It seems that every day I  read, see or hear about all the problems with Vernon Jubilee Hospital and our government health care system, so maybe I will just confirm some facts here.

I recently spent three nights at our hospital (my first overnight stays) and I will have to say that I have no negative comments.

The excellent care that I received was second to none.

I would like to thank all of the staff who were in my mind the best.

This includes the administrative staff, my surgeon and his crew, my family doctor, the RNs and RPNs, the lab and X-Ray technicians, the physio staff and all the volunteers.

Most of all I would like to thank the critical care nurse that provided me with my home care support and all the other things that an elderly male needs while convalescing.

Thanks again to you all.

I think we are damn lucky to have our hospital and our medical care system.
