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.

This hospital should be closed they have the most uneducated doctors and nurses in the province of Nova Scotia . If you want to die this is the place to go for sure . This hospital makes me sick it's sad when you lose a love one to negligent staff maybe if in the ICU they actually paid attention to the patients and the family more people would survive , get off your cell phones stop gathering at the desk , going on kijiji and pay attention to the patient more people might survive the Dartmouth General. Oh and when there is a crisis in ICU maybe have a couple nurses available for the rest of the patients and you All attend to the crisis patient and leave all the other ICU patients unattended.

If they misdiagnose an infection( Septicemia) that days later spreads and you get Meningitis as well do not be surprise it they cover up and conceal everything!

During a visit to Emergency, I was treated very quickly and competently . Within minutes of arriving, I was given fluids while other information was given to the nurse that was assigned. Before I left the unit, I was seen by two ER doctors and an Internal Medicine Specialist . The Internal Medicine Specialist also followed up with me two weeks later. I truly appreciated all the great care that was given yo me by the nurses, doctors , the porter and the X-Ray technician. What a well oiled team! The DGH is a great hospital!

My name is Helmuth Wiegert. I experienced great service and devotion from a nurse not sure of her name but I think her name was Steffi ( Nice Oriental Doctor that was very compassionate ) for several hours with me. I had a very bad case of a sore throat and could not swallow or eat anything for two days. Well she had me x rayed and prescribed excellent anti bionics. Well I feel good tonight much better as this morning. I think Dr. Todd Howlett is running a good show at the DGH. Hopefully somebody or Dr. Todd Howlett will make sure that Steffi is made aware how happy I am this evening. I am even going to indulge in a Captain Morgan tonight. Hey I am happy . I am cured. Kind regards, Helmuth Wiegert, Pleasant Street, Dartmouth.
