Disappointed does not even begin to explain how awful my experience was at Miriam. A total shit hole of a hospital that lacked any kind of caliber or potential, an absolute shit hole- that’s really the only way to describe it. It’s shocking how little people working at the hospital actually care about the patients...

When you take a loved one to the hospital you hope for them to get better and will do anything to help them get there. My ailing mother in law has been in pain for months post her surgery and has had various instances of internal bleeding. Most of the times we would take her to our family physician who would then refer a specialist for her..

But this time we didn’t have time to wait around, she needed to be taken to the ER. We began discussing in the car which hospital was closer and believe it or not Miriam was the farthest away. But for some insane reason my sister in law believed that Miriam hospital got some crazy good reviews and so we needed to go there..

When we got there, we realized that the staff was not going to do anything- we had to ask for a wheelchair for her, wheel her inside, get all the formalities done while the staff just sat there doing nothing. Oh, my bad- they actually sit around and gossip with each other. The biggest stereotype of nurses being gossip queens is actually true at Miriam! If you press the call button they won’t respond and claim that it’s been broken for a while. They make all the excuses but never do any work...

When it comes to nutrition they will do whatever they feel like and not give food on time. My mother in law needs her dinner by 6 pm so when I told them about this they said they would take care of it. But guess what…they didn’t. Ugh. Whatever. I pushed them until she got her food by 7 pm. But to my surprise they were giving her fatty food with cheese. My mother has been having heart trouble for years now and is on a strict diet. So this was a clumsy move from the hospital...

Out of curiosity- what would’ve happened if something serious had happened to her, who takes responsibility for that? I wrote down everything wrong I saw and experienced at Miriam’s and have launched an official complaint to the higher authorities because I felt it was necessary they knew how their practice was being run. I know there’s no way I would ever bring another one of my family members here, but it’s important other people know what they’re getting into as well. My poor mother in law has now been shifted to Womens and infants and is looking much better, thank heavens!!!

You can never tell when you’ll have to wait and when you won’t – that’s just how hospitals work. You also can’t complain about how long a wait is at a hospital because there’s always someone in a more unfortunate state than you. Either way all I know is that the care one receives at Miriam’s is outstanding. They care grately for the patients so you know you’re in good hands.

They also try their best to handle all patients in a timely fashion, no one is given special treatment, the triage system is very much in place and everyone is very professional- they take their work seriously. They spoke to me very seriously about my treatment, what would be required, the medications and its side effects- everything I tell you. Not one piece of information was left untouched. It was a refreshing hospital experience.

The ER at Miriam’s is amazing! Been coming here for ages but never to the ER- this was the first time but I gotta say it was smooth af. Sure I had to wait for a bit but that’s at every hospital, you won’t get treated any differently here. The good thing is that the doctors are well qualified, the nurses know what they’re doing so there’s surety that you’ll survive.

Polite, sweet, caring, professional, sympathetic, empathetic… these are all synonyms that are NOT synonymous with Miriam Hospital. Everything is topsy turvy here. You’ll find that the patients are sweet and submissive and the doctors are super aggressive and mean. Just get this through your head: they don’t care about you. I literally heard one of the physicians telling an intern that they were not to make nice with the patients. Despite the severity of your condition I would recommend going anywhere else but here .you don’t want people treating you like s**t when you’re already feeling low .
