Letter: Insurance company needs to spend time in spinal injury units

I totally agree with Dr. Rick Dewar…The insurance company does seems to be defending itself rather than supporting Mr. Campbell.

To the editor:

I totally agree with Dr. Rick Dewar regarding spinal injuries whether complete or incomplete. (Insurance Company May Be Putting Its Financial ‘Injury’ Ahead of Rugby Player’s, Oct. 24 Capital News.)

The insurance company does seems to be defending itself rather than supporting Mr. Campbell.

I have had extensive training in this area of nursing and was the charge nurse of a 40-bed spinal unit—including ICU—in Perth, Western Australia.

I have nursed and managed all degrees of spinal cord injured.

Maybe the people from the insurance company need to spend some time in one of these places and see what goes on.
