Saying thanks to Prince Rupert hospital staff


Cudo’s to the doctors and nursing staff at the Prince Rupert Regional Hospital (PRRH).

My story begins 50 miles off the West Coast of Haida Gwaii, (Q.C.I.) on a fishing vessel, known as a dragger on February 29/12. It was an accident that I found, 23 hours later that I had broken a bone in my ankle. When I arrived at PRRH, I was treated and released within 1 and 1/2 hours from being diagnosed with a fracture that needed to be looked at the next morning by Dr. Smith.

The care from Dr. Joubert, X ray Technician, and Nursing staff on Thursday March 1/12 was unbelievable. On Friday, March 2/12 when I went to see Dr. Smith, the staff of the new shift, continued too look after me at the same professional manner as I had the previous night.

A operation that took a six inch plate and nine screws later by Dr. Smith and his colleagues, turned out I am sure too be in my favour.

Thank you everyone at PRRH who helped in preserving a life time resident of 62 and a half years in Prince Rupert. Your professionalism at P.R.R.H has given me a reason to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, too all of you.

Don Hansen,

Engineer, Savage Eagle.
