Ratings for Dartmouth General Hospital
Went to emergency over the weekend. Was filthy. Was put into a room where the bedding wasn't changed, bloody bandages on the floor and was awful. The first doctor drilled me over and over again not listening to what I was saying. I told her I had a gastric attack after having a sip of wine which didn't go well with my reflux and she took that as if I was allergic to wine and why would I drink something I was allergic to. After I needed a needle which I had to wait an hour and a half for. Worse hospital ever!! So angry.

ER has Extremely long waits, work partially completed, only to be left for another long wait, at times no dr in ER at all, I mean come on, how does your ER not have a DR!!!! Staff is really unorganized, I made a joke that I was forgotten about and it turns out, I was! So much more I can't say, maybe they need more dr's, but for cryin out loud do your best with what you got!!

i recently had surgery at the Dartmouth General after arriving through the Emergency Department just before Christmas. I found the staff were efficient and kept me informed of what I was experiencing and what would happen next. During my short stay I has X-rays, C-T scan, lots of blood work and pain meds to make me comfortable. I was visited by several medical Residents and a number of nursers who compiled information effectively and were considerate of the extent of pain I was experiencing. The surgeon has a full schedule but spoke with me in a non-rushed and reassuring manner. The experience was very good.

This is a terrible facility and is more harmful than helpful. The doctors have no interest in treating patients. They don't listen and prefer to complain about "holes in the system." This facility should be avoided if at all possible.

This so called public hospital is a complete joke and a total waste of tax payers money. The so called nurses are total incompetent and lazy. They don't want to help patients and all they do is sit around and gossip. The so called LPNs are also a complete waste of space. Everyone from the doctors, nurses and LPNs should be all fired for malpractice along with the clerical staff for their attitude working with the public and their total incompetence. The place should be torn down and bulldozed into a public park. At least tax payers might get something for their money.

The worst hospital in all of nova Scotia. Next to no staff, the building is old and so is the equipment and the staff that are there are rude and don't know what they are doing.

If you have a choice I'd suggest the QE2 in Halifax. If not maybe you'll get a better role of the dice. Place is a total shot in the dark when it comes to attitudes.
For 15yrs I've unfortunately had to go to the Dartmouth general for treatment due to Crohn's disease. I've had many pleasant trips there ( as pleasant as they can be when dealing with crohns ). I've met many nice Drs , surgeons and nurses over those years however in the past 3yrs those I've had to meet and receive treatment from has become progressively worse , from ignorance , arrogance , poor attitudes, and condescending nature.
I can't even put into words how bad it was there this morning. Treating you like they are the God and you have to do as they say because they have all the power. Refusing to listen to reason or common sense
All this stems from a lack in leadership I'm guessing , the gov't inability to properly staff the medical system in Nova Scotia.
Chances are I'll have to go back at some point, but not if I have choice. I don't have to like them, they don't have to like me , treatment couldn't get much worse

I've had to deal with their ER twice in as years. This place is a joke. The first time I was there I waited in one of those cubical a for 6 hours & then sent home in the same shape I showed up in. I had diarrhea for a meerkat when went there & all they said that if had been 2 they would do something. Once it finally stopped on its own. I goggled it cause it didn't seem like typical diarrhea I found out it was gallbladder induced diarrhea. This past January I went down there again with stomach discomfort & again sat around they sent me home again without any answer except to comeback the next day so they can run the only test they didn't do to see if it was gallstones. Came back the next day for the test & that's exactly what was up. If those idiots had of done their job two years ago I wouldn't have had to waste more time & aggravation on those jokers.
