Was taken there in February by Ambulance with serious respiratory problem. They sent me home after a cursory examination. 3 days later I took a cab to Toronto General and was treated for COPD. Toronto General kept me in their ER for a day to receive needs treatment which helped. When I was sent home from St. Joe's I felt I was going to die. After an appointment yesterday at Toronto General I have a very grave provisional diagnosis. I am a former Registered Nurse. Had I believed St. Joe's was justified in sending me home with no treatment I would be dead. Under no circumstance should anybody go there without a witness. If I ever end up there by ambulance again I will have prearranged a way to publicize my visit and share.
This incident happened to me a few years ago, but I feel compelled to share my experience. I went to see a doctor because I had my period twice in one month. I was stressed out and worried something was wrong as I was always regular. I waited for 5 HOURS to finally see a doctor. He was an older Asian man with a short temper. He basically said I was wasting his time, and shouted at me about my period. This all happened near the waiting area inside the emergency clinic (through the doors of the main area), the room we were in was just partitioned with a curtain. I've never felt more ashamed and embarrassed in my life. The doctor made me feel like a burden. Do not go to this hospital for any emergency - St. Michael's is much better. 5 - 8 hour wait times are COMMON.
This is truly the worse hospital, the doctor didn’t want to come and tell me what was going on with my father, she told three separate people for me to ask another family member before I went looking for her and then when I explained why I needed to hear it from her, she promised to post it on the board moving forward which had a date from two days ago, if there is information to be given out they should tell a date and time so everyone can have an opportunity to hear it and ask questions. I had two family member pass from this hospital one they gave an overdose of morphine which put them in a coma and have the board come talk and explain their mistake, so when I had to call 911 my father had no choice but this hospital making my family hate me, since they poorly help my two family member prior.
I agree all other parts of this hospital are horrible but the maternity ward at this hospital is heaven on earth. The staff is so friendly and warming. The rooms are clean and big. The nurses are attentive and caring and provide a lot of guidance. Had the best birthing experience possible here . Also my baby was sick and we were referred to the kids clinic there which is also amazing they care so much there. I will def have my second baby here.
went there a few days ago with the dehydration in my 8 week of pregnancy- my mistake going as a pregnant woman to the emerg at 8pm.. apparently that one of the busiest times.. but I probably had no choice as my condition worsened and maternity ward would have not taken me...the admin staff were heard mostly discussing amongst each other who goes on break next!!but who was horrible was the doctor himself, extremely arrogant..kept reminding me that he was the chief of the emerg department-well lucky ME!! and it seemed like he kept mocking me... I asked for a place to lie down - and after asking and begging at least 20 times ..I got a stretcher in the hallway.. and watched as another mental homeless person just took a spare bed and made it her place for the night. ..no doubt she needed it more than me.. finally got attended to by a nice nurse who helped get my tests and results done etc.. I was finally home at 3am!
