Bouquets :Kind assistance during illness

Kind assistance during illness

I was shopping with my friend at Plaza Singapura on Oct 8 when I suddenly felt unwell. We decided to take a rest at Secret Recipe restaurant.

I was dizzy and vomited several times. My friend was worried and approached the staff for help. They provided me with bags and warm water, and called for an ambulance, as I was still feeling weak and unable to walk.

I thank the staff, especially Mr S. H. Tien, for their assistance and kindness.

No let-up in award-winning care

I was admitted to Ward 10A of Tan Tock Seng Hospital last Saturday.

Three awards hung in the ward as a testament to the quality patient care provided there.

From my observations during my four-day stay, the nurses and doctors certainly were not resting on their laurels.

They were dedicated, committed and caring, and they always had a smile on their faces, which livened up the atmosphere. With their care and compassion, my stay was a pleasant one.

I am appreciative and grateful to all the nurses.

Patience, dedication from nurse

My father had the runs on the day he was to be discharged from the Singapore General Hospital. Nurse Lim Li Shin, of Ward 58, patiently helped him to wash up.

She even taught my mother how to bandage my father's wound so that my mother could handle it when we went home.

Ms Lim's dedication and care warmed my father, even though he was unwell. I am heartily grateful to her.

Cabby goes the extra mile

On Oct 9, I left my wallet in a Trans-Cab taxi. To my surprise, the driver, Mr Teo, took the initiative to return it to the address stated in my identity card. Everything was intact.

I am extremely grateful and appreciative that he was willing to take valuable time out of his day to return my wallet to me. He did not even ask for any monetary compensation.

It may seem like a small act, but his kindness and exemplary behaviour deserve to be recognised.
