High five your health care provider - November 18, 2016

On Wednesday November 9 and Thursday, November 10 I was a patient of the Nuclear Medicine and Cardiology departments of Burnaby General Hospital and I would like to thank the awesome staff in both departments for my care. Each person I came into contact with treated with the best care that I have ever had. As I have some fiscal problems they were very careful with me and I am very appreciative about that. 

You have great staff and I want to let you know about it.

On November 10, I had lapaskopic surgery at the Abbotsford hospital in the surgical day care department. I had the best care in the time  I was there. Every doctor and nurse that helped me was very caring, compassionate and informative. I was so impressed with the care that I received. I just wanted to send a thank you for such great service. 

On Thursday, November 10, 2016 my Mom required emergency eye surgery.  Her surgeon had coordinated with the satellite day care unit to perform the procedure.  

We arrived at admissions at noon, with no paperwork and very little information other than we were to report to the satellite day care for the procedure. The admissions clerk (I didn’t catch her name) was very helpful and understanding, she prepared all the reports and got us admitted in record time.

Once we arrived at the satellite day care, all of the staff were compassionate, caring and attentive to Mom and me.  I didn’t get all of their names either unfortunately. Considering it was an unscheduled procedure my mom was treated very quickly. We were out by 3:15 and I was able to get her home resting comfortably by dinner time.

Our experience yesterday was so great, I felt I had to send our thanks and acknowledge the amazing staff.

Hospital visits are generally not pleasant but all things considered, this one was the absolutely best anyone could have asked for. 

Please send our sincere thanks to all involved.

May 2010, I became septic and could have died. An RN at Peace Arch Hospital named Gord was one of the integral components to my complete recovery. I can't thank him enough.

There was also a tiny RN who'd provided after care to me in the Cardiac Wing - I think her name was Debbie and she wore a Canucks jersey as it was during the playoffs! God Bless them both!

I had both my daughter and son at Surrey Memorial. Both experiences were amazing.I was given an epidural for the birth of my first child (by a doctor). I chose to have a midwife (Ann Barkham) with hospital privileges deliver my second child naturally (without any medications). A very beautiful experience (thank you Ann)! I would choose a midwife again as the whole birthing experience was so personal for mom and baby. Thank you to Surrey Memorial Hospital for the two most memorable and amazing experiences of my life!
