KPH the best
I write this letter as I would like to give credit where it is due. I recently fell ill one Saturday at around 2 am and had to be rushed to the University Hospital. After being there for a few hours, we were told that the equipment to deal with my case was not available at UHWI. The specialist then told me that there are two options, either to have me transferred to a private institution or to Kingston Public Hospital.
I asked her to brief me on the cost to be transferred to a private institution as I did not want to go to KPH. When she told me the cost, I told UHWI to take me to KPH. Shortly afterwards, they had an ambulance take me there.
When I went to KPH, I was admitted to Ward 3A and was made aware that they had all the equipment that I needed. I found the nurses courteous, understanding, thoughtful and compassionate. The doctors displayed complete professionalism in their communication and contact with me, as well as their other patients. They took the time needed to explain every detail of my illness and the nurses expressed complete patience in taking me through my ordeal.
After getting to know these remarkable individuals, without hesitation, I can advise anybody to go to the KPH. They are fully equipped with the resources needed to do the best job they can, in providing a great and superior service to the country and its citizens. I urge you not to count them out as I was doing. They turned out to be instrumental in making my stay there smooth and successful. It has come a far way from the institution I once knew.
I would like to say to the doctors, nurses and all members of staff, "Keep it up and a job well done."
The Kingston Pubic Hospital is very much alive and well.
Let me also take this opportunity to thank the University Hospital, as although my time there was short, I was treated well and for that I am truly grateful.
"Well done, thou good and faithful servant." Matthew. 25:21
