Bless the step-down unit an­gels

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - THE SOCIAL PAGE -

I want to ex­press my grat­i­tude to the fab­u­lous nurses in the step-down unit at the Health Sciences Cen­tre. My mom, Theresa Cooke, has been in the unit twice in the past six months.

Her phys­i­cal health was not the great­est, but the nurses man­aged to make her time there pleas­ant.

I can­not say enough pos­i­tive things about Sueli and the ex­tra­or­di­nary care she pro­vided, not only for my mother, but for all the pa­tients.

Melissa, Norma and Anna are just a few more of many nurses who stand out in my mind. They al­ways have smiles on their faces and go out of their way to make pa­tients com­fort­able.

At a time when we of­ten hear neg­a­tive things about the health-care sys­tem, I thought it was nec­es­sary to rec­og­nize and commend the pos­i­tive peo­ple who work in this field.

A big thank you goes out to mom’s sur­geon, Dr. Sri­nathan, for his steady hands, ex­cel­lent bed­side man­ner, on­go­ing care and sup­port.

Thank you so much to Sueli and the rest of the step-down nurses.

Bless those an­gels.
