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.

The good staff stand out because the bad are so bad. Nearly froze to death two nights in a row, so, since I had pneumonia, went home to get warm and get some quiet. ICU as noisy as a hen party all night long. Food worse than terrible. Nurses for the most part rushed, bossy and rough. Two of three doctors awful - one eccentric and one a Psycho. Some idiot my first night there, just before giving me a mask, asked me if I wanted to be resuscitated. Had to laugh. The person that helped me most and did so by demonstrating common sense and empathy was an orderly who just listened, solved, and quietly went about his business. I wish he had the pay that Dr. Psycho in ICU is getting. I had the distinct sense that instead of reading any sort of chart, each person asking me the same questions every change of shift was going to exhaust me, so I got the heck out and came home to heal.

The nurses I have experienced in the ER lack compassion. They are unprofessional and rude.

My Nan went to the ER by ambulance, it ended up being her last days alive. The nurse in the 'admission' unit was so caring, so compassionate. She did her job as though she loved it, as though it was her loved one being cared for. From the smallest of requests, to the important ones she saw them through. The staff in the admission unit do a wonderful job and are very approachable. Thank-you!

The nurses in this hospital lack knowledge and are extremely unprofessional .
Other patients in the room commented to us about how rudely the staff spoke to us. That is the last thing sick people deserve. Hope to never return to the DGH!

When returned back to this ER they apparently did not know what was wrong with me even though what was done to me medically has life threatening complications so I have since found out. An extensive cover up followed which included falsified records, the concealing of flagged blood test results and radiology reports that cannot be trust as being truthful.
