They say there is stigma with mental health pt, well let's clarify something. The psych liaison in emergency has the biggest biases! Everyone is a PD, even it a person has a personality disorder they deserve respect and care like everyone else. Don't make fun of them right where everyone else can hear!

Absolutely the worst hospital ever. Wait times are some of the longest I've ever been too and a clearly inattentive staff. Most of them look like they should be patience not staff.
This hospital needs to be shut down or have a sever overhaul in its practices and staff.

Went to the hospital was diagnosed with possible phenomia. The doctor ran all kinds of tests...then gave me the wrong perception with someone else's name on it. Then I had to go back and wait a ridiculous amount of time the next day for them to fix it. DANGEROUS PLACE TO GO!

Worst hospital I have ever seen they send patients home too soon and doctors do not diagnose properly

DO NOT GO TO THIS HOSPITAL. Please heed this warning, that is if you value your life. If you must go to waste your valuable time sitting in a emergency waiting room, please spend the extra gas and travel to Eagle Ridge or Lions Gate. It appears that Ridge Meadows is the dumping ground for all the malcontented staff who hate their jobs and the patients that they are paid to treat. I feel sorry for any patients that don't have a choice of hospital and are forced to go to this hospital.

I would rather suffer @ home than go to this Emergency Dept.I went about 6 years ago after suffering @ home with shortness of breath for 2 months over a hot summer. That male triage nurse listened to my chest and said " your chest sounds better than mine." I was later diagnosed by a chest specialist with C.O.P.D. and asthma and put on daily puffers. I went in a few months ago with some shortness of breath and that same triage nurse said to me, " what's a well looking patient like you coming to Emergency for." I was a nurse for 37 yrs. & I was an Emerg. nurse for 15 of those years. I never treated patients like that. Their cleanliness is scary. I've seen the nurses pull down the paper on one of those examination table beds and not wipe it. I've been asked to lie down on one of those tables with the paper all wrinkled from the patient B/4 and therefore tore away the used part myself. I remember the time I was given an inhaler that connects to the wall outlet. The nurse somehow spilt half of the medication on me and left me with less than half of a nebulizer to inhale. Depriving me of a proper treatment & the dosage the Dr. ordered. It was that 2nd encounter with that triage nurse that I had fever,chills,cough ---Ii asked my nurse on my way to x-ray if i could have my temperature done again as I could feel myself burning up.Realizing that was not a good time, I said , "when I come back from X-ray." When I came back & asked she said," can't you see---I'm in the middle of doing 6 things right now." When I got home I took my temp. & it was 39.3. It was in the middle of the night & I had no meds. @ home to help me lower my fever as I never had elevated temperatures. I used to come in with severe back pain. I would wait it out @ home for 2 wks., then finally go to Emerg. out of desperation. I won't mention some of the rude nursing staff, but will save it all for the Doctor. One Dr. really took 'a shine to me and diagnosed me as a drug abuser. After that they wanted urine samples (drug screening) whenever I came in and gave me a minute amount of some ridiculous drug that was supposed to help me. I gave up. I was later diagnosed @ The Jim Patterson Pain Clinic with Myofascial Pain Syndrome.

Old, dirty looking, patient rooms seem decorated by the Salvation Army. Given a choice I would never go there. The 4 chairs in our room were all mismatched, 2 of 4 patient tables were broken and every curtain in the room was torn to threads and stained. There were hand and finger prints and smeared everywhere, the floor was really awful and the washroom reeked of urine. Our veterinarian clinic/hospital was palatial compared and much cleaner. And no pee smell either.
