"Emergency admission for my granddaughter"

About: Lincoln County Hospital / Accident and emergency Lincoln County Hospital / Paediatrics

(as a parent/guardian),

My 3 year old granddaughter was admitted to the Rainforest ward after being diagnosed with Viral Induced Wheeze.  

My granddaughter was staying with me whilst her mummy was away. She became ill very quickly, within 30 minutes, and was struggling to breathe. The A&E department stabilised her before the Rainforest ward took over her care.

From the moment we arrived on the ward the experience was beyond reproach. Every member of staff introduced themselves not only to me but my granddaughter also. They involved her in everything that they needed to do. They certainly put her at ease and me also, a very distressed grandmother.

Nothing was too much trouble and everybody that cared for her was so friendly. I cannot thank everybody involved enough. Special thanks go to: Dr Amera and Nurse Virgil in A&E, Jenny, Mel, Chelsea and Beth, the nurses on the ward who cared for my granddaughter and the Doctors who sadly gave me their names but considering the situation I unfortunately can't remember.

Thank you all for making my granddaughter well again.
