Ratings for Royal Victoria Hospital
This hospital is the very worst I have ever had the displeasure coming to. The nurses are rude, they treat you like a number, they do not seem to care if you are in pain or not. All the money they seem to be spending on renovations and building a residency, but they cannot afford to fix the 2 bathroom doors right by emerg.? ! Both have a sign saying please knock, as the locks are broken.
I have been waiting here to be seen for 5.5 hours, there are signs saying Do Not eat or take Anything as it may interfere with the nurses being able to help you. I was in agonizing pain from a severely infected eardrum, I went up to the nurse to ask , at 5.5 hours in, how much longer, and if they have anything to help with the pain. She said no, I don't. If you have something, go ahead and take it. I said that is not what the signs say , she said she couldn't help me.

In 2003 I went to the RVH with complaints of chest pain and having a hard time breathing. The emergency Dr called my then neurologist Dr Allan Gordon at Mt Sian who stated that there was nothing wrong with me and there was no need for expensive medical test. The RVH emergency Dr then refused to conduct any test, not even Blood work, I left the hospital and went directly to St Mikes Hospital by cab... The emergence dept took 10 to 20 minutes and decided to take me in to see one of the emergency doctors who immediately ran blood test and ordered a nuclear scan. I was released and sent home- The emergency Dr told me at ST Mikes it will take a couple hours to read the scan and they would call me. less than and 1 hr and 25 minutes and as I was entering my home in Barrie the Dr from St Mikes called and asked me to return immediately to the Hospital - when I ased if I can come in the morning as it was close to 8 pm- The Dr advise no that the scan showed several blood clots in my legs and that I also had a Bi Lateral embolism in my lungs and that if I did not return to the hospital for care that I would not have made it through the night. Shamefully the emergency DR from RVH now works for Mt Sian Hospital which is the hospital that the Neurologist DR Allan Gordon claimed that I was faking and there was no need for expensive test- Shame on RVH and Mt Sian who both actively participated in this negligence. I spent 4 days in ICU and another 7 days in Hospital and close to a year on blood thinners- I can extend a kind word of thanks to St Mike's Hospital for saving my life.

Not even worth a rating. Terrible hospital, nurses are unorganized and rude, they only care about a paycheck not you. Highly recommend any other hospital, rvh needs to step up. Very very upset with them.

My son was brought in by ambulance for moderate heat stroke, he went un conscious 4 times, we where brought in the general waiting area in a wheel chair..after 3 hours and another un conscious episode they brought him to a room, the nurse gave him iv...then said her shift was over. He was brought in at 9 pm we finally say a doctor at 4 am.......which he then said we will give your son another iv treatment....the emergency department was in my opinion very quiet that night .....i have lived in Barrie all my life and have been and used this hospital before, it seems that when I think about it every time I have had to go there it has been less then satisfactory.......could be a culture problem? , a provincial problem?, iam not sure but rvh has a pattern........

I have mixed feelings about RVH. Some nurses exceptional, others should not be working there. Had a family member in 4G. She had a relapse and the Doctor had questions about her health history. He never called. Told the nurse to leave a note on file to have him call the family, he never did. Waited five hours one day to talk to doctor, then was told he was not there that day. Vague answers from nursing staff in regards to health questions. Sometimes felt I was interrupting their gab sessions. Simply put, it's Barrie's only hospital. What choice do you have.

I have no complaints about RVH the staff is wonderful the Doctors compassionate and reliable and the facility very clean. If I was to ever work at a hospital this would be the one I'd want to work at. I've had 2 surgeries here now and both were a breeze and performed by great surgeons.

HORRIBLE. HORRIBLE. HORRIBLE.
My Grandmother, has Cirvical Cancer. Was in constant pain too the point she could not walk or even move for that matter. LAST NIGHT AT ROYAL VICTORIA HOSPITAL, was by far, the WORST hospital I have ever attended. They put my Grandmother in Icute area, would NOT give her any pain medication. While she lays there, crying! The nurses are talking about their lives outside of work, laughing and having a wonderful time, while we sat there from 2AM-10AM. And also, they were constantly calling too find the doctor, because he was not able too be found. This hospital, that is apparently "caring" and "helpful" can kiss my white ASS. Patients that were perfectly fine were treated before my 56 year old tiny Grandmother, who was at the hospital the night before also. SAME TREATMENT GIVEN. Thank you Royal Victoria Hospital, I know now, from now on, too never attend your location, even if I am on deaths bed. 👌🏻😡😤 I DONT RECOMMEND ANYONE TOO GO TOO THIS LOCATION, YOUR WASTING YOUR TIME!!!!!
