To the Editor:
On July 1, my brother was using his farm tractor to brush hog. He hit something and the steering wheel went out of control. He drove the tractor to the barn, shut off everything and as he approached us, I saw both hands were bleeding. We wrapped them in paper towels and headed home. He then said he would need stitches.
Not knowing what time Carrollton Aultman closes, we drove to the entrance. My friend went to the receptionist and she told her to bring him in. After taking the necessary information, the doctor and nurse did the repair. By then it was past closing time.
I just want to commend the staff, doctor, nurse and receptionist for cooperating to get the job done and on the clean up of the facility so everyone could go home. They provided great care, making sure my 88-year-old brother was able to walk to the vehicle and the doctor walked with him.
