Kind help after husband fainted

ON APRIL 24, my husband was at Metro in Compass Point mall when he fainted and fell.

The store's security officer, Mr Chin, checked my husband's cellphone, found my number and called me.

Someone also informed Raffles Medical about the incident, so Dr Hoo Kai Meng and nurses Adora and Nursaliza were already attending to my husband when I arrived.

A female staff member from Metro, whose name I did not get, comforted and reassured me. My husband has recovered and I am grateful for all the help we received that day from all these wonderful people.

Top-notch care from SGH staff

MY AGED mother was hospitalised at the Singapore General Hospital (SGH) last month. I had the opportunity to interact with most of the team who attended to her and I have praises for all of them.

They were professional, caring, compassionate and service-oriented.

The treatment approach was complete and holistic. It was a strong testament to the excellent work done by SGH.

It was also a timely reminder of the robust healthcare system that we enjoy, which we often take for granted.

A friend of mine, who lived in the United States for a few years, also shared similar views. When he took his father to a polyclinic here and to the Singapore National Eye Centre recently, he had very positive experiences.

I extend my heartfelt appreciation to all personnel at Ward 73, Room 24 who attended to my mother, including Dr Cheong Li Anne, Dr Jessica Tan and staff nurse Yiong Li Lin.
