Dear Editor

On a recent visit to my family in North Battleford I experienced a surprising emergency intervention for my heart.

Thank you to the health care workers in North Battleford and Saskatoon.

From the moment I arrived at Battlefords Union Hospital until I was discharged from Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon, I had exceptional care.

It was reassuring that nurses, doctors and ambulance employees all introduced themselves, told me what they were doing and what I could expect each step of the way. The teaching was explicit. I felt reassured throughout the whole time and I felt I was in good hands.

I am a former nurse from Montreal, Que. I can say from experience, the care in Saskatchewan was excellent.
