Good, quick care shows that Cape is fortunate area
To the editor:
I'm an elderly retired registered nurse who recently returned to Cape Girardeau to live with my daughter. On Sept. 25, I went to Doctors Park for an appointment. I tripped and fell on the sidewalk, unable to move. I called for help. A pretty young woman rushed to help me. Soon many responded. All provided compassionate and competent care until the ambulance arrived and took me to the hospital. The ambulance crews and emergency-room staff were great.
It is a good feeling to know that such high-quality medical care is available and prompt. People of this area are indeed fortunate.
