From: Brian Sketchley-Whalen
Relation: Dietary Aide at Powell River General Hospital.

I had the pleasure of taking his food orders when I first started working in the general hospital. He reached out and shook my hand, and it helped me feel calm when I was starting to learn my new job. I used to think I would feel uncomfortable talking to people in the ACU, but that handshake helped me feel like I could help someone with my simple job.
