Ontario resident praises Sechelt Hospital staff for ‘truly exceptional experience’
To whom it may concern:
On Sunday 9th of April, whilst visiting friends at Gibsons, I fell and hit a large boulder with my left shoulder whilst clambering on rocks.
Bundled into the car and driven to Sechelt Hospital I was immediately entered into the hospital records, and underwent triage and given an injection to dull the pain. After a few minutes I was taken by the radiologist into Xray, from thence to a bed followed by news that I had dislocated my shoulder. This was followed by a flurry of nurses, anesthesiologist, a doctor and intern.
In no time I was partially sedated, arm put back in place, re-X-rayed, given a sling and, now pain free, cheerfully dismissed with instructions for aftercare.
I would like to express my sincere thanks to everyone at the hospital. There was no wait time whatsoever. Everyone was cheerful, kind and caring. I was kept informed of every procedure and was even given the names of the drugs and what they were intended for. A truly exceptional experience.
A grateful 72 year old who still thinks he is in his 40’s!
