"My son wouldn't be alive without this hospital"

About: Lincoln County Hospital

I was admitted into hospital a week before my c section due to a transverse lie. The staff were amazing while I was in there before my sons birth. They would be compassionate and extremely knowledgable about what would be happening. Going in for the c section the staff were so friendly and made me feel at ease. My son was born ill with a blood infection. He was treated extremely well and they were so thorough with him. If it wasn't for their quick reactions he wouldn't be here. As well as looking aftee him, they were extremely compassionate to me and let me know what was happening while he was in intensive care. I have another c section due here in 2 weeks and I have every faith in these people. Thank you :)
