In response to the editorial concerning Miami’s Student Health Services. I have been a nurse for over 30 years and at Miami SHS for over four years. I have always been impressed with the quality of care the entire staff have provided for the Miami student population.
It is unfortunate when a select few can use opinions to fabricate an editorial that has so much misleading information. I noticed the editorial did state the following piece reflected the majority opinion of the editorial board. I also noticed the editorial board consists of nine people. We provide services to over 150 students daily. Any concerns are appropriately addressed.
100 percent satisfaction is the goal every organization strives to achieve. The SHS is no exception. It is extremely frustrating to me to read articles which portray SHS as having inadequate medical care and worse. I am at the SHS everyday and see a very educated and devoted staff that is very dedicated to providing the best possible care to each and every student we encounter.
I would like to encourage the majority of the student population to respond to this editorial.
