Thanks to our local hospital

I was able to watch a nursing station and the nurses were continually on the go for their entire 12-hour shift.

The week before Christmas I had to spend 96 hours in our Saanich Peninsula Hospital having a battery of tests and during that  stay it made me realize how fortunate we on the Peninsula are in having that wonderful hospital and it’s hard working staff.

I was able to watch a nursing station and the nurses were continually on  the go for their entire 12-hour shift. My care was excellent and the doctors who carried out the tests were informative and reassuring.

Back in September when my wife passed away in the palliative care, my daughter and I arrived at 6:30 a.m. to pay our last respects and someone had laid a large rose bud on my wife’s chest and that small gesture meant a lot to us and made us realize how lucky we are to have that institution here.

Rest assured my contribution to the Saanich Peninsula Hospital trust fund will be increased this year.

Thank you Saan Pen Hospital staff.
