Comments from La Crosse Area
The GI in-service that you invited us all to at the end of March on “Malignant Colorectal Obstruction” by Boston Scientific during GI Nurses and Associate week was great.
I had a good time, a very nice meal and information/prizes. I think all staff that came had a good time and I just wanted to say thank you again for inviting the VMH gang.
You do a wonderful job, keep up the good work!
