Letter to the Editor: No better hands

By SUE HUGGINS
Henderson, Nev.

Editor:

While in Utah visiting relatives, my husband was rushed to the Castleview Hospital, where he received emergency surgery.

From the emergency room, Dr. Doug Perkins, we received very professional concern, immediate action, x-rays were ordered and taken.

After many questions to rule out some things and make it easier for him to determine what was going on, we were transferred to Dr. Sterling Potter, who was also very professional with his examination and questions. He then admitted my husband to the hospital and called the surgeon Dr. Wayne Cox, who was returning home from the Salt Lake area. Dr. Cox came directly to the hospital and went into surgery with my husband.

The care and concern for my husband when he reached his room and for the next six days while there, shown by the nursing staff on the Med/Surg. floor (both day/night shifts) was excellent and showed us how much these people care for the patients in the hospital under their care.

Also the x-ray technicians were very professional and caring in what they had to do and though some of the tests/x-rays were not pleasant, they showed concern when it was uncomfortable.

We just wanted to let the city know that if they have to go to the hospital they couldn't be in better hands, than with the people who work at Castleview Hospital.
