Prais­ing qual­ity of care at hospi­tal

The Compass - - OPINION -

Dear ed­i­tor,

In times of government cut­backs and staff short­ages in the health sys­tem, com­pas­sion and great care is alive and well at Car­bon­ear Gen­eral Hospi­tal.

From Feb. 4-9, 2013 I was a pa­tient there. I had surgery and was the re­cip­i­ent of noth­ing less than the best care.

To Dr. Robert Ran­dell, I say, “The day you de­cided to be­come a doc­tor the Good Lord looked down and smiled ap­prov­ingly, be­cause he al­ready knew you not only had heal­ing hands, you also had a heal­ing heart.” A heart­felt thank you for your kind­ness and care. To the nurses of the fifth floor, I have noth­ing but the great­est re­spect and grat­i­tude for your com­pas­sion and care.

Thank-you to the vol­un­teers and house­keep­ing and the lab­o­ra­tory tech­ni­cians. Th­ese staff met each day with a smile and kind words for me. God bless you all and may changes make your jobs a lit­tle eas­ier.
