LETTERS: CMH staff went above and beyond during recent hospital stay

It's not often that we hear positive remarks about our medical system but I find it important to speak about the Cariboo Memorial Hospital.

It is not often that we hear positive remarks about our medical system but I find it important to speak about the Cariboo Memorial Hospital in Williams Lake, B.C.

I was sent to the emergency room on Dec. 8, 2015 via my general practitioner in 100 Mile House.

Upon arrival I mentioned who I was and was told we have been expecting you.

The male nurse registered me and sent my husband off to complete forms.

From the start of my journey in the ER late in the afternoon to surgery early the next day (rushed in) and then to ICU, I was treated with the utmost compassion and care from each and every member of the staff I met.

The team in each department went above and beyond what we’re used to from hospital staff, and I have been in many over the years.

My husband stayed with me during my stay in the ICU and he was treated the same way as I was.

If I ever have to be in a hospital again I will go to Cariboo Memorial Hospital if possible.

My husband and I would like to give a very grateful thank you to each and every one of the staff who helped me through my entire stay.
