LETTER TO THE EDITOR:
I RECENTLY experienced a sudden, life-threatening illness, which required emergency surgery, followed some days later by a second surgery.
I would like to highly commend Sale hospital and every person involved in my treatment.
From the rapid and professional response by the ambulance service, triage and care in the emergency department at Sale hospital, the caring and professional surgical team, the staff in critical care unit, staff on the surgical ward, Hospital in the Home nurses, the Sale District Nursing team, and the ladies from Home Care.
My situation was critical, and I do not exaggerate when I say that I owe my life and my journey towards recovery to the expertise and professionalism of everyone who has contributed to my care.
I could not have received better care or greater support anywhere.
My sincere thanks and appreciation to everyone involved.
We have a great service here in Gippsland, at the Sale hospital and supporting medical and health services.
