the new hospital is incredible,but as all these previous comments have said, the staff and waiting times are atrocious for people who are ill and need immediate attention. i was in emerg with critically low hemoglobin and platelets for over 12 hours before I was given life saving blood transfusions. then, i had to wait 6 hours to be taken to a room. Why? because the hospital only employs 15 porters for the entire facility who are overworked and completely stressed. They told me that other hospitals have over 40 porters! What is Humber thinking? Is this how they make their hospital more efficient, by stressing staff and patients needlessly? And forget those call buttons for the nurse. They never come. I've been in other hospitals when they respond in under 5 minutes. Here, it can be up to half an hour before they come in, yet you can hear them chatting at the front desk. What if you were having chest pains, or a heart attack? You'd be gone by the time they came in. I was sick and threw up in bed, and I had to wait, dirty and nauseous for half an hour before anyone came. And you can go hours and hours wuthout seeing your nurse. They don't do vitals like they should. You feel abandonned and forgotten and a burden to them. My mother almost died here needlessly. And if it wasnt out of necessity I would have never gone here. Even the cab driver who took me here warned me against coming here. Without a doubt this is the orst hospital inToronto. And ai agree with all the comments here. If you or your loved ones want to die, come here.The hospital itself is beautiful now, but that is only a facade. Everything else is still the same. Insanely long waiting times, poor nurses with bad attitudes (and in some cases predjudice towards the patients), miscommunication, lack of information, and a lack of confidence. Does the director of this hospital ever read these comments? Another reason to stay away. No one cares. Someone in customer care should be monitoring this site and taking these comments seriously before major disaster strikes and a scandal ensues in the press and in public.

I can't believe a new modern facility is run in such a horrid way. I hope these reviews are noted and changes made. Go elsewhere!

Was here when my mother in law fell sick and died. She broke her hip in the hospital and died one week later. While alive she was given loads of family approved MORPHINE which put her into a coma since she had Liver Disease; the nurses tried to vehemently cover this fact up. 99% of the nurses were atrocious, one from church location who was working there was good. Overall the experience here was horrendous, the reason being the lazy, uncaring, I knowledgeable nurses and invisible doctors. No amount of billion dollar equipment or fundraising will ever make the difference.
This is obvious in the more recent reviews. You go here to DIE. You go here so they can bill OHIP for medications, 'health care', exrays, testing etc.... This morbidly large 'state of the art' hospital is only an illusion of healthcare. Everyone knows the difference is in the PEOPLE the DESIRE of those people and this hospital is a Zero. Another Cash Grab. Another Big Pharma monster and another way to heard the sheep to their deaths. People it's time for a revolution. A Wake Up Call. These people do not care. This hospital is truly an illusion of good healthcare.

Do you have a death wish? Then this hospital is for you! Please for the love of anything or anyone, do not get treated here. Do not place your loved ones here. If they are there now, GET THEM OUT! This hospital is where you do to DIE, not get better. They will do procedures that only enable a slow and painful death. Who the heck has ever died from a bladder infection that was the due negligence of nurse and pointless, empty IVs. Majority of nurses should be ashamed of themselves and how the treat people and their hygiene themselves. Flirting with doctors and staff hours on end but god forbid you do the work around your patients. May god have mercy on the patient's souls who have died here and are currently still here.

This is the worst hospital!!! The triage nurse was very rude. I told him I've had pain spreading through out my body and he said I've been standing in line so basically saying that I was lying and then asked me what he should write in the computer... I wanted to tell him that is his job not mine. Then they sent me to the Ozone where the doctor came in and told me I needed blood work. I also have a needle phobia so I get pretty anxious when they take my blood so when the nurse came in I told her that and I asked her to use a butterfly needle which is smaller so she agreed. As she was looking around and feeling my arms for a vein she could see I was getting anxious so she said I was making her nervous so she went to call someone else. I don't think any nurse should say that. So another nurse came in and I told her the same thing and she asked me what my phobia was and my husband told her and she said ok well I don't like needles either but why the phobia so anyways I asked her to use the butterfly needle and she said she's gonna use the biggest needle because butterfly needles are to short. I think that's very unprofessional and inappropriate to say to a patient who has a phobia of needles..so anyways we wanted 4 hours for blood test results and the doctor didn't know what was wrong. So big waste of time!!! I will never go back!!!!

Worst hospital ever! Was in the waiting room for an hour someone threw up and it wasn't not cleaned! Waited 6 hours and went to 4 different waiting rooms... Came a second time and was told there was only 1 doctor for two different wards. Go to a different hospital and save your self some time
