I've been to this hospital quite a few times considering I live in the area and I am not going to drive all the way to mission or coquitlam for a hospital visit.
Two of the times I have been there the staff were awful.
First time: I was admitted to the hospital for some personal issues and while I was in my personal room, I was told I was going to recieve my medication to hep me sleep so I waited for an hour then I walk out and ask a group of nurses for my medication. They LAUGH and reply "Well I dont know who your doctor is" and proceed to having a conversation with another staff member.. Completely ignoring my needs. As I wait another hour in pain for a nurse to finally come and help.
Another time I came here, I went with ny friend who was having suicidal thoughts as we were waiting in the room I was getting upset because my friend was histerically crying so I walk to a nurse and ask how long he thinks it will be. He looks at me extremely pissed off and says "There are people in this hospital with worse problems. " and walks away. That was disgusting of someone to say and a nurse to treat my friends mental health as a joke. This friend of mine actually recently passed away and now I am thinking they need to start rehiring people here. And train them better. This hospital is a joke.

My mother, who is 91, was 3 times rushed to emergency, only to be misdiagnosed until the fourth admission for pneumonia. Two of the 4 weeks of her stay she was in the emergency room. When she was finally released, she was rushed back after having contracted C. Diff from the hospital. Now on her total of 8 weeks in the hospital and no end in sight. Very poor hand-washing practices. We needed to have relatives in shifts to insure she received care.

Worst hospital ever! I was in for a severely broken ankle and back. when I was first in the ER no one told me that I shouldn't move. They let me get up and down. When I was finally put in a room I was crying because of the pain and shock from my accident. I was told by the nursing staff that "crying won't help anything you know". I didn't see another nurse for hours. The nurse refused to take out my catheter even though the doctor said it could be. When she finally did it she just pulled hard, it hurt horribly! I've had a catheter removed before and it is NOT supposed to feel that painful. then, and I believe as retribution, I was given a male urine collection cup. Did I mention I broke my back? I couldn't use it! thankfully a care aid came in and gave me a female It's been 3 years and I still have flashbacks, not from the accident but from the lack of care I experienced by tthe uncaring nurses at ridge meadows hospital.

Nice and knowledgeable and helpful staff. The vegan menu was great. The bed was very uncomfortable.

I worked there as a nursing assistant in acute care and emergency. Nurses spend too much time socializing and ignore call bells. No safety checks are done on night shifts. I found patients in cardiac arrest and on the floor on various occasions while their nurse was sitting at the nurses' station reading or on facebook or chatting. Care aides are abused by nursing staff and management. Patient care is not the focus of management. Their focus is on meeting a budget so they can get their bonus. So, the manager who refuses to provide relief staff for sick calls etc is rewarded for saving money on patient care by getting a bonus.

My friend's mother was admitted with 5 ulcers with severe adhesions, suffering from rapid weight loss and in intractable pain. It took the hospital much too long to give her grossly inadequate pain relief, and then the night nurse REFUSED to follow the doctors order to give even this medication. The patient's daughter reported this failure to the nurse, as her mother was in such anguish it was disturbing to witness, who insisted she had given the medication, but did NOT look at her own chart which clearly showed she had not given it. The same nurse rudely refused to help open a package of depends for patient demanding instead "what, can't you do it yourself". The patient couldn't do it herself, tried to use the bathroom, with awful results. The day shift nurse immediately noted from the chart that no pain MEDs had been given all night, the patient was in intractable pain, which the night shift nurse was aware of while she refused to administer the doctors prescribed medication. Cruel.

This hospital is not fit for a dog and I'm sure dog receive better treatment at the SPCA. My last visit to my Mother I found her laying in her own feces for over an hour. Some of the nurses are very nice and professional and some of them should be working in the prison system. I mean if you don't like your job then why are you there. After finding my Mother laying in her own feces I complained and was then told by the Doctor not to speak to the nurses anymore and that if I continued to complain he would have security evict me and I would never be able to visit my Mother again in that hospital. My Mother has been given 3 months to live. Thank you Ridge Meadows Hospital.

I have been treated like a piece of garbage when at this hospital. The doctors in emergency are arogant, uncaring and have been told to stop crying so they can examine me, screamed at "what do you want I have patients to see" and I asked what am I? Left without any fluids or food for a day and a half, also a doctor said "I am not your family doctor so what do you want me to do?" I lost my dignity and self esteem here and am afraid to go back there.
