Letter: LMH staff’s compassion and dedication appreciated

For Langley resident Vic Rurka, the staff at Langley Memorial Hospital made his stay there 'comfortable and relaxing.'

Dear Editor,

Regarding staff at the surgical floor 2 North, Langley Memorial Hospital:

I had occasion to spend a few days at LMH.

I observed the staff helping all of the patients with compassion and dedication.

I wish to say a very big thank you to nursing supervisor Kendall, head nurse Teresa, Sara Brown, Laana, Harman Sidhu, Christine, and Dr. St. John.

So much is said about the negative apsects of a hospital stay, and so little appreciation for those wonderful nurses, doctors, and their assistants who give their attention daily to those of us who are hospitalized.

As a senior and a veteran, it is very refreshing to see younger people so dedicated and so passionate about their chosen careers.

You made my stay comfortable and relaxing.

Vic Rurka, Langley
