Thank you, nurses!

Dear Editor,

Since the week of May 9 to 15 is National Nursing Week, I’d like to thank all the nurses who have helped me cope with all the health issues I have had to deal with over the years.

I’d especially like to thank all those nurses who treated me as an inpatient and outpatient at the Hospital for Sick Children, Oshawa General Hospital (Now Lakeridge Health), Toronto General Hospital, Mount Sinai Hospital, Women’s College Hospital, Toronto Western Hospital, St. Clare’s Mercy Hospital, and Health Sciences.

I also appreciate the excellent care the Ajax Pickering Hospital nursing staff gave towards my late father, and mom, and the Oshawa Lakeridge Hospital nurses’ excellent care to my late brother. I don’t know where I would be without all the doctors, nurses, and other health care providers. Yes, we should all celebrate and thank our nursing health heroes, not just during this COVID-19 pandemic, but for every day! Again, Thank You, nurses!
