Letter: WhidbeyHealth staff were respectful, professional

Editor,

I was recently admitted to WhidbeyHealth as an inpatient in the Med/Surg Unit. I could not have been treated more professionally or graciously by any of the staff, from the nurses, doctor, dietary or any of the specialists doing tests.

I never saw any low morale from any of the staff. They treated me with respect and smiles.

They also treated each other that way. My room was spotless and spacious.

WhidbeyHealth gets so much bad press, and it is unfortunate. I do hope, however, that the hospital gets its finances in order and the nurses get raises. They deserve it.
