To the Editor:
This is in response to Kenneth L. Hall's letter to the editor, Friday, Jan. 30.
To quote Mr. Hall, he said, "And whatever happened to common decency and courtesy in dealing with persons that have been patients at TMH?"
I am presently a patient at The Memorial Hospital and I want to assure everyone that I have been treated with the utmost "decency and courtesy." I have nothing but praise for the EMTs who picked me up at my apartement, the ER staff, the nurses, aides, housekeeping, dietary department and doctors. They gave me, and are giving me, very personal and caring attention under adverse physical conditions and I appreciate it very much.
Regardless of the political problems concerning the hospital, the human element of personal, friendly and caring attention is being provided by a very professional staff. You are treating me with dignity, you helped save my life, and I thank you.
