Hos­pi­tal staff go be­yond call

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

I was re­cently was a pa­tient at the QEH in Char­lot­te­town. From the mo­ment I ar­rived by am­bu­lance un­til the time I was dis­charged, I re­ceived stel­lar care.

I saw hos­pi­tal staff go­ing far be­yond their of­fi­cial work load. Even though they were very busy, they al­ways had time for a lit­tle chat. They were at­ten­tive to my needs and did their very best to meet them. From a warm blan­ket to a dose of new med­i­ca­tion, they tended to me with love and pa­tience. Lis­ten­ing to their con­ver­sa­tions with each other and with their pa­tients con­vinced me that they al­ways put their pa­tients’ needs first.

I owe deep grat­i­tude to the Unit One staff. Be­ing a pa­tient is never easy; how­ever, they did their very best to make my stay as com­fort­able as pos­si­ble. I ap­pre­ci­ate it all from the bot­tom of my heart. Shirley Gorm­ley, Char­lot­te­town
