I was born and raised in Penticton, worked in the hospital kitchen as a teenager and had my youngest son in this hospital. Many years later, now living in Calgary, I have had to avail the care of the amazing specialists, doctors and nurses on two separate occasions, while visiting family. The latest was just a few weeks ago, utilizing the hemo dialysis clinic three times for a week. This was my first time receiving dialysis at another clinic and had a bit of anxiety prior to my treatment. I was treated like a regular patient and quickly put at ease. I would like to thank the nurses for the exceptional care I received. While it was a smaller clinic than the one I attend in Calgary, the professionalism was the same. It was a great experience thanks to the staff. Hope I get to meet them again.
My grandmother was admitted to the 5th floor ward. The nurses and doctors were amazing. You could see they were very busy but they always had smiles and were very compassionate and kind, helped where they were able too and made her feel very comfortable. Very thankful for all of the staff who was a part of her recovery.
The Labor and Delivery department was second to none, I had all the attention and care of the nurses and doctors. Nurses specifically I met last night were amazing and I am extremely grateful for the work they do and love they put in it. Minus one star for ER who were responsible to pass down the important details of my situation to the specialist two days ago who then, lacked key information when she created the subsequent plan. It may have played a role in how big a hell I had to go through last night. And big thanks also to an OR team who got called in early and ended my suffering.
My wife recently had surgery at Penticton Regional hospital. The pre-surgical nurses were wonderful. Very caring, personable and most competent. The surgical nurses, the surgeon and anesthesiologist were also excellent and did a great job of reassurance prior to surgery. I rated a 4 as there is no 4.5. We had to return to emergency a day after surgery this past Wednesday and that experience wasn’t particularly great, but when we had to go back again Thursday evening the emergency team that looked after her was absolutely Superior! In all, I think the people who are served by Penticton Regional hospital are fortunate to have such caring, competent medical specialists in all domains. And while I understand not everyone may have had the same positive experience we had, given the current trends in other locations, these folks are doing very well! Thank you to all the staff at PRH who did such a great job of looking after her!
Called Telus health, they told me to go to emergency. I go and the doctor tells me it’s not an emergency and I’m wasting their time. I’ve had 3 runs of different antibiotics and my infection won’t clear. 2 doctors told me that another dose would cause problems. What does this doctor do, prescribed me the same one I had before. Then told me to get blood work. I waited for 2 hours and it wasn’t busy. I ended up leaving without them. The doctor was so rude.
