LETTER: Blessed by medical expertise

We are so blessed to have the expertise of the doctors and nurses at Kootenay Lake Hospital and other doctors in Nelson.

We are so blessed to have the expertise of the doctors and nurses at Kootenay Lake Hospital and other doctors in Nelson. My wife has degenerative lung disease. She went to the emergency ward on a Tuesday and a battery of tests was speedily coordinated by Dr. McBride. She was transferred to a ward on the third floor, and after some treatments was discharged on Thursday of the same week with a portable oxygen bottle.

That afternoon all the equipment required arrived and on-site home instruction was provided in the use and safety of the oxygen equipment. We received excellent service and communication from all the staff and doctors involved in the entire medical services team. Thanks very much

R. Johnson, Nelson
