HELP IS THERE WHEN NEEDED AT THE ALEXANDRA HOSPITAL IN INGERSOLL

I want to apologize for telling the readers in my Elder Orphans letter that the hospitals are too crowded with seniors to take the time to care . As fate would have it Friday morning May 10th around two in the morning I did not feel well.

Ella called 911 and the Middlesex -London E.M.S Para Medics, Phil and Matt after due diligence thought it was best that we should proceed to the hospital to check me out. There were three choices; University Hospital, Victoria Hospital in London and Alexandra Hospital in Ingersoll.

I chose Alexandra Hospital to attend to my needs. I was wheeled into Triage to be met by nurse Catherine who carefully took notes of the ambulance accounts of their interaction with me. In a few minutes I was seen by the attending Emergency room Doctor, Jay and the Nurse Darrel.

The warm caring excellent care from all of the hospital staff was much appreciated.

If you are in need of urgent medical help donít be afraid to call 911 and make your way down Hamilton Road to have the nice people take care of you at Alexandra Ingersoll Hospital. One of the nurses reminded me when we were leaving ; "Remember you are always welcome if you need help."
