A month ago, I experienced a medical emergency that landed me in hospital — first in Kelowna General, then back to Royal Inland in Kamloops.
I must praise all staff involved for their dedicated service toward the high level of care I received in both hospitals.
Everyone — including ambulance paramedics, nurses, doctors, techs, lab and support services — present demonstrated such knowledge, compassion and dedication in their lines of work.
When something so unexpected and quite frightening comes along, the lasting impact of their actions are never forgotten.
I cannot speak for all patients, but my experience was one that makes me very proud and so thankful to the dedicated and hardworking people working in varying fields of health care.
I will never forget this event. Thank you to all for your outstanding care and compassion.
