Worst emergency room I've ever been to..... horrible wait times, most of the nurses are rude and act like your opinion doesn't matter. And when you suggest something (like that I need to get bloodwork done for my uti because I ALWAYS get bloodwork done for it) they actually ask you what kind of test to do.. last night I came in because of a very painful uti. I waited 5 hours just to get into a room. When I got to my room the nurse told me I had to change into a gown, and when I asked her why she snapper back at me with this rude tone "because it's standard procedure.." if it was standard procedure for a patient with a uti I would have had to do it every time I come in which is pretty frequent for the same issue... also, when the Dr came in he asked me if I wanted Tylenol for the pain (that doesn't do anything for me anymore), and proceeded to write a prescription and sent me home. He didn't give me any antibiotics before I left, even tho it was late and I wouldn't be able to get the prescription for another half a day... by the time I could get it I was doubled over in pain making it impossible for me to drive to get the antibiotics....

Everytime I have been in any of the bathrooms, be it in the ER area, RAZ, or just general area, whether its mid-afternoon, late at night, in the mornings, it always reeks of urine to the point that Ive wondered if they have people cleaning them more then once a week. For an enviroment that should be as clean as possible for everyones health, how is it that these bathrooms cant be/arent cleaned more frequently and thouroughly?? I get that its a large place and hundreds of people are using the bathrooms daily, but since its eye-watering obvious that the current cleaning occurrences arent cutting it, hire more people. It doesnt take a University graduate to mop a floor or wipe down a sink and there are literally hundreds of unemployed people looking for work so how could it be anything other then a win-win?

My Family doctor accidentally didn,t put the milligrams on my prescription for pain medication.I am waiting to have a Spinal Fusion and am in constant pain due to issues with lower vertebrae.I went to Abbotsford emergency to have my regular prescription filled out properly"Easter Long Weekend".Dr Harold Wiebe approaches me and the first thing he say,s"Why are you on all the Dope?"I replied I don,t take "Dope" I am prescribed medicine for my back issues and I found it very unprofessional to refer to it like that.He said Do you want a prescription? Yes."Than shut your mouth"I hope no one else in an emergency goes for help only to be degraded and humiliated by this arrogant person.Of note he was wearing shorts and running shoes with no socks.Ask who you will be seeing and hope it is not Dr.Harold Wiebe.I will file a complaint with the College of Physicians next.He also appeared to me to be either drunk or feeling the effects of a night of over indulgence.

The cleaning staff (Sodexho) are either a few good ones, with many that do not clean. Room was not cleaned on a daily basis. The meals are unhealthy frozen food. Salad is pathetic to even call it salad. You have to have friends and family bring in food to you. Had to wait 4-5 days to get fluid drained from abdomen/chest as it is not considered a priority if your lung are unable to move and exchange air. Thank god for oxygen or I might not have made it. More beds needed. A new hospital should be able to handle the community population, which it is not able to do. Oncology dept. rooms should be single rooms, not shared rooms. What are they thinking when they did that. Nurses are usually awesome. Although some are inexperienced and need mentoring. Quit using LPN's and hire RN's, Provincial government!

I took my 10 month old son there and they did absolutely nothing for him... he's had heart surgeries so we have to be cautious when he gets sick so I brought him in when he had a fever (it was 37.5 when we got there but jumped to 39 within an hour of being there) and a cough and they acted like it was nothing. Made me wait for (only) a urine test becauae it took forever for him to pee and then told me his fever was from teething and sent me home... it's been 3 days since i had him in emerg and his fever and horrible cough still haven't gone down like they said it would (I should mention he's been like this for about a week and a half)... driving to chilliwack today to se our family doctor because abbotsford emerg doesn't know how to do their jobs...

I delivered my son here and was super impressed with the L&D team and the maternity ward!! They were very efficient at getting us into a room, all of which are private rooms, and before the nurse even saw me, they had the necessary bloodwork done. The nurses were very friendly and professional at the same time - took the time to introduce themselves so it wasn't just a room full of random "strangers" and my nurse wasn't afraid to offer what she thought might help me while in labour, even though my midwife was there as well. The team worked very efficiently. During my stay, whenever I needed something, even if just to ask a question, the nurses were all friendly and accommodating. Such a great experience! (And the cafeteria food is actually good :)
