A group of health care workers standing in the hallway of a hospital. They are wearing masks and some are wearing scrubs. They are facing the camera“Recently we have been celebrating the hard work and dedication on Bridgepoint’s inpatient Stroke and Neurological Rehabilitative Care Unit by sharing compliments from our patients and their families. In honour of Stroke Month in June,
I wanted to share a selection of these to recognize this excellent team:

“My therapist went above and beyond and took me over to see the [Historic] Don Jail one day.  I felt like a person, like I was able to do something normal again.”

“My sister has loved the attention she’s received from everyone at Bridgepoint and the care and therapies have been exceptional. As well, the team has been top notch in responding to and alleviating her concerns over the past three weeks, and there have been many! Thank you everyone for taking such good care of her.”

“You guys are so stellar.  I’ve been to other hospitals, and the care here is by far the best.”

“I’ve been overwhelmed, and it’s been a relief to come here and get your care.  We feel really, really lucky.”

“I was visiting my mom today and man, am I impressed with the staff! Amazing people that are more than willing to reach out and be helpful.”

“Everyone has been superb.  Everyone has been super communicative, especially at the family meeting; that was so helpful.””

A health care worker wearing scrubs and a surgical mask stands in front of a large bright yellow poster on the wall. The poster has handwritten thank you messages on it“Labour and Delivery is extremely fortunate to work with an outstanding team of Service Assistants (SAs) and especially during the pandemic. To express our gratitude for their remarkable service, staff nurse Amy Love collected $1,200 in donations to purchase gift cards for the SAs and created a thank-you poster for staff to sign. This kind act of appreciation is a true inspiration to us all, particularly as it occurred during National Nursing Week!”
