My mother was admitted to Halifax’s ICU for treatment of blood clots in her lungs. She was an ICU patient for three days and a patient on the regular floor for nearly four days. The staff was exceptional. The ICU nurses were very friendly with her and constantly talked with her and cracked jokes; in short, they did everything to calm her down, and make her feel comfortable. The nurses on the floor were also wonderful. They took excellent care of her.

The nurses were very attentive and knew what my mother needed and got it for her even before she informed them. The doctors were a little bit restrained but still outstanding. They did not hesitate to come down, talk with her and tell her about the progress she made. They also updated me. Due to their excellent care, my mother was discharged much before then the anticipated discharge date. My family highly appreciates the care that my mother got here.

I had an excellent experience here when I visited it a few nights back. I had a fall and heard a snap. Worried that I might have broken my ankle, I went to the ER at around 2:00 AM. Despite it being an ungodly hour, the nurses and doctor took good care of me. My worst fears came true. I had broken my ankle. A cast was put, and surgery was fixed for the next day. The surgery went off well.

Very pleased with the quick and exceptional care that I received here

I am not sure if the nurses working in the ER even know the meaning of the word “triage.” I was there with my brother-in-law, who was having severe shortness of breath and a gnawing pain his chest. We waited in the ER for nearly four hours because the nurses did not realize the gravity of the situation.

I had called a nurse and informed her about my BIL’s situation, and she assured me that he would be taken back quickly. Well, that never happened. We were there for four hours. People who came after us were taken in quickly…there was a guy who had a minor cut on his hand. Guess what, he got priority before Ian….

Seeing his condition worsen, we decided to leave, and the nurse did not even notice us going. Ian was taken to another hospital where he had to be admitted to the ICU for better care…

F**K YOU Halifax Regional Hospital…..you deserve to be shuttered
