For Surrey COVID-19 Test Collection Centre
I visited the Newton COVID-19 testing site for a test and the nurses were so amazing! They were friendly, kind and happy! The staff were just a breath of fresh air during this pandemic. Try heroes!
Truly, thank you for making that experience, not that bad, and for being amazing people.
For Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre
I went to the emergency at Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre and I was admitted, had surgery and was discharged.
I had good care while I was there but four nurses stood out as exceptional during my stay. Serena in emergency, Samantha, Katie and orthopedics nurse practitioner Daniela in Baker 3. All were kind and knowledgeable … and took the time to listen and explain. Serena and Katie both stand out as going the extra mile to make life easier for their patients!
My dad had surgery at Abbotsford Regional Hospital and was discharged through the Surgical Daycare Unit. His nurse Rob, was amazing. He called [me] frequently with updates during my dad’s recovery and included family in planning. Rob was friendly, competent and helpful. [I was] so grateful to have him care for my family member.
For Delta Hospital
In April 2019, my preemie infant son was brought in to Ridge Meadows Hospital because he stopped breathing. It was a long ordeal but we ended up figuring out it was a common cold. Without the AMAZING help of a retired nurse, Joan, who worked [part-time], and the respiratory therapist, Stacey – my son may have succumbed to his infection and passed away. I cannot thank these two women enough.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
For Burnaby Hospital
I was at Burnaby Hospital for surgery.
I had excellent care from start to finish. My surgeon was Dr. Dunwoody, who did a great job, as did the whole team. I just want to give a shout out to all the nurses that took care of me before and after.
