Thanks to EMS responders and Marshall

By From page A5 | November 15, 2013

EDITOR:

My wife Trudy and I want to take this opportunity to express our thanks to the EMS response crew and the staff at Marshall Medical Center for the care extended to Trudy beginning on Wednesday, Oct. 23.

Our son, Marc, came home to find Trudy in immediate need of medical attention. His 911 call was met with an immediate response … even though we live in the country. The response crew was efficient and caring. Once stable, they took her to the Marshall Medical Center Emergency Room where an efficient staff took excellent care of the emergency and sent her to the ICU for further observation/treatment.

The ICU staff continued the excellent care along with Trudy’s physicians, Dr. Mark Tong and Dr. Rajiv Pathak, who visited soon after her arrival to assess the situation and prescribe necessary treatment. Trudy was released from the hospital on Friday, Oct. 25.

I was especially grateful for the care and treatment so quickly provided since I was in Los Angeles on a business trip at the time.

The icing on the cake came yesterday when Trudy received a get well card — more of a “Hope you are feeling better” card — in the mail. The card was signed by just about everyone at the hospital that was involved in her care. It seems this is something new they are doing and it is a nice touch.

Trudy appreciated the card and thanks everyone who signed.
