Lauren Thornton

Registered Nurse Lauren Thornton poses with the gift presented to her by a former emergency room patient, who credited her with saving his life. 

A very grateful patient recently returned to Lincoln Medical Center’s Emergency Room to express his appreciation to Lauren Thornton, a nurse who helped save his life.

Three days before he went to the emergency room, the patient had been experiencing chest pains. On Monday, he had increasing chest pains and at the urging of his co-workers the local man went to Lincoln Medical Center’s Emergency Room, barely able to walk. Medical personnel immediately helped him get the tests he needed to determine a course of action.
