Ratings for Toronto General Hospital
In 1997, I went to this hospital following a Car accident- they rushed me through and gave me so much pain medications that I had no idea what hurt and what did not, I should say that this was a major accident. I was discharged and told to go see my GP and he will send you to ave x/rays. Within 4 days I began having seizures and became severely photosensitive, I then saw a Neurologist at Mt Sian (5 days after the accident) who failed to to send me for Mri etc, until 11 months post the accident - it turned out that I suffered a severe concussion with positive signs of having a Traumatic Brain Injury. The CPSO is claiming that all hospitals are Trauma centers which in fact is completely UNTRUE, in fact when you call Metro Toronto Ambulance services they will tell you that the Trauma hospital in Toronto i s is Sunny Brook- The CPSO is aiding the doctor and the hospital is covering up gross negligence. Shame on TGH and Shame on Mt Sian.
Recently I was taken to TGH following a reaction to a prescription given to me just 3 days prior - The emerge doctor ordered all the test but she (excellent) had to go off shift and the Dr who took over came back and said that the scan was clear, but when I was having the scan which needed a contrasting dye - I had a reaction to the dye and became very confused and very red and flush. The DR and nurses rush in and I was give something to counter react the reaction and taken back to my room, the scan technician came by to see if I was ok and was quickly rush out of the room. When the nurse came back she was very arrogant and asked if I needed any pain meds and I asked for Advil because I am very sensitive to the active ingredient in Tylenol known as "Acetaminophen" - The nurse became very angry and arrogant and insisted that I could not be possible that I could be allergic or sensitive to Tylenol to which I corrected her and told her I was not allergic or sensitive to Tylenol which was the brand name, which is a big difference and as a emergency nurse she should have known this, The DR came back and said that the scan was clear and he diagnosed me as having a rare disease which is like "phantom pain" and more of a Mental Health issue. When I questioned his diagnosis he became angry and threw his hands in the air and said well he does not know. The diagnosis that the emerge DR came up with requires DNA genetic testing which never took place. When I told the DR how does he explain the vomiting and diarrhea he became even worst - It turns out the emerge Dr did not know what he was talking about and if he had checked the prescription meds that I was taking would have explained the problem. My GP the next days confirmed that the emerge Dr was "WRONG" and it would have been impossible to arrive at that diagnosis with out extensive testing over a 3 year period. What really bothers me is that NO One addressed the reaction to the contrast dye and when I was given the discharge note it makes NO mention to the reaction I had. What took place is a deliberate "cover up" on the part of the emerge DR and the hospital. Shame on the TGH.

horrible staff. where do they get the nurses here? they must have friends and family that get hired because they're all RUDE RUDE RUDE! please learn some bedside manner. if you hate your job so much, get another one! i'm sure there are compassionate nurses out there looking for work. do not go here if you want to be treated like a human being. go here if you want to be treated like an animal

my husband was in for a week in 2014 was the worst experience we have ever encountered. The nurses were unprofessional treated the family with no respect and spoke down to us. They were very rude. Also the cleaning staff came cleaned the room while he was in the lounge and threw out things that they should not

The doctors brag that this hospital is world class.. I guess none of these incompetent doctors ever been anywhere else in the world. Hoping ministry of health step in and do complete audit of every process and procedure that goes on in this hospital and provide unbiased report so everyone knows how terrible this place is

I used to love Toronto General because they had a fully staffed IV Team..NOW nothing..CEO needs to revamp essential services. There is no more IV Team..they were the wonderful nurses that had expert training to start IVs, and troubleshoot picc lines..I remember these nurses, but I cant seem to find out where there working :( Primrose, Rita, Carol, They were my favorite nurses, they always new how to find my veins, they were gentle caring and knew what to do. Now there gone? Thehospital sucks without good nurses that are experts. Can anyone tell me where they are..so they can start my IV's? Im a hard stick..I got admitted to Humber-Finch site..no one could start my IV. Then went to Brampton Civic Hospital--they poked 10times;( SMH has 1 team left.All the other hospitals have nothing..I want those nurses back..or if you can help me find them. Thanks so far I give Toronto General a poor rating..cuz they cant get my veins--they have trouble because they have new nurse working with no exp

On October 19, 2011 my husband received his double lung transplant at Toronto General Hospital, The doctors and nurses and all of the staff were wonderful, they are very patient and he never had to wait very long if he called the nurse, he was in for 21 days, and by the time he was released on Nov 7th we felt like we were leaving our family behind. When my husband has clinic appointments there, we make it a point to look up some of the nurses that cared for him, just to say hi and thanks again for a comfortable stay. Special thanks to Natalie head nurse on the seventh floor recovery, you are a beautiful person and we will never forget your beautiful spirit. We love all of you, and may God bless your caring attitude.

Albeit expensive for a 1 night stay (yes, you can stay at the Sutton Hotel for less than here), if you have to stay after surgery or for observation - the hospital is well equipped, clean, a bit confusing (got lost a few times) but has fully functining washrooms, clean hallways, caring staff and I'd recommend in a heart beat. Thanks for making my first (and hopefully only) hospital stay a good one!
