Ratings for Ridge Meadows Hospital
Did not have a pleasant experience here the other night starting from the ambulance ride! Inconsiderate paramedics and RUDE nurses. I couldn't walk and just wanted to lay down and they could have cared less. The nurse was extremely rude and they made me feel very unwelcomed. The only pleasant person was the doctor who I finally got to see after a long wait. If it wasn't an emergency I would never choose Ridge Meadows. Awful experience. The nurse really needs to give her head a shake.

I've been to quite a few hospitals in greater Vancouver and MRH stands as one of the best. Their staff, though busy at times, have always been caring, knowledgeable and understanding. What I found hard to believe was that their food was really hospital food because it was the best I've ever had in GVR.
Thanks to all the people that make this hospital top notch.

Basically, the biggest thing is the pay parking. You walk in and have no idea how long emerg is going to take and that is a stress - and expensive! I spent $5 for a 15 minute trip to get a shot for my daughter!
I have had a balance of positive and negative experiences in the ER. Positive was how they treated my daughter twice and negative was a nurse laying out to me what a beloved great aunt was going to go through post-stroke on her way to dying. I was crushed! Ironically, I saw that nurse at the hospice when I visited the aunt while she was dying. She knew her stuff but it was painful to load that onto family while we hadn't even heard from a Dr.

waited over 9 hours to have my child's foot casted. We had to have multiple X-rays because the first ones were done wrong. The doctor tried to say we left and that's why we waited so long- we never left our RAZ chairs except to go to xray. The cast needed the bottom repaired a few weeks later and we drove to SMH instead and were in and out in less than an hour.

I would rather drive the extra 30/40 mins to get to RCH than go back to ridge meadows. I've had multiple bad experiences but this last one was it for me. I ended up with a blood clot in my vein which is now infected because the nurse there didn't properly administer medication through my IV. I won't be going back there again, ever!

Went in there to get an X-RAY done due to a sprain. I had no appointment but got a number to wait for. The 1st lady that helped me actually came out and assisted with taking down the number. She was very nice. I sat down and looked at the screen - it was still at 58. Finally, got up and looked at the number again it went from 59 and I see it skipped my number, 60 and went straight to 61. I went up to another older lady with grey hair and she spoke over me saying "did you have an appointment?".. I said, "no but I have a number and it was skipped." She didn't even bother to look at what number it was, no eye contact, she just told me to take a seat PLEASE. I told her I looked at the screen and watched it my number was skipped without seeing it being called. This lady goes, "Well... that's too bad you will just have to wait. We called you and you weren't here. Can you move aside please this gentleman was here before you." She then tells the next guy, "that's what happens when you don't show up.. you get to the back of the bus" SMH
I am a minority and may have been younger than her. From the looks of it she either was just plain miserable or racist. Who knows? Lady, you need to get some fresh air! I never go to the hospital and always hear stories like this from others. IT IS true. I am not joking you. Dear Miserable Ridge Meadows Nurse: I did nothing wrong to you nor do I deserve to be discriminated or spoke to in a condescending way. I pay for my MSP every year and that goes to your paycheque. PLEASE listen to yourself first and see how you treat people - ask yourself if that's the way you would like to be treated? Thank you have a nice day.

I went in because a pain in my hips/ovary area made it hard to breathe and made me too dizzy to function, and the front desk and nurses there were lovely! Triage was strict and calm, gave me all the right questions and listened when I talked, but the ER was awful!
The doctor never identified himself to me OR my grandfather who came with me!
He laid me back and made me choke because the shift hurt so bad, pulled my shirt up a little to push hard RIGHT above the pain, and then when I broke down from the pain he disappeared, saying I needed bloodwork and that I needed to give a THIRD urine sample! When my bloodwork was done and I'd gotten my hysterics under control, a nurse who didn't identify herself either came and gave me a needle without explanation. It was 'something to help with the pain' and 'you don't have any drug allergies?', and then the needle hurt so bad I couldn't move my arm to undo my jeans! I spent the rest of that day in agony, and I didn't eat for the next two days because the nausea meant it all came back up!
NEVER EVER GOING BACK, WHAT A JOKE!

Third world country can't have it worst. I broke my Achille's tendon. Nobody came to ask me if I need a painkiller. They were not busy, no accidents no emergency. At some point the hospital was almost empty and still nobody to ask me if I am still alive or whatever. But this is the hospital were people are DYING Literally on the emergency room. Why am I paying care card?
Everybody is cracking jokes and do nothing. I suggest we bring them booze and smokes so they will enjoy their so called JOB better. What an insult for the regular Joe.

Doctors in emergency do nothing after waiting hours to see them .. They see the crackheads first to try and get them to leave

Sitting in ER currently. Been waiting for 4 and a half hours to see a doctor. 4 nurses at nursing station..... All standing around joking about their week and complaining about how they are over worked! Laughing so loud it is actually disturbing people. What a joke! This is exactly why BC residents have such a high MSP payment, I don't mind giving people my hard earned money to do their job, especially when it consists of standing around gossiping (sarcasm). Oh by the way nursing staff! People can hear your whispers when you are talking poorly about the patients! "Just a ear infection , he can be moved down the line" - even if it wasn't me that you were talking about..... It still offends me. Pretty pathetic. The cleaning staff was really great though! To be honest , they had better bed side manners than the nurses! Next time I need a doctor I will drive to Eagle Ridge Hospital. I prefer the drive and would rather wait where the staff are professional.
