Hats off to the Cranbrook Regional Hospital.

On September 14, 2013, I fell and broke my femur. The ambulance people were quick to come to my aid.

Once I was in the hospital, I was made comfortable. That afternoon Dr. Chaney operated — explaining to my husband and me what his plan of attack was.

My surgery went well and for 17 days of stay in the hospital, the doctors, nurses, student nurses, staff and volunteers were very positive, efficient. I was well cared for.

By the 15th day I had decided that I could run the whole hospital  (ha ha)  but was disappointed that they wouldn’t let me!

I stayed two more days, and they were getting tired  of me bossing everyone around (LOL)  so again the wonderful ambulance people  took me  to my home, as I couldn’t do stairs.

I have only been in our hospital twice  in 43 years,  and I must say that we should be proud and lucky for the facility and the caring people  we have here in Cranbrook.
