Don't believe them.
When you hear horror stories about our health care system, don't believe them.
The time between failing a stress test, admission to Eagle Ridge Hospital Monitored Care Unit (MCU), a pacemaker insertion, and discharge home was exactly one week.
The staff in emergency and the MCU was without exception marvellous, and, in these comments, I include the doctors, nurses, lab techs, paramedics and others who distinguished themselves by providing outstanding care and concern in their interactions with other patients and me.
There is no way I can adequately thank you for what you did for me other than to publicly acknowledge your care and thank you from the bottom of my heart.
This British Columbian has a whole new perspective on the health care system in action and will be forever grateful.
