I wish I could give less than one star. That is what this hospital deserves. My mother had back surgery and that went fine. When she was in the ICU CVICU to be exact Dr. Smith almost killed my mother because he has a huge ego. There were specific orders and precautions set forth and in place and he knew about her preexisting condition but he didn't bother to look at her contraindicated medication list before giving her a lethal medication. He then tried to blame my mother for this. My mother was in a coma and on a ventilator and swelled so badly her skin tore and she had wounds everywhere. It was the most horrific sight of my life and we thought we were going to lose her. I then had to babysit these doctors to make sure they were doing their jobs. Then they blackballed us and tried to bully us. They were specifically told our family needed to be there for every roundings and they systematically kept us out of them. When my mother pulled through and was weaned off the ventilator she was talking and obeying commands and they gave her contraindicated medication AGAIN!!! Unethical, uneducated, unprofessional, empathy lacking, bullying, sneaky and medically negligent,
Went to Emergency dept. Nurse at front was great. Other nurse (?) closed the door to the triage room and barked at 2 patients who came forward asking questions about wait time and how many people were before them. We all understand that these things could change - she could have answered the questions with qualifiers at least providing some understanding that patients and their families are concerned. Closing (and locking?) the door to the triage office was unacceptable! Nurses once you got inside were pleasant - although shift changed and then the new nurses didn't even identify themselves. The bigger problem was the doctor who didn't know my disease or medications. WOW! Perhaps they try a google search. The doctor was also manipulative and creepy. OHIP needs to stop paying the doctor's salary. Not a good value for tax payer's money.
Dirty floor blood stains on sheets. Nurses don't seem to care when hitting a call Bell. After waiting 45 minutes a nurse finally came. My iv was misplaced and sticking out of my arm horrible emergency department. Nurses that don't seem to care. Nursing station was right in front of me and they seem to be having a good time ignoring the call Bell. The ambulance service was good. So surprised this Hospital gets a failing grade. In fact I believe this Hospital needs to be looked into especially the emergency department their practices don't seem to be safe.
I came across your post and I must say I too have had a horrible experience with a neurologist by the name of dr. Jennifer Jain. You mentioned your foreseeing with a possible lawsuit I have to say you can include the hospital under that umbrella as well if they fell below the standard of care. This neurologist I believe is moving her practice not sure but you may want to look into this to let your attorney know I think you mentioned in your last post she can't run from your attorney. My experience with the hospital was pleasant however my experience with this particular doctor was not you're right about malpractice and misdiagnosed me. Other than that parking is expensive hospital food is undesirable nurses have somewhat a good attitude. Hey I may join you in regards to your lawsuit against the hospital and dr. Jennifer Jain. From Sunnybrook Hospital Miss diagnosing my mother. If the premier of Ontario is reading this post please investigate the Mother's Day ology department at Sunnybrook Hospital a lot of Miss diagnosing is going on.
Hospital rooms were very dirty I have photos I especially want to see if you have a loved one being seen by a neurologist called Jennifer Jain. Be extra careful with this neurologist get a second opinion we are in the process of filing a lawsuit against her. The College of physician is going to be sued as well as this doctor please use extra care when seeing this neurologist. She should have her license taken away for malpractice. She may be able to run but she's not going to hide for my attorney.
We took my mother-in-law to emerg. August 30. By the early morning of Aug. 31 she was admitted. While we were there for a very long time, we were treated with good care and compassion. In fact, a nurse named Mohammed realized she'd been in a wheel chair far too long and managed to grab a stretcher for her so she could lie down finally. She was in the main building until a formal diagnosis was confirmed and then she was moved to Palliative Care. The whole team, Dr. D. Selby, Lori her main nurse and the other nurses we absolutely wonderful to deal with. Their compassion was welcomed and they were wonderful with all of us. Outstanding palliative care.
This was our experience from start to finish, which would be difficult for a healthy person, nevermind someone with a serious chronic ilness: 1) dangerous traffic situation outside of the hospital 2) 3 minute visit with the doctor without questions answered and without respect and with no follow up plan. I left the floor not knowing what had happened. I would recommend having family or a friend by your side at all times and to tape any appointments and to know your medical history inside and out 3) difficulty obtaining my medical records (30 dollar fee which is cash only and must be exact amount with no receipt given) 4) difficult to operate parking machine and outrageously priced parking. What we have is a doctor-centred system and change is urgently needed. Where is all the money going?
All of the nurses and hospital staff I associated with today were unbelievably heartless people with no empathy for the fact that my wife was undergoing surgery for cancer today. They accidentally put her name on the "surgery" electronic board an hour after she went to recovery, making me think she was sent back under the knife for an emergency. When I questioned this and was told it was a mistake the nurses looked at me like I was an idiot for being so concerned. I waited hours (over 5) with no updates or information on my wife, and any time I asked a worker for an update I was given snarky frustrated responses. I would not ever recommend this hospital to anyone and I will not return to this hospital for any reason. I will never understand why you would work in a hospital if you don't have any care of empathy for other people. I'm truly sickened after my experience today.
I went in to this hospital with 39.00 fever and was told in emergency that it was probably pneumonia, until a doctor asked me where I was from and I told him where I was from and after diagnosing me with pneumonia he decided since I was from this country then I should be considered for TB testing, but I said I have'n't been there for years, they still said it could be latent in my body! I saw how silly and infantile this yellow team was headed by David Jurulunk who was media appearances on TV. They confined me for seven days and I was depressed. Finally they lifted the confinement and said I had no TB!!! Which I knew very well, because to Canada 40 years ago I was checked head to toe! This team never appologized for their grave mistakes. They upset all my family and had constant chest pains. This place is run by students that are misinformed and whether they know it or not they discriminated against my background.
