Hos­pi­tal staff com­mended

Townsville Bulletin - - Voice Of The North -

I RE­CENTLY had to go to the Townsville Hos­pi­tal for a week and wish to com­ment on my ex­pe­ri­ence.

From the am­bu­lance crew who picked me up to the pa­tient dis­charge driver who bought me home, the ex­pe­ri­ence was a pos­i­tive one.

Apart from the fact that I was in hos­pi­tal, which noone en­joys, the staff were cheer­ful, pa­tient and willi ng and I saw doc­tors, phys­io­ther­a­pists ,occu - pa­tional ther­a­pists, and a so­cial worker.

All of these peo­ple treated me with re­spect and could not do enough to help.

I was amazed at how cheer­ful some of the staff who worked a dou­ble shift still man­aged to be , al­though they must have been ex­hausted.

So to the staff on EMU Ward and Med­i­cal Ward 2, thank you for mak­ing what would have been a fright­en­ing ex­pe­ri­ence into a most en­joy­able one.

To the knock­ers of the pub­lic sys­tem, I say you do not know how lucky we are. MAR­GARET PILCHER,

West End.
