Ratings for Toronto East General Hospital
What a terrible facility!!!! the nurses are out of this world....rude, inattentive, ignorant and just down right horrible.
The emergency dept is great but once you are admitted the level care is different. i dont have anything good to say....i cant understand the nurses...is this what they are taught at school or maybe they need to go back to school because most of them are in their mid fifties and early sixties.....

The nurses are the worst iv ever seen in my life. I cannot believe how rude and ignorant they can be. I can't wait til one of them break a leg or arm and get the same treatment they provide others. :)

The nurses there are so rude, and extremely extremely inattentive. They say they're busy, but they sit and chat with each other at the desk, while completely ignoring the patients and their families. They make your already scary and stressful time 100 times worse. I thought nurses were supposed to help people, not make them feel like garbage.

I wish that it was possible to give a rating in the negative. My father was admitted to Toronto East General after a stroke. He was prone to wandering (due to dementia) and I had told the staff this. I got a call in the middle of the night from a nurse saying that my Dad was missing from his room. When I got to hospital I found out that my Dad was returned to the hospital by a cab driver who would not let my Dad enter his cab because my Dad was still attached to his IV pole. My Dad was sent to St. Mike's for tests without my consent or knowledge. When I went to East General to visit my Dad the nurses on staff did not know where my Dad was! (By the way once I found out where my Dad was I went immediately to that hospital (St. Mike's) and pleaded with the staff to keep my Dad. Staff at St. Mike's told me that my Dad had to return to his hospital of origin. Staff at St. Mike's did require my consent before each procedure)
Once back at East General my Dad started having seizures and the staff there were supposed to bathe him in bed. He was given a shower in a stall by mistake where he had a seizure. In the days before my Dad's death I entered his room to see an assistant trying to feed my unconscious Dad food on a spoon.
Ombudsman in Ontario are unable to manage hospital complaints so the highest I could take this was the Patient Service Representative. The PSR looked into this. We looked at my Dad's record and parts were missing and he had signed for procedures after being deemed "incompetent to make decisions" by hospital staff.
At the time I was 6 months pregnant with no family to help in Toronto other than my husband. We stayed with my Dad all day and left just to catch some sleep or eat. So all of this nonsense happened with very attentive family members. I can't imagine how they treat seniors without family.

Worst hospital in toronto..maybe even Canada! Ironically, I was born in this hospital. Over the years I feel like it's gotten worse. The staff are completely ignorant and just down right rude..couldn't care less if your dying infront of them. Most if not all the doctors there are incompetent and seem like they weren't educated properly in their field. Lots of student MDs at this hospital. I find that most of their opinions are complete guesses. They make me feel as if they are running back and forth to check google for answers!!! If you can avoid it, avoid this place like the plague!

The patients are neglected and the bedside manner is highly unprofessional.

I had a stroke in 2012. I live alone and don't talk to anyone. My headache had started Friday and by Sunday the headache was more painful than I've heard of. In ER the nurse who spoke to noticed I was speaking in 'word salad-fruit salad' and my face drooped on one side. I was sent to wait for someone to call me. 3 hours later ! I passed out then and woke in ICU. Who knew having a stroke wasn't too important

I had day surgery here, a cholecystectomy in 2010. Was very impressed with surgeon as well as nurses. Also very impressed with cleanliness of the hospital, especially given that it is an older building.
