Nurses prove they’re angels
Over the past 25 years living in Victoria, I have read plenty of letters slagging the nurses in our local hospitals. Recently I spent eight of the nastiest days of my life in the cardiovascular unit of Royal Jubilee hospital. From the moment I walked thru the door until I left I was treated to the most professional, caring and concerned individuals I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet. In the middle of my stay, heavily drugged and nearly blind with pain I remember thinking, what kind of spectacular a-hole would one have to be to garner ill will from any one of these RNs. What more could we ask of anyone working a 12 hour shift in an environment like that? To each and every one of the RNs that touched my life during that stay. I offer a heartfelt thank you, which seems trite and inadequate but I offer it none the less.
