I’ve just left Vernon Jubilee Hospital after having gone through two major surgeries and I would remiss not to write a note of thanks to the nurses on the third floor of the east and west wings of the surgical ward.
For three-and-a-half weeks, I watched these nurses, without exception, perform their duties, many of them very distasteful, cheerfully and willingly. I couldn’t see their halos, but I know some of them were angels. Prior to my hospital stay, I had no idea what made up a work day in the life of a nurse.
My husband and I have a new appreciation for the nursing profession and I thank each and everyone of them on the surgical floor for all of the care and compassion they showed to me during my stay at VJH.
