting and prednisone for wheezing and stomach swelling. Again completely wrong treatment, we spoke to our allergist who was absolutely outraged we didn’t get the epipen as soon as we spoke to the triage nurse and weren’t seen right away. We where there from 8:30pm to 1:30am. I would avoid if you have severe allergies.
I cannot believe this hospital is allowed to still operate. My mother died at the age of 49 because chameleon doctor and alleged surgeon, Dr Deitel, refused to give her follow up chemo and radiation for her breast cancer. In his arrogant words "he got it all' during her surgery, even though the protocol was chemo&radiation. My father had orders throughout his illness with Toronto ambulance that at all costs if he was able to bypass this hellhole of death, they would take him to TGH or Mount Sinai where they have interests in keeping you alive. When he died in 2o16 they had to take him to this hospital because of his illness level. The ER doc was good, after that they bounced him around from ICU and then out of ICUto a non critical care cardiac unit to free up a bed. Because they didn't know how to care for someone with CHF and COPD and kidney failure, so they just threw their hands up in the air and sent him down in care to a unit that 2 nurses covered 12 patients. He went thru alot if discomfort and panic at nightime because his heart was in significant arrhythmias and there was no nurse to watch the screens at the nurses station when the alarms went off. I had to yell for them and then ask WHY a dr wasnt being called to order medication. The cardiac unit is like a tiny little suffocating box on a floor that is so archaic half the lights in another part of the wing were out in the hallway, while we watched nurses trying to make their way in the darkness to respond to a code blue. The level of care in this hospital is horrible. Avoid at all costs if you want to live, and make sure your sick family members have people to advocate for them to live or they will leave you rotting somewhere until you checkout.
The nurses were incredibly uncaring and downright nasty. I vomited after my surgery and needed the room cleaned and the nurses were all at the desk which was just outside my room and talking and looking , complaining loudly about the odor and one even chastised me for vomiting in the garbage can which was the closest receptacle. Not one nurse came to check on me or call housekeeping. i was clearly not ready to be released and thankfully a family member came by. Perhaps they should find another profession where empathy isn't required.
9 hours , 6 hours went by with sufferring from kidney stone pain waiting to see a doctor to get some hydromorphone injected, at the end couldnt wait any longer with pain , forbthe doctor to see me and prescribe some painkiller and left . Full of nurses walking around and none cares .
