Not good enough

Visit to Vernon Jubilee Hospital leaves patient frustrated over lack of available beds

The other evening, I awoke from sleep at 2 a.m. with terrific pain in my left shoulder and fingers.

I woke my brother up and he took me to Vernon Jubilee Hospital.

One hour passed before a doctor examined me.

I had a heart attack a year ago. I had my suitcase packed thinking I would at least stay over night.

I was told after I demanded to stay, “No, you can go home.”

There were no beds available.

We pay the $60 a month for MSP and this is the way we are treated?

Shame on the administrative staff and their decisions towards the public.

This is not acceptable.
