Do not go to the family birthing unit at this hospital. Terrible. They don't give you an appointment time, and the doctor office is never available to tell you when to come in. The doctor blascinsky didn't have the test results we expidited in time for the appointment, she left them in her purse. She already had her mind made up with how to treat the miscarriage before she walked in the room, carrying the pills in her hand. Was talking on her cell phone when her fingers were in my fiancees vag administering the pills. Told us to come back in 24 hours if they didn't work, which they didn't. She went back as instructed and was told to go to emergency for the medication because it would be faster. She waited 7 hours for the medication, and they gave us a prescription and made me administer it myself and read her charts myself. What a joke!!!
Were going to royal Columbian from now on they were do much better and the doctor was horrified at our experience in Surrey. Much more professional care.

This was without a doubt THE dirtiest hospital ever. Spent 5 weeks there with my mom this summer after it took them 6 months to finally diagnose her with stage 4 breast cancer. She was already stage 4 when she started to present symptoms and six months later she almost died. Her room was mopped once in the 5 weeks I was there with her. There was poo in the hallway that people would walk around. I saw stains on the floor that stayed there the entire stay. This hospital is a joke. You go there to get sick not better.

I've been to peds emerg 3 times in the last 3 months with my daughter. All visits related. I went last night, Sept 25th (we were there from 11:30om-1am - the shortest we had ever been there for - typical wait time is 5-6 HOURS) The ER Dr on literally laughed when I told him why we were there and proceeded to insinuate that I was making this visit out to be "urgent" when (in his opinion) it wasn't urgent. He never once asked me about my daughters history with this issue, he basically told me that he would not be expediting my daughters referral to an ENT and that I should take her home, give her Advil and Gatorade. The nurses weren't much better. Only one RN out of a group of 5 standing around at the nurses station bothered to treat me like a human being, come out of the mnursing station and talk with me, provide advice and give suggestions about the ENT and what some options were.
I WORK FOR FRASER HEALTH
ITS A DISGRACE
I work in the same floor at Central City as Michael Marchbank and I will personally be delivering him a letter about his incident.
Oh, and raping patients with PAID PARKING is an additional disgrace! Here's a thought, follow Delta's lead in saying "No!" to paid park at hospitals.

Horrible in every way! Drug attics off the street wander the halls, begging for smokes and drug dealers outside the doors selling drugs to people walking in and out. Security ignored all the scrappy so wondering in and out. Poor care. nurse did not care one bit. Extremely dirty. I was in for a bowel removal and checked myself out "ama" and still felt I was better off than in there. Ended up with an infection on the bowel from the OR room. I would NEVER GO BACK to this hosier all again.

Terrible hospital! Been there twice in the past six months and I will never go there again after this second time. First time, I went for a chronic migraine. Was there for 8 hours. Took 6 hours before I even saw a doctor! All they gave me was a muscle relaxant and it did not help. Nurse was rude when I tried to tell her that these chronic headaches/migraines had been going on for about a year, she replied with "I don't care about your history. I just want to know what the problem is today". Also, they are SO disorganized there. They asked me to do a urine sample 3 times because they kept "losing them". Such a waste of a day. Second time I was there (just recently), I waited to see a doctor for about only 2 hours this time for something depression related (I am still getting the chronic headaches along which have resulted in me getting really depressed because of how bad it's affecting me physically). He couldn't have even spent 5 minutes with me and basically told me that all my problems are non-existent and are all in my head. Nice. Why is he even allowed to be an emergency doctor in the psychiatric field? He obviously does not know anything about how to talk to patients with mental illness. It's gross! He's just another podunk doctor that doesn't know what he's talking about! I can't remember his name. Otherwise, I would have put it down here.
Do not go to this hospital. It's even messier than it was before the renovated and added the new emergency wing.

Took my father in law into emergency. He had to stay over night in the overflow section as no emerg beds available. Disgraceful!
Staff were excellent, care was good. Frequent flyers such as subtance users, drugs and thugs get fast tracked because of lack of foresight and management in the triage. There needs to be a separate section for the people that are constantly using the system due to drugs and other related issues. We pay over 200k yes 200K in taxes as a family of 2 and get bottom of the barreltriage. I can sadly say that SMH is well on its way to 3rd world public hospital status. The nurses and doctors and paramedics are amazing and doing an amazing job under horrific social demographic curcumstamces. The system must be fixed. Respectable citizens should not have to be subjected to a care facility that feels like a detention centre. We are not a socialist economy or a communistic society. Lets get what we rightly deserve and ensure there is a separate system of triage for the drugs and thugs and any bleeding hearts who disagree can vote with their feet and chose to be treated at these centres. The true picture on the state of the system and the chronic users will surely be revealed when there is transparency. Surrey is building more homes with record breaking permits for building high density condos and SMH has no room to accommodate current demand. Why are the extra millions of $$$ from building permits not going directly to build a centre to help the thugs and drug users get treatment so that the rest of the community can have a respectable place to get quality care in a non demeaning atmosphere.

Horrible hospital. Nurses treat you like animals. It's a great hospital for people from India, for a chunk of their staff are from there. One even referred me to a surgeon who failed my surgery. All the times I've gone to the emergency it's been horrible experience. You wait for so long and your flushed out the door.
