Ratings for Royal Victoria Hospital
Although supporting your community hospital is something you should do, I just can't. We have all contributed tax dollars to create this new TajMahal and it is good from far but far from good, I feel. It is time the tax payer gets what they pay for..compassionate care, short wait times, and care second to none. None of these things happen at RVH based on recent visits. We deserve better from this hospital! Nurses are rude and staff appear unhappy when encountered. The MRI wait times are the worst in Ontario......for years! The patient is to come first, right? I don't think the administration gets it. I feel the hospital is disconnected from it's community and needs to have forums on a regular basis with the tax payers to hear honest and meaningful thoughts and concerns. The building looks nice. The care is disappointing. There need to be changes, I feel.

worst hospital in history. looks like a cathedral but the two rpn ' s we met up with on mental health were rude, and fed us a lot of bull '@$$#' when we had questions about our son. we interrupted them though they were playing on their cell phones and talking very loud and grossly about sleeping with a security guard who had just left the unit. the should be reported. beware of amanda and sovey or Sophie or something like that. it's worth the drive to toronto.

RVH used to be a great hospital but over the past several years it has changed for the worse. It is all about slogans and marketing rather than patient care. The staff seem timid to talk about the hospital culture. This transition results from the top and the top needs changing.

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........
