Re: Conditions during my hospital stays horrified me, Letters, Feb. 25
I was shocked to read the condemnation of Mount Saint Joseph Hospital. Our experience was diametrically opposed to Megan Balmer's. My aunt was a patient in an acute ward for 10 days. I spent much time there and saw efficient and compassionate nursing care. The nurses, student nurses and aides introduced themselves each day and took the time to update me on my aunt's condition. When I left a message that I'd like to speak to the doctor, I received a call within hours. The social worker made contact early on, and again, I was impressed by the care expressed for my aged aunt.
