Guarding angels also known as the Nightingales

Chilliwack hospital should be commended for their care, letter writer says.

Everything in the health care profession is changing, except the needs for funds to meet today’s demands and be ready for tomorrow’s needs.

Today’s health care institutions face unprecedented changes. These changes involve new concepts in medical care and treatment, increasing specialization in services and equipment, development of service training programs, population growth and the changing sociological patterns.

Our health care staff in the Fraser Valley are wonderful, and are keeping up with all the new concepts in the areas of medical care and treatment.

On May 27, 2011, I was admitted to the Chilliwack Hospital located in Chilliwack, B.C. and immediately began treatment without delay. May stay was 13 day in the hospital.

It is with great pleasure that I take this opportunity to recognize the outstanding performance of all the staff at this hospital. Yes, yes, we do have guarding angels living and working in the Fraser Valley.

I was moved the NU#4 which is the surgical ward. I just wanted to take the time to say what a wonderful job all the staff did with me and the other patients in that ward. The staff on the surgical ward do fundraising on their time off, away from work. They called themselves the Nightingales. At their own cost, they posed and printed a cute calendar with all profits going to Relay for Life.

Also, a care aide named Kulvinder and her husband had a great idea; they wrote a cookbook on Indian cooking and again all profits go to the Relay for Life.

Those health care staff are really guarding angels.

The whole team was great their treatment, concern for my health and welfare as well as my comfort. A special thanks goes to Beverly, Tina, Theresa, Christian, the care staff and the nice daytime cleaning lady.

I will be a very good advertiser for all the health care staff.

Thank you all,

Loretta Preston
