Salute to the Spanish Town Hospital

Published:Monday | December 9, 2019 | 12:17 AM

THE EDITOR, Madam:

On Monday, December 2, 2019, I was transported to the A&E Department of the Spanish Town Hospital in St Catherine because of dengue-like symptoms. I was rushed in and taken to the registration area. I waited about half an hour before I was seen by the doctor.

Upon reaching the A&E Department, they asked what was the case and I told them. Immediately, they put a dehydration drip in my hand and I was revived, as I was half-dead.

A day later, I was sent to the holding area, where I was treated and paid special attention. The place was clean and everything.

I thank the personnel at the hospital for saving me. I am now home recovering on medication.
