Student helped

TO THE EDITOR: I would like to tell your readers a nice story about a SUNY Plattsburgh college student and the staff of CVPH Medical Center.

On Monday, March 3, I was walking near the college campus and passed out, striking my head and injuring myself.

A kind student stopped his car asked if I was OK and offered to take me to the emergency room. I told him I wanted to go home. He helped me out of the car and into my house. 

My husband took me to the hospital. Once there, the emergency room staff were excellent. They were caring, fast, professional and top notch. Everyone, from the person who initially saw me to the nurses and doctors, were great.

I was in the hospital for two nights. I cannot say enough about the caring nurses on the seventh floor, as well as the great doctors at CVPH. 

This experience has reinforced my belief that our younger generation does care about us and will do well when they are running the government and businesses in 20 years.
