Emergency love

Posted on Sun, Jul 25, 2010 at 11:55 PM

I spent almost 6 hrs in emergency yesterday at the QE2 waiting for a couple of stitches and I never complained a bit! The staff in emergency yesterday were all amazing!! Especially *C*... he looks like the coroner from CSI NY... when that patient got nasty to the female paramedic, you set him straight! I am glad to know that you're also safe in emergency from crazies too!!!

Yes there are still some things that they can work on to make the new emergency a little more efficient, but for the most part, it was pretty decent... mostly because of the staff. I just wanted to send some love to the QE2 emergency staff, because they did make my day that much more enjoyable.

Also some love for the commissionaires there as well, you guys rock! And of course, extra love to the paramedic that stitched me up... as I said you were my hero yesterday!!!

Thanks Capital Health for the care, and thanks QE2 staff, paramedics and Doctors for your care as well!!! While we may have waiting times that are probably too long, over all, the fact that I still got quality care and did not have to pay out of my pocket then, and am not getting a bill in the mail now, works for me! And I may have even dropped a couple of pounds doing laps in the ER!!! Haha, over all our emergency is not that bad!! —ER marathon walker
