As we go about our daily lives, it is sometimes easy to take for granted the best parts of living here. One of the most important ones is the benefit of living near Lakeridge Health Port Perry Hospital. This has been reinforced to my family twice lately. As my daughter-in-law was in one of the fine birthing rooms, she received the best of care. The nurses were there for her and skilled and helpful. Sara was with her the majority of the day of delivery, All of us present could see how dedicated she was to keeping watch of the mother and coaching and caring for her as she moved through the birth process. We were so thankful that she was on board as a team with the skilled Dr. Nancy Kazarian.
But we feel beyond grateful for the skill of the emergency staff as my month old grandson took suddenly and very gravely ill. Without the rapid and accurate actions and decisions made by Dr. Steve Russell, and the skills of the nurses, this baby would have died.
He was subsequently taken to Sick Children’s Hospital and diligently cared for until out of danger.
We cannot thank the doctors and nurses enough for their efforts and care of patients in this community.
