Cheyney1246CheyneyI was transported by one team from Revelstoke ER to Salmon Arm ER and by another team to Kamloops Labour & Delivery, as I was in labour at 33 weeks. Both teams were professional, kind & compassionate as I laboured with my first child. It was frightening, but their care [and the nitrous oxide] made it bearable!07/11/2018 10:29:40 PM
Em1245EmI don't know the people that tried to save my husband’s life in April 2018. I'm sure you hear this all the time, but I hope that whoever you are, you get this message and take this into your hearts. I wish that I could do this face to face, but thank you so very much for trying to help him, you are amazing people, always remember that. XXX29/10/2018 6:25:13 PM
Emily1244EmilyFor Barb and Simon: I can’t thank you enough for your incredible care the other night. After my allergic reaction at an out-of-town wedding, I was scared and you put me at ease and were there for me when I took a turn. Your humour and compassion will not be forgotten. And coming back to the hospital at the end of your shift to check on my status was above and beyond. 29/10/2018 5:16:04 PM
David1243DavidI had a pretty bad accident on Sept 20th on the Sea to Sky. I just wanted to thank the paramedics and firefighters that showed up to the accident. One paramedic especially was very caring, professional and knew how to put me at ease with a couple of jokes. 24/10/2018 5:20:47 PM
Wendy & Steve1242Wendy & SteveIn the wee hours of Aug 25, Steve awoke with dense right-sided numbness and weakness. As two health care workers we knew what was happening & we called 911. The two paramedics who came out to the call did a spot-on assessment and their good-natured professionalism eased our panic. Steve had tPA in the local hospital and follow-up care and surgery at VGH. He is mostly recovered. Thanks!23/10/2018 6:24:08 PM
Sunshine1241SunshineMy 7-week-old son was admitted to Surrey Memorial Ped Emerg. He required care that they couldn't provide so we had to be transferred over to BC Children's Hospital. The paramedics, Jeff (driver) and Greg (backseat driver - inside joke), made our transfer very comfortable and accommodating. Jeff and Greg provided so much comfort about my situation. I felt well cared for. Thank you both.22/10/2018 4:24:58 AM
Anonymous1240AnonymousMy husband got very short of breath and an ambulance was called. A second dispatcher stayed on the line until the paramedics showed up. I want to thank them all, they were very professional, nice & with a sense of humour. John & Tracy were helpful & on top of things. Erin & Jonathan did an outstanding job. Erin, you are calm & very efficient. Thank you all so much.15/10/2018 2:13:56 AM
Tina1239TinaMy 93 year old mother fell twice over the weekend and I called an ambulance. The paramedics who attended to her and transported her to ARH were caring, compassionate and professional. Truly top notch. It was an emotional time for me and they were so kind. Sorry I don't know the names of the 3 who attended but thank you so much! 12/10/2018 4:02:59 PM
Georgia1238GeorgiaTrue generosity is giving what is needed and your service certainly fulfills this mandate. Last Saturday, two of your paramedics rescued me when my nose bleed wouldn't stop. I am writing in particular to call attention to Matthew who was so kind, patient and caring! He was amazing. How wonderful that hundreds will benefit from his expertise in the future. 11/10/2018 5:10:12 AM
