I was a patient at the Ottawa Civic Hospital in October 2016. I was improperly given atypical antipsychotic drugs. The drugs were Risperdal & Abilify. Risperidal currently has a $2.2 billion lawsuit against its makers Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen Pharmaceuticals Inc. for improper marketing of this dangerous drug to both children, adolescents & the elderly.

I was given this drug for what they claimed was a “psychotic episode”. I was also given no warning of the nature & powerful negative side effects this drug creates both while on it & coming off it.

Ever since, I’ve had adverse side effects such as involuntary muscle movements, spasms, aches, mind numbness & solemnence, insomnia, trouble concentrating & memory loss, confusion, near-fainting, loss of breath & balance.

Ive tried contacting the original doctors to no avail, given no answers & am now dealing with body withdrawal effects.

Also in February 2017, I was given an injection of Invega-Sustenna against my will at the Ottawa General Hospital which has very similar side effects as above.

On Sunday afternoon my wife and I happily drove to perform a 3D ultrasound to find out the sex of our 16 week old. Unfortunately that is when we were told to rush to the hospital as there was no heart beat detected.  Upon arrival to Mackenzie Health we waited and waited and at 7-7:30pm the emergency doctor on call ( excellent) had booked us on ultrasound, much later around 10:45pm the doctor came to us and was wondering what we were still doing there as he thought that when ultrasound confirmed his brief ultrasound he did in the emergency that she would have already been taken care of. After he investigated what was happening, he came to us and apologized that the ultrasound technicians had left before the end of their shift, again he uttered, and also filed an internal complaint. He then scheduled us the following morning to come in and do a confirmation ultrasound and then would. E looked after. The following morning came and we did all that we were supposed to do. It has since been well over 36 hours and my wife whom is already having to deal with the loss, is continually being told that we are on waiting list. As I walk the hospital I see that there are 2 types of care providers.  Those who know the job the chose and truly care for what they are doing, however unfortunately I feel that there are several more of those who do little above expected, IF THAT.  Although apparently my wife is not in serious danger, there are several side affects which are associated with a miscarriage and the waiting I believe makes the mind work harder.

On Friday August 11, 2017 I was taken to the hospital by ambulance because I had a high heart rate and a clinic requested I go. I have a history of GI bleeds. I was there from 11:30 – 7:30. We told the attending physician I had vomited fresh blood the day before and the comment from Doctor Chowe was only once. He later discharged me. Then next morning I had to go back by ambulance and within 1 hour Dr. Shaik found the problem within 1 hour I have had a bleed and needed banding done and was in the hospital for 3 days. I cannot believe the hospital would employee such and incompetent individual.

No one answers the phone in the Rheumatology department at any extension.  I have left a message once per day for 3 weeks and they never return a call either at ext 5250 (where the phone just says leave a message and does not identify who you are leaving a message for) or at Dr. Keystone’s office who just has a message saying you can’t leave messages on this #.  It is total chaos!  I am a patient of Dr. Soowamber and was seen on June 30’th, supposed to be given an ultrasound appointment, a followup in August, and a consultation with  a surgeon.  I am in pain and nothing has been done to help me.

My boyfriend has been a patient at the hospital for a month now, for a surgery that was intended to only involve being an in patient for 5 days. Although the surgery team is really good, the quality of the post-op care has been really low. With a few exceptions (a few nurses and PCAs have been nothing but kind to both of us). In the first few weeks, for instance, he had nurses literally forcing him to eat and pee when he clearly didn’t feel the need for any of those things. And we had to fight really hard to let him manage his own diabetes. But just last night was when it got really out of hand. He had a surgery, and that surgery meant he had to fast all day, which is pretty rough on a diabetic. In order to accommodate that he was promised glucose via IV, and it didn’t happen. So by the time he got out of surgery he was hypo glycemic, and dealing with a neighbour that talks to himself none stop, all night long. He hasn’t slept properly for 48 hours because of it, and everyone is simply ignoring the problem.

I a filing a complaint against one of your Doctor’s @ CCH, Dr. Jean Emmanuel Augustin, Psychiatrist.  While he may have a degree as a Doctor, he may be SCIENCE/Psychology smart, but he his not HUMAN smart. He is not capable of applying his knowledge in psychiatry.  In my humble opinion he should not be any where near, or dealing with patients who are mentally unstable.  He is NOT a warm, kind, compassionate or empathetic human being.  Qualities I believe are essential when dealing with patients that are suffering mental issues.  I feel he does not possess the skills to deal with mentally fragile human beings, nor does he have the capacity or willingness to listen to the patients parents.  His entire approach was 100% cynical and 100% clinical.  He did/does not have the capacity to truly LISTEN, either to the patient or the very concerned parents.  On Monday July 10th our daughter tried to commit suicide.  While living @ her Father’s house in Chesterville, she was rushed to the Winchester Hospital.  On Tuesday July 11/17, she was taken from the WCH to the CCH & admitted to the psychiatric 4th floor.  To say Sarah’s psychiatric care on the the 4th floor has been exemplary is a total fallacy.  Tuesday July 11th when I went to CCH to see Sarah, she kept saying, “Mom, Mom, over and over again, how she did not like Dr. Augustin, or would she EVER EVER TALK TO HIM!!  She kept saying he was a mean man, and she was scared of him.How pray tale, if one has mental issues, just tried to commit suicide, can they OPEN UP to a Psychiatric Doctor that has as much kindness and TRUE CONCERN as a ROCK?  When Sarah told me all this Tuesday morning, I just thought she was being her usual, over dramatic self, looking for sympathy from her Mom.  About 2 hour later, while her Father and I were escorted to a room for a talk, as we passed through the nurses station, Sarah’s Father and I did see a Doctor there.  In my own mind, I thought, “If this is the Doctor Sarah is talking about, then…….I totally get it.  I totally understood Sarah’s misgivings about opening up to a Doctor, that is sooooo unapproachable.  I saw it with a glance.  Call me ridiculous/strange, etc. does not matter.  There is a thing called GUT instinct!!!!!  My gut is usually 99% correct.  A human being that is suffering from extreme mental issues needs to be able to RELATE to a professional, that……..actually cares, and……..actually shows love, compassion and empathy.  If someone has just tried to kill themselves, do you really think a Doctor with the compassion of a STONE, is the right one for a patient to deal with??  We had a meeting with Dr. Augustin on Friday July 14th, we also had another one today July 25th, and………I still do not trust the man, nor do I believe, he is capable of being a good Psychiatrist.  Today at our meeting it was brought up (fact) that Sarah’s Father and wife have been doing their UTMOST to get Sarah into the ROH. Last week while her Father and I were in her room, her Father asked that she sign a form, that could greatly expedite her transfer to the ROH.  Sarah refused.  Before today’s meeting, Sarah told her Father and I today, that Dr. Augustin said it was blackmail!!!!!  Really?????  Today when Sarah’s Father, myself, Sarah, Dr. Augustin and the Social Worker where in the conference room I said to him,” I don’t think what you said to Sarah was appropriate. Her Father, I and her Step Mother only want to get her help.  For you to say it is blackmail is not professional, and as a psychiatrist, you should not being saying that to a patient.”  Dr. Augustin then said, “Then file a complaint.” So…..I am!!!  He has been NO NO NO HELP to Sarah, soooooo it falls unto her parents.  What the wise Doctor has never seemed to GRASP!!!! it that we as her parents who have been dealing with her mental health issues for 11 years now!! We have done all that we can, but we both know that we are not capable of helping our child anymore.  We are looking for DOCTOR’S and truly concerned health professionals that will get our daughter out of the darkness and into the light.  While Dr. Augustin looked down his nose at us today when both of us said for the SECOND TIME, that……..we just can’t take her back to live with us, I would think if he was a TRUE DOCTOR, he would understand how much we have gone through, and……..we do LOVE OUR DAUGHTER, but we are just not equipped to deal with her mental health issues.  So sad, too bad, that Dr. Augustin, as a Doctor, takes our daughter’s life and care so flippantly!!!

My ex husband and were separated but very close friends and cared about each other and got along great for our daughters sake. He visited the RVH probably a dozen times, perhaps more? Or less, I am not sure, for years, as he had COP lung disease and he was having issues with his breathing. He had a tumour in his lungs they knew that, and it was growing. We were separated because he had a dependency on pain medication fed to him from his family doctor here in Barrie. This doctor wrote hundreds of scripts for pain medication at the time, his reception said “weekly”. Anyways, that was the reason for the separation, but the tumour in his lung had nothing to do with his growing dependency on opioid like painkillers. Yet his family dr and RVH ignored his lung issues, and he was unable to obtain a family doctor in Barrie at that time there was a shortage.

Perhaps because Christie Cadotte, 38, a former doctor recruiter in Barrie wasn’t doing her job, just being a criminal, who knows why they had Dr shortages at that time. So my husband was ignored, for a few years and his tumour grew to the size of a grapefruit in the meantime.

Eventually he did get help and he did have the tumour removed, and piece of his lung. But while he was being treated with contempt from RVH staff, who’s nurses sometimes accused him of “drug seeking” when he went because of his failing health. The tumour was allowed to grow. The years he went through that, he has issues with breathing and he could only sleep sitting up. If he lay down the tumour affected his breathing. I believe because of that tumour he developed pretty serious heart disease and that, coupled with more medications and now methadone for his pill addiction, coupled with the benzodiazepine’s and every kind of anti anxiety medication that can dream up, he then had deadly heart disease and had to have a 14 hour life saving heart operation in Toronto. At the Peter Monk Centre. They saved his life.

A year later right after he spent Christmas with us, something terrible started with his heart. He was gasping for breath, and I was frightened for his health again. I brought him to emergency in Barrie  and my ex HATED RVH but we went, we met the cardiologist who was great, thank you Dr D, my ex was doing good everything seemed like it was going to be okay. My ex explained to the cardiologist he did not want to be treated at RVH but could he please go to Newmarket? The Dr said yes, and I agreed. Everybody I know has only been treated very poorly and they have made nearly fatal mistakes too many times with everybody I know.

The next day I was at work and I could not reach my ex by phone, when I went to see him at RVH he was so OVERMEDICATED he could not even speak to me. He was going in and out of consciousness and I told the nurses he was over medicated! I should have stayed with him but when the closed the hospital at closing hour, January 2016, I left. When I was leaving, I noticed the male nurse removed the alert of the item that they leave on his finger to monitor his pulse or whatever it is. I asked him to put it back on and to please check on him (my ex) often. I heard after I left he was seeking help and fell on to the floor. I do not know what happened, why they gave him so much medication, but they called me at 4 am to tell me he had passed away. And I had to go collect his belongings. Apparently they gave him narcan and he became highly agitated and then they gave him a little bit more of what they had given him earlier he went into a cardiac arrest and they called for a code blue and he passed away at 48.

I feel the years he went to the emergency at the RVH and he was either dismissed, ignored, or was treated in a patronizing manner caused real damage to his health, his lungs his hearts. I find them that way with my mother who has been battling breast cancer for 25 years. And it is metastasised, but the cancer is sleeping right now. I just find people from the ambulance to some people who do intake to be terribly rude, cold, its like they are all missing a gene called common sense and have such terrible burden with their jobs they are so patronizing I can not STAND THE PLACE. The volunteers are lovely but in the blinged out super mall of a hospital I recommend avoiding the place if at all possible. RVH is NOT equipped or prepared for ongoing chronic disease treatment. You are better off trying to find a alternative treatment and alternative medicine doctor. Although I am sure they are great for acute injuries, broken bones etc. Just try to avoid RVH for anything outside of that. You will wait for up to 10 hours in a waiting room for a dismissal and probably a condescending attitude from the staff there.

I avoid that place and I hope I never have to go there myself ever, except to visit a sick friend and I will always encourage that friend to get the hell out of there. I just do not like many of the nurses attitudes etc. They need some kind of support themselves to deal with patients emotionally perhaps.

  • Currently waiting for my 8 yr old son to be seen by the doctor. We’ve been waiting 4 hours already, for a possible tick bite. I know not an emergency but he doesn’t have a family doctor because we’re a military family that moves a lot but we’ve been here 2 years and health care connect is a useless waste of money. 4 hours is a long time to wait for an 8 yr old.

i sat in the emergency room for 10 hours with my mom on friday june 31 , as she was experiencing very severe shaking and disorientating stability in her body , she was rushed to the General in an ambulance only to wait there in that same state for 10 hours , all  the while the nurse at reception was telling her that she was next to be seen , time and time again she waited while hearing the same story , We are waiting for a bed the nurse added , in a way that made us feel like we were a bother to her . I guess i don’t understand why if the problem is that there are not enough beds available why the patients can’t be seen in the waiting room by a doctor ?We ended up leaving the hospital after ten hours of painful waiting and many lies told , the final straw was when we were told for sure that we were next , only to watch another patient called in again before us , with only a minor injury . I can’t believe the poor and unprofessional behavior of the workers at the Hamilton General Hospital, my mom is 73 years of age and a lovely woman , i can’t remember when she was ever so disrespected by another human being straight  to her face ….this  is disgusting to have to go through all this in our great country of Canada

I called 911 and was taken to RVH with crippling back pains. I was treated nice by the paramedics but they didn’t offer me to lay down on a stretcher for comfort, I was put in the chair I stead. It was a very painful trip to say the least. The paramedic listened to my symptoms and said it sounded like a kidney stone.

I was put in a wheel chair and brought in where I was quickly registered at emergency triage but then put into a waiting room where I was left alone, crying, and in obvious pain. I was shivering and so I wheeled myself to another section to grab a blanket to cover up.

When I was finally brought in and put on a bed I was told I would be going for a scan and an ultrasound. They also said I would get a catheter put in to relieve pressure and Tylonel for the pain. Several hours went by, many unsuccessful trips to the bathroom and crying saying I just want to go pee and still nothing.

After 2 failed attempts to put an IV in (not their fault, my veins are uncooperative and it’s common, they finally got the IV in, she told me it would be bruised (oh yes it’s bruised) and then I laid down while they attached fluids to hydrate me. Shortly after, the fluids were stopped and I was taken for a scan. I was returned to my room where they did not reconnect my fluids. I waited a while and then they brought me Tylonel and reconnected my IV.

I finally managed to fall asleep (I honestly do not know how long I was asleep) but I was woken by the doctor (Dr. Waterman) where she asked me how I was feeling g and if there was pain. I told her no pain. She said the stone passed into my bladder because there was no sign of it on my scan and she wrote me a prescription for something to help with urine flow and sent me home. The following morning I woke up at 5:01am in excruciating pain again. I felt like it was starting all over again. I woke again at 6:01am & again at 7:01am, that’s when I contacted my boss and told him I was in no shape to come into work. Shortly after that I received a call from a Doctor from the ER asking how I was feeling g. I told him what I was going through,he then asked if I received a prescription for an antibiotic. I told him I hadn’t and he told me I had to come back to the hospital.

I went back to emerge where I was subjected to more blood work which left me in tears because I was already sore from the needles before, again my veins weren’t cooperating and I had 2 attempts before it worked.

I was then taken to where I got an ultrasound and then returned to a chair section (I wanted to lay on the floor I was in so much pain). I was then told I should have been given an antibiotic for the infection in my kidneys and the ecoli infection in my bladder. If I had gotten all this on the first visit I wouldn’t be suffering this bad today. Thanks Dr. Waterman, you put me through Hell. I feel like I’m dying. :'( How can you forget to prescribe an antibiotic when there is an infection present?

 

The nursing staff were super caring and sympathetic to my situation on June 10th but when dealing with someone suffering with pain like that, bed…NEVER chairs please!

My daughter was in an accident this evening, June 7th 2017. She was assessed at the scene and released, with me having to sign that she was not being brought to the hospital but that should she present with a headache, pains etc to take her to emergency immediately. We did that. When we got there, the hospital was quite quiet so one can only assume that they were not as busy as some nights.

We arrived at emerg at 10:00pm, at midnight my daughter was experiencing more pain and the headache was becoming more severe. I proceeded to go to the nurses station to see how long it would be before she was seen. I stood there for at least 5 minutes before the two nurses and a doctor even noticed I was standing there. When I asked the question, they looked at me, said that all the charts on the wall were before her and said that there were people that have been waiting for 3 hours before we arrived.

Now I explained to them what was happening, to which they responded with a non caring or compassionate response, and again told me that others have been waiting for 3 hours. My response was that an accident victim, with more pressing injuries is not deemed a priority? They looked at me like I had ten heads.

When I returned to my daughter and told her about the situation and wait time, we agreed to leave to go to a more efficient hospital that would take her injuries more seriously and we left.

This would not have been so dramatic had it not been for the 3 other waiting patients left emerg without being seen as well because of the same reason of the wait, two of which were young children under the age of two presenting with illnesses.

People that were waiting in rooms to be seen, were also making comments about the wait, especially when they look out of the assessment room to the nurses station and see that they are engrossed in conversation that has nothing to do with a patient, but that of personal content.

I am appalled that this is allowed to continue, and have seen this many times in the past, which is why I do my best to avoid going to RVH unless it is of an urgent and time sensitive matter. Tonight again proves to me that the staff working in the “Orange” treatment area are not there to do the job they are qualified to do, but for a paycheck and socialization with fellow employees and doctors.  Why they considered my daughter as non urgent is beyond me under the conditions and what she was presenting with.

RVH has a bad name for being incompetent and uncaring with patients, being seen talking about their personal lives at the nurses station rather then doing the job they are paid to do. It is completely disgusting that this is happening, and should we find out her injuries are as severe as we think they are, I will be hiring a lawyer for malpractice and ensure the nurses are reported to the CNO for non compliance of their Code of Ethics.

RVH needs to get rid of these nurses and staff members that refuse to do the job they have been trained and hired to do. Cases of this nature can go from non life threatening to life threatening in a blink of an eye.

From the time we left triage, we did not see another medical professional attempt to check on my daughter. RVH is a disgrace to the medical field and needs to change. Five hours plus before you are seen when head, back and knee injuries are reported and presented is completely unacceptable. A concussion is a serious injury, but this hospital like their demeanour and attitude towards their patients show absolutely no mannerisms for patients, but instead their efforts are poured into co workers and each other.

If you hear someone make a joke about only go to RVH if you want to die, know its true…by the time you are seen and assessed properly, blood tests and other tests that will indeed follow, know that you will most likely be dead.

My daughter was admitted to the hospital due to attempted suicide she is just 16 years old. Doctors require my consent for treatment, Nobody notified us of this treatment. Not even the mother. Being as the hospital requires my consent this is medical malpractice and we will be seeking legal counsel. It is against the law to treat her without informing me of such treatment.

Yesterday afternoon I was brought to the hospital by ambulance for an eye injury. My health card was with the paramedics and they handed it off to hospital staff when I arrived. Once I was home later that evening I realized that it had not been returned to me and called the hospital to inquire, and they said it couldn’t be found. My husband went there last night to ask the nurses and search more but there was no luck. This morning I returned again, and when I asked the emergency staff about it being lost, a staff member responded that “it’s valuable and someone took advantage of it” upon learning that it was a red and white health card, leaving me no choice but to believe that it was stolen by hospital staff. This is incredibly unprofessional, unethical, and a great inconvenience for me now having a barrier in recieving the medical care I need for this emergency. Today’s comments from the emergency staff suggest that this is not an unusual occurrence, which is deeply troubling. I will not be returning to this hospital for medical care.

I too had an awful experience with Dr. Beshay and Dr. Shamim.  I have Crohn’s Disease and had been hospitalized for it, in fact was hospitalized for 6 days in November with the chance of having to have surgery due to the development of a fistula.  A couple months later in January/February I had another flare-up and went immediately to the hospital (Emergency) as instructed in hopes of getting it under control and not suffering more damage.  I was seen by Dr. Shamim who was dismissive, rude and seemed unconcerned with my history and present state.  I was given a pain killer and sent home around midnight with a prescription which I had to get filled.  I was instructed to come back in the morning for a MRI.  I was in shock that I wasn’t kept overnight considering my history.  The painkiller eased the pain which in her opinion was reason to send me home?  The next day I got a call from the hospital saying that my MRI would be in 5 days.  Upset by this timeline and  in extreme pain called my doctor who told me to get back to the Hospital and tell the desk I am back for an MRI and needed to tell them to connect me to the GI on duty who would be expecting me.  I was admitted.  Dr. Beshay came into my room, closed the doors and said to me “who told you, you  could ask for a GI, that’s not how things work here…I make the decisions not you?”  I told her my doctor had sent me back with specific instructions and if as she contacted his office the information would be confirmed.  She said she was not allowed to contact a specialist.  She was condescending and unprofessional.  She kept standing with her arms folded staring at me and when I spoke would start sneering.  I felt unsafe and vulnerable and was desperate for someone to come to my aid.  She then proceeded to examine me but said  “I know I am not a specialist so I hope you are Ok with this” in a very condescending manner.  Later she came into my room and said “I contacted the GI you said was waiting for you which I am  not allowed to do, thankfully he is a good man and was willing to talk to me and told me he knows nothing about you and was given no instructions regarding your MRI”  while doing this she pretended to be holding a phone receiver. She then sent me for an MRI and afterwards sent me home with a prescription for Entocort which I had told her was not working for me.  The prescription itself was unable to be filled because she left out key information on the prescription.  I was left to pull out my own IV.  I was so desperate to get out of Emergency I didn’t even care that blood was everywhere, I cleaned it up with baby wipes I had in my purse and ran out as fast as I could.  I phoned my doctor and his receptionist told me I was suppose to be admitted after my MRI and the GI was in fact waiting for me and had been for hours, she had not contacted him.  She ordered her own MRI without contacting him?  According to my MRI results and my GI I was in active flare-up and should not have been sent home by either doctor.  I will never go to the Emergency at this hospital if these two doctors are on duty, I will call ahead.  I will go to either Credit Valley or The Burlington hospital.   In my opinion they are not concerned with patient care and are incompetent and cruel.  They made me fell  like I had no right to be there and was a waste of their time.  I have since filed a complaint with the Ontario College of Physicians and Surgeons.  They are currently under investigation.  I have always received good care at the hospital and have never had to complain but,  knew what happened to me was not right and am grateful that there are organizations that help patients who have been mistreated.  I am disappointed with the hospital itself for not reaching out to me after I sent them the copy of the letter I sent to the OCPS, in fact it has been 5 months.  By not doing so it sends a message that patient experience is not a concern to them.

Concerning my daughter inlaw AND grand-daughter Robyn McClean and Mya Phillips.  I am the custodian for my grand-daughter whom was apprehended Dec 14, 2016.  Postpartum dept Paula (don’t have a last name) told me what the conditions were, along with the social worker from the CAS Danielle.  My complaint is one of the conditions was Robyn was to have a mental assessment done by Dr. Bami.  I have a 6 month agreement with the CAS and within 2 weeks, Mya will be 6 months old AND NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE!!  Numerous phone calls have been made to find out when she can be seen by Dr Bambi, only to be told another patient requires his expertise more than her.   Also Dr. Garay sent in a referral and STILL NOTHING!!!!  It is imperative that these conditions are met for Robyn to have her daughter returned to her care.  I can NOT take on another grand-daughter, I am 63 years old and I really feel you are setting Robyn up to fail!!!  Not only is this imperative, her mental health is at stake should she lose a child to foster care.  If there is any compassion in your hearts, Can you please check into this matter as it is also tearing me apart,

Wife went in for pneumonia, was diagnosed and told she will have a prescription for antibiotics and a pain killer she can rotate with Tylenol every 3 hours , doc never wrote the pain killers down . Now she is in agonizing pain can’t sleep or eat to take the antibiotics ! Called back 6 or 7 times to be hung up on and treated like absolute garbage ! It’s disgusting how they treat people and offer no help unless you are there in person , even offered to come back for another 5! HOUR wait but nope basically called my wife a drug addict . Now I fully understand that there are probably cases like this all the time with some people as desperation sets in but my wife is a successful 27 year old school teacher who has never done a drug in her life I’m appauled by the service of these people and you should be ashamed of them all ! I have names of doctors and nurses if interested in a follow up , I’m sure that won’t happen because you probably put on a good show at work to but deep down you don’t give a shit .  They need to rethink there career if that’s how they ASSUME all people are . Have a wonderful day .

My husband has just been diagnosed with stage four lung cancer that has spread to his bones. He has been seen twice by Dr Cheema. We understand that Dr Cheema is new but she desperately needs to learn a bedside manner. She does not take the time to answer questions and doesn’t realize that this is new to some people like ourselves. B4 i file an official complaint to Dr Reingold is there anything that can be done? Tks in advance, regards, Sue
