This hospital is horrible, try to avoid. The doctors don't care they are there just for a pay check they used over force on my boys broken arm and but a cast and sling like a ameture. Everytime I go there they are on way to many breaks and make you wait 4 hrs with nobody there. DO NOT GO HERE!! They will miss diagnose you to get you out the door. No care ameture horrible.

Girlfriend was supposed to have a simple surgical procedure, but the surgical team failed to lable and distinguish between an anesthetic and botox syringe, thus wasting over 500 dollars worth of botox by injecting it right into her bladder. Has done nothing but cause more harm....

Family has had two appalling experiences at this institution. Care is a disgrace to the nursing profession, it is a filthy facility, worse that any third world facility I've seen, and their attempts to bring attention to clean hands, is ironic when you look at the state of the wards, patient toilets and bathrooms. This is an embarrassment to Canada! I cannot even give a 1 rating for any area., but couldn't post this without selecting one star. This facility does not deserve a star at all!

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!
