‘Bearable’ experience at Ridge Meadows Hospital
Editor, The News:
I had the unfortunate experience of visiting the Ridge Meadows Hospital emergency ward last Friday, when my six-year-old grand-daughter Lily fell and broke her arm.
From the time we entered the hospital till leaving it Saturday afternoon we were treated with care and respect.
My grand-daughter was in a lot of pain and obviously scared while waiting to be admitted, when a paramedic came up to us and offered her a stuffed bear.
After surgery to repair her arm, another bear, with a bandage on his arm, was tucked in beside her.
The nurses in the pediatric ward were awesome, explaining everything to her and making a traumatic experience somewhat bearable.
I would like to thank that paramedic for taking the time to comfort Lily, the nurses and doctors, everyone involved in the treatment of my grand-daughter, for all your professionalism, and most of all, for showing that you really do care.
