Ratings for Humber River Hospital
What an embarrassment this hospital is to the Canadian system. Taxpayers paid millions and trillions of dollars to build a state-of-the-art hospital but unfortunately due to a lot of technology and that hospital you have no loss of human touch the human element. Because of the previous surgery I had at Humber River I have to continue going back to that hospital as I know my body anatomy the best. When they were at the Finch site I never had an issue going to the ER I was in hook up to pain meds and taking care of right away most times resulting into emergency surgery. The first time I was ever at the new Wilson site was when I had my son 5 months ago. The nurses did not do their job I would have had my baby waste sooner all the nurse needed to do was check me due to the failure of checking me my son came out extremely bruised and I was in a ton of pain. The epidural did not work. The following day after having my son a nurse didn't even come in to ask me if I was feeding my son the bottle or breast didn't ask me if I needed help learning how to breastfeed as I am a first-time mom and they are fully aware of that. When I requested lactose free food everything on my tray had milk in it and I could not eat. After giving birth to my son at 4:25 a.m. no food was even given to me to bring up my energy. I was so disappointed in this Hospital. Fast forward five months now, I went and seen my surgeon as I was having extreme abdominal pain this is a surgeon that works at a Humber River he was convinced I needed my gallbladder out and an internal hernia fixed. He did not order any test blood work ultrasound x-ray or CAT scan and just immediately booked me for surgery the following Monday. Due to me being in extreme pain I just wanted this fixed I ended up calling him back saying I was very uncomfortable that he did nose test to prove all of this was happening so he ordered an ultrasound and I let him know with those results I did not want my gallbladder taken out. I still went in for surgery to fix what they suspected was an internal hernia. I woke up from surgery in extreme pain to be told by my significant other that the surgeon has spoken to him and they didn't find anything nor did they fix anything. The doctor didn't have the decency to come speak to me directly as it was more important for him to go home for the day. No care instructions were given to me regarding my incision sites no pain meds were given to go home with even though I was in extreme pain and no follow-up appointment was given to talk to the surgeon. All I can say about my two experiences at the new hospital is that I wouldn't trust my life there or my families do not go there they're more concerned about all the technology and doing tours of this Hospital than the patients that are in the bed.

What's the point of having such a state of the art facility if it's going to be filled with the most incompetent staff I've ever had the displeasure of meeting?? I went to the ER after calling Telehealth and the nurse suggesting I go after going through my symptoms. I should've just stayed home. One woman working at the registration desk was vile. She took it upon herself to diagnose me and then give me an incredulous look when I said that I haven't taken any meds. Are you kidding me? News flash you're not a doctor! She also cut me off and never let me actually finish telling her all of my symptoms. Well flash forward to seeing the doctor. LITERALLY saw me for 2 mins before diagnosing me and sending me home. No blood tests, no vitals, nothing. He completely ignored me when I told him my concerns and just told me to take some Tylenol. A hospital I once went to in a poor South American country gave me 100x better service than this major joke they call a hospital. Just think about that for a second. To anyone that needs a hospital DON'T go to this one. You're better off going to any of the downtown hospitals or even St. Joe's.

Terrible!!! My dad was in there for a couple of months with complications from reumatoid arthritis, he had a neck operation and after the neck operation, things started going downhill fast!!! We went to the hospital to visit him on Sat in Jan 1995(my mom and my two sisters) he had tubes u his nose and the following day, he had a mask over his face when he needed to be put on a respirator in ICU causing him brain to be unresponsive when we were saying DAD,........DAD! There was a delay by the doctor on that floor, they took him to ICU, I don't recall them even turning him once, his leg turned white and cold, we noticed,the nurses didn't until we brought it to their attention, gangrene set in now HOW DO U GET THAT BY LYING IN ONE SPOT!!! He wasn't a diabetic, that ICU doctor Baldi was a mean miserable incompetent

Absolutely deplorable hospital. I don't understand how millions went into building this new building to only have uneducated and ignorant medical staff. I spent over 12 hrs at the hospital for my father waiting to get care and when we finally saw who we thought were doctors it was very disappointing, none of them knew what he had or how to treat him, and only to learn that they were both residents, one who discharged my dad after a very bloody and painful procedure he went through, only to then be waiting in the lobby ready to leave and then start to bleed heavily once again. Ignorant uneducated resident doctors, and never being able to get an actual doctor for proper care. The previous time we went again with my father the resident discharged him only to then be rushed back to get emergency surgery and the doctor then indicated he never should have been discharged in the first place. Absolutely horrific hospital, all my family will try our best to longer go here even if that means a longer commute to another hospital by ambulance. Trillium and Credit Valley a million times better. If any medical staff from this hospital ever reads this please please understand how important someone health and life is in your hands and care. If you're just in this profession for the money and can care less about patients please don't ruin someone life and destroy families by staying in the medical profession, every patient is human and deserves to be treated like one. It's been a nightmare for my family and I at this place you call a hospital.

I recently had day surgery at this hospital and was concerned going in based on the reviereviews that I had read here. I must say, My experience was nothing but good!! Well....as good as a surgery can go. Lol
Right from the pre-op interview, the pre-registration to the nurses who prepped me for surgery and the other Drs attending.....they were all amazing! Polite, caring and professional. The day after the surgery they even called me at home to make sure I was ok and everything was well on track and to make sure I had made a follow up appointment with the surgeon. Please don't let these bad rating affect your thoughts of the hospital. There are great personnel working there and they treated me and even my husband who was there with me like gold. Thank you humber river hospital!

tech all your employers, including Doctors and nurse to have respect for patient who are sick. Even if the patient is angry and they say thing that they don't want to say or mean. Crack a smile when they come into the room. Have a small conversation with them while you are taking care of them. Its those little things that can lift up there spirit to get better.

Don't believe everything you read.
I expected to wait hours in emerg to be seen. On a late Thursday morning, it was pretty empty. I was in an out in a hour being seen for a scratched cornea.
I hate Etobicoke general, this will be my hospital of choice from now on.
