My brother got brought there, He's been waiting since about 11:30 last night. In a lot of pain, only pain meds given were by the paramedics when they started taking him over. Spent over 5 hours or so waiting only to find out they discharged him at 6AM with no one seeing him or talking to him to let him know. Then when they found out no one saw him, They redid his paper work ( They didn't know what happened to the originals) and asked him to wait all over again.

I have been to this hospital twice for surgery and both times.it has.been abysmal. My first time they put me in a rokm with a dementia patient who was up all night voiding in the garbage cans.
Tonight, in recovering from another surgery, its about a quarter to 12 am and the bed next to me is swarming with visitors all of whom are talking loudly. The nurses ignored my call bell.for about a half an hour and when they finally came to my bed they asked, "is there a problem!?" I said yes and asked when visiting hours were supposed to end. The nurse said that they knew it was noisy and that there were a lot of people in the room.
When the patient and enterage returned to the room about midnight, the nurse advised them that the man in the other bes (me) couldnt sleep and.adked of only one.or two visitors could stay and talk to him all night?
Absolutely the worst hospital ive ever been to
Part of recovery is sleep and you wont get any at the U of A.

I will never again, voluntarily go to this hospital for anything. They have no concept of what it means for a patient to "rest". Their infrastructure resembles that of a feedlot. Line em up, push em through, and get em out. I am so disappointed with this facility.

My Mom needed bllod so we went to U of A emergency. The wait was longer than some other hospitals but in the end was well worth it. My mom got her blood and we got out of Emergency at 2.30 am. Parking was well over $60. The emergency doctor Dr Jan and Dr Amo were fantastic. They thoroughly review my mothers medical history and recommended that she get a colonoscopy. They called at 730 am that morning and scheduled a colonoscopy the following day. Dr Vivian Huang was fantastic. Found a cancer in my moms colon and immediately called Surgery. They responded in great time. Dr Scobeny a resident was very professional and we did not know that he was a resident until much later. 2 days and many test later Dr David Williams performed the surgery. Dr Williams is a very professional and yet kind good humoured man who dealt professionally and compassionately with my 80 year old mother. The surgery was a success and my mom is recovering. My tax bill is not a big deal after this. Thank goodness we live in Canada in Edmonton in Alberta. I will help find raise for U of A hospital from now. Also in case anyone reading this is waiting to get care from U of A hospital. Dont worry... you are in a world class facility and you will be ok.

My mother is usually very impatient and gets fed up with hospital extremely quickly but today I think that changes quite a bit. The nurse in charge of helping her was so incredible. The other nurses are also amazing everyone was a huge help. Other than the initial wait to get help everything went so smoothly. Thank you so much to everyone in Emergency for being so helpful and just great at your jobs.

My doctor works only at U. She's the best.
U of A hospital is the best too. Complex surgery, major emergencies belong at the U. Dog bites, banged toes...go to any doctor. We've been referred to Emergency and haven't waited for more than a few minutes. If its a real emergency, you'll be seen and cared for rapidly. If not you wait. If you're waiting...rethink where you should be!

My husband and I have been patients in here. Some units are def. better than others. Surgery units are great, medical units not so much. It seens that the nurses are more available and more pleasant than in the past. Hope so!
