I would like to publicly thank all those great people who cared for and about me during my recent stay in the Cowichan District Hospital. Firstly, the paramedics who transported me there. They were kind, gentle and very efficient.
Then in Emergency, I was treated quickly, with the doctor on duty explaining every move they were making and giving me X-rays and cat scan in a timely fashion. The nurses were capable, kindly people and cared for me well until I was taken up to ICU.
Up there, things were not easy but again, I had a prompt ultrasound and both doctors and nurses and their aides were kind and caring and, although I had little appetite, the food was very good and very nourishing. Once home the home support group also helped me enormously and I am so grateful to them all.
I give the service I got 95 per cent (for, as quoted in one of the Murdoch Mysteries series, “in this world, nothing is 100 per cent perfect.”)
