What People Are Saying
From a Virginia patient. I want
to thank yoii for your kindness and
consideration to me while I was a
patient at your hospital. You have
a wonderful hospital; the doctors,
nurses, technicians, and all v^ere most
efficient and helpful. I feel that I
received a great deal of help from my
stay there. Thank you again for
From a North Carolina patient.
True to be sure, we have had many
hospital problems in the past year or
so. We have been coming to Duke
for 19 years. Within the past year
it has been more noticeable how things
have changed over these years. The
service (nursing), commiuiications,
diets, medications, necessary doctor
attention from interns, impertinence
from interns and colored nurses,
colored help and secretaries has de
graded Duke Hospital tremendously,
and at the same time costing more for
less and poor services.
It is with deep concern that I write
this letter in hopes that some steps
will be taken to improve the hospital
care and regain its lost prestige.
