Relief, hope and gratitude in RUH Recovery Room

My former ( and still casual) workplace. It’s great to hear it’s running smoothly. I find it’s an area of the hospital the public doesn’t know a lot about. It’s nice to see it profiled. We often had such busy days. The area often became a “holding tank” for various patients waiting for a spot, or an overflow area for other wards. It became very difficult to do my job properly, which is one of the reasons I stepped away from the hospital setting for awhile. I hope many changes are on the horizon.


Walking into the recovery room at Royal University Hospital early this afternoon, a quiet calm greets you. Registered nurses Lynn Rideout and Brenda Kroeger, who coincidentally trained together over 30 years ago, stand in near disbelief and will tell you, this is not the norm.
