To the Editor,
Yet again we found ourselves indebted to some very special people at the end of last month.
To the staff of St. Joseph’s Hospital ER, we cannot thank you enough for caring for our daughter. Your calm, professional care does not get enough recognition or gratitude.
Many thanks also to the B.C. Ambulance critical care team who transported her to Nanaimo Regional General Hospital.
And for the team at Nanaimo Regional’s ICU, you guys were awesome. Namely Dr. Patterson, his assistant doctor (whose name we never got), Diane, Kala, Emma, Donna and the many other specialists and nurses involved. The care we received was second to none. We also realize that there are a multitude of backroom staff in our healthcare system who make it all possible and go unnoticed, so to you we also owe our gratitude.
