Praising quality of care at hospital
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.
