Ratings for Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital
We have been residents of Oakville for many years and live 5 mins from the hospital. My wife went into labour and had concerns about her labour pain. We called the hospital first to ask whether it was a good idea to come in and were rudely told that we had to go to the hospital where my wife's Ob/Gyn was located. Why does this matter in Ontario where you are entitled to receive care at any hospital? Absolutely disgusted by these people.

Very bad expirence with Emergency Doctor, my husband spent a 8 hours in emergency with a heavy coughing, doctor was upset that he come in with the cough to emergency, did his examination and sent my husband home telling him that he has a cold. 3 days later my husband went to family doctor because he was almost choking with his cough and family Doctor said that he has very bad pneunomia family Doctor couldn't believe that emergency Doctor kick him out from the hospital with so bad health condition . I am very disappointed with the same doctors in this hospital.

It's a sparkly building and a pretty view to be sure but be prepared. If you go in with an elderly relative for whom you are the sole day to day caregiver you are in for a shock. When you speak up about the fact that your relative has not been taken to a toilet for DAYS, or had their teeth or dentures or body cleaned in DAYS, or you walk in and test their sugar and find that it is 28.8 and you inform someone about this, the capacity for retribution on the part of nurses and staff is incredible. When you complain to a charge nurse or floor manager, the nurses will them taunt you, goad you and ignore your relative and when you complain to management again they will circle the wagons, fabricate stories about you and exclude you so that they can completely ignore your relative, telling you that they have 36 other patients to care for. Then your elderly, diabetic, demented, fractured, pain-ridden relative will now not be moved, fed, hydrated or oriented because you won't be there to do it and they "don't have time" to do it. How is this permitted in a publicly funded hospital? By the time they are done with her, she will be yet another elderly permanent resident in the hospital. And no, she will not be going into LTC. If they render her unable to return home to me they will have to keep her. They broke her, let them fix her. Also, beware. For all the fancy facility, those dishwasher things to clean the bedpans leave bodily waste caked in the pan and on any other object you clean in them, so next thing you know, you're bathing in your own waste. The PALS are good about daily sweeping and mopping in the rooms, but the rest of the room isn't disinfected and the nurses don't wash their hands in spite of all the new hand washing stations, they just use hand sanitizer which doesn't kill C. diff. people! I could go on.

AS FAR, AS I HAVE SEEN. THE PERSON WHO PURCHASED THIS HOSPITAL AS A SECURE BUSINESS TO EARN A SALARY, IS NOT WHITE & DOES NOT LIKE US. THE DOCTORS, HAVE NO EXPERIENCE, THEY OBVIOUSLY HIRED THEM, BECAUSE THEY CAN PAY LESS THAN 1/3 OR 1/2 PRICE FOR THEIR SALARY. A BRAND NEW, OUT OF UNIVERSITY, FEMALE DOCTOR, TOLD ME THAT SHE IS PAID LESS THAN $50,000. SHE WOULDN'T ANSWER WHEN I ASKED HER HOW MANY YEARS OF EXPERIENCE SHE HAS. WHEN I SAID, HOW MANY 1,000'S OF DOLLARS I PAY IN TAXES EVERY YEAR FOR THE LAST 50 YEARS, SHE FINALLY REPLIED THAT SHE HAD 1 YEAR OF EXPERIENCE! COME ON, OAKVILLE, RESIDENTS, WE KNOW HOW MUCH WE LEARNED IN 1 YEAR OF BEING AT ANY CAREER. VERY LITTLE, THAT IS HOW MUCH YOU ARE ALLOWED TO ---- EXPERIENCE, BECAUSE YOU KNOW VERY LITTLE!!!! COME ON, OAKVILLE, RESIDENTS.
90 PERCENT OF OAKVILLE, HAS HISTORICALLY, BEEN BRITISH. THE BRITISH, ARE HUGE ON, READING & EDUCATION, BECAUSE AFTER ALL, THIS IS THEIR NATIVE, LANGUAGE!!!!! COME WELL READ, MAJORITY, WHO HAVE UNIVERSITY DEGREES, AND ALMOST ALL HAVE THE HIGHEST INCOMES!!! LET'S CALL, WRITE, ADVERTISE IN NEWSPAPER ARTICLES IN THE OAKVILLE BEAVOR, TO THE PARTICULAR PERSON & PEOPLE WHO WRITE THE CHEQUES FOR THE SALARIES AT OAKVILLE HOSPITAL. AND DROP THE, NO MEANING, OLD FASHIONED, "TRAFALGAR". IT IS NO LONGER ON TRAFALGAR ROAD!!!! AND THE NEW GENERATION DOES NOT KNOW ABOUT THE OLD HOSPITAL, OR ANYTHING ABOUT IT!!!!!!!!!!

I had a brief stay in the mental health unit. Everybody was professional and kind.

Was sent to emerge by ambulance after a car accident. Only 1 doctor working. Arrived at 7:40pm. Only saw Dr. Singh at 11:45pm. Nurses and Radiology were kind and very officiant. But we only received the results from Doctor at 3:00am, even though he had the results hours earlier. When he finally came, he only addressed 2 out of the 3 major issues, and told us to wait 20 mins for a prescription and a splint. No instructions on the meds, and thank goodness the nurse saw the ankle also needed taping. Even though she just started her shift. Rediculous waiting for minimal information from the Doctor.
Also disappointed in the design of the brand new building. My daughter is in a powerchair, and while trying to find me in the emerge, the wheelchair door button was positioned too high and blocked by a decorative windowsill. She could not get in. They also locked the doors by the wheelchair parking, with no personnel (security) to help. So my husband went to get the car closer for me (now needing a wheelchair) but could not get back in. It is a hospital, why is it locked?

Words cannot express how disgusting the emergency department @ Oakville Hospital is. Total lack of proffessionalism just gets worse from the bottom to the top !! I foolishly hoped when the new facility opened they'd of removed the parasites that are allowed to do the evil that they do. Instead, the status quo remains the same. How the powers to be alow this to continue is beyond me. The ER is a complete cancer unto itself !! When in Gods name will something be done about this ??

Have stayed in numerous. southern Ontario hospitals. This is by far my best experience.
I was admitted via the Emergency Dept with serious heart and kidney problems.
First physician contact was with Dr. Fong. He processed my admission and quickly placed me in the cardiac unit.
I stayed in hospital for over a week.
During my stay I was seen by Dr. Lee and cardiologist, Dr. Sean Jedrzkiewic, as well as nephrologist, Dr Pandeya.
All the physicians were knowledgeable, gave me lots of time and answered all my questions.
During the week's stay, I was treated by many different nurses and technicians. Without exception they were all outstanding.
The food at the hospital to my surprise was good. I appreciated being able to make choices and time of delivery.
I found the nurses to be empathetic, available and very professional.
If I had any complaints it would be with a couple of nursing teams who, on night shifts, used the nursing station as a social centre and forgot that patients were trying to sleep.
Under the difficult circumstances this was a very positive experience.
My sincere thanks.

Our experience has been nothing short of terrific. My husband had a heart attack and required stents. He was promptly stabilized, sent to Trillium for the procedure and back to Oakville for followup. From beginning to cardiac rehab followup, staff and Drs have been amazing. Thanks to Dr. Lapp, a great doctor and young enthusiastic ER nurses. Thank you!
