Pleasant experience at O’Connor Hospital- as always I must say. But it’s no surprise given I was born here 20 years ago. My parents live in the city and even though I moved out for college, coming back here feels so weird. Almost like I grew up here and all the employees know me by name. But gotta say, surprised at how the level of health care has not depleted even by a little. No matter how many times I’ve had to come here in the past my confidence in O’Connor has never been shaken and that’s because they are that good. Kudos on the new addition.

Always super friendly staff I could stay here all day. Very friendly security guards who greet you with a big smile. But it’s not just them, everyone else inside is just as helpful. Almost like the hospital’s first priority is helping other people. Very good motto indeed.

My 68 year old mother in law called me up late last night because she was feeling uneasy.
When I went to her place she was extremely dehydrated and feeling dizzy.
Even after two juice boxes she felt extremely dizzy so I took her to the ER at Connor.
Once she got in I heard a lot of shouting from outside.
They wouldn’t let me in but when I asked them what the matter was a nurse told me that she wouldn’t let them put in the IV.
Apparently her blood pressure had gone down so low that they couldn’t find a vein to poke the IV into.
After much efforts they finally managed to give her IV.
The shouting stopped and I started breathing again. After a few hours they came and woke me up saying I was fine to take her back home.
But when I saw her I knew she was still not well. Her eyes were red and her otherwise perfect posture was affected. SHOCKED.

Haven’t had the pleasure to see any department at O’Connor’s but the CT department. Came here literally just for my CT scan results but from what I could tell it’s a lovely place. Very friendly employees who will gladly engage in small talk and make you feel welcome. Very helpful staff who will help you with directions especially helpful to me. Nice!

The outpatient treatment is completely different from inpatient treatment. You want to know the funny part? I didn’t know there was a difference until very recently. They act like we (outpatients) are not as important as inpatients. Don’t get the same treatment, they managed to screw up mine and another friend of mine (also an outpatient)’s results. A simple mix up, they said. Meanwhile if the same happens to an inpatient it’s all I’m sorry sir, one second sir.

After careful speculation I came up with the conclusion that this hospital has a decent set of doctors working for it. The nurses and nursing students are very able but can’t stop talking all the time. Complained about this to their superiors, hopefully that will die down in a few days. Otherwise it’s a decent place to get surgery (of the hip and knee in particular). Speaking from personal experience.

There were too many red flags I knew the best thing to do was leave. Oconnor’s emergency department is just horrible. There’s no proper system in place, everyone just runs around and makes mistakes. Then they realize they’ve made mistakes and go the other way- that’s it. No apologies or anything. Forgive and forget. Only the patients find it hard to forget..

Fine so you’re disorganized. But then why so much attitude? For a system that doesn’t even work? The staff are so rude unlike any other hospital or organization I’ve seen that serves general public. No regard for human suffering and just lets you hang there. If you ask them a question they pretend like they don’t have to answer you. Just to test you. If you tell them you want something they pretend like they’re too good to get you to it so you better do it yourself. Even if its as simple as a cup of water.

When I first came in after a bike incident the ambulance team that brought me stopped at the entrance. It was the responsibility of the hospital employees to help take me off the stretcher onto the hospital stretcher, but the two security guards just stood there, staring at me like I was supposed to do it myself . Even though I’d clearly broken both my legs. I was screaming bloody murder because my entire body was killing me and all they could say when they saw me at the front desk was you;ll have to wait. Zero compassion, zero concerns for anyone else.

A gentleman waiting next to me in the waiting room had a young girl sitting beside him who was clearly in a lot of discomfort. When he approached the front desk and raised his voice ever so slightly the staff got very agitated and threatened to have him kicked out. Really? I’ve experienced bad hospital days but this hospital is just next level psycho.
