Hornchurch mum reunited with staff at Queen’s Hospital, Romford, who went extra mile for baby Florence
This is the moment Hornchurch mum Sarah Luisis was reunited with the nurses who went the extra mile for her daughter.
Four-month-old Florence was taken to Queen’s Hospital, Romford, with breathing difficulties last month – and while under observation doctors began to suspect she had meningitis.
Then came the terrifying moment when she stopped breathing and medics rushed into her room to resuscitate her.
“I felt like I’d been hit by a bus,” said Sarah.
Thankfully, Florence recovered, and tests showed only had a chest infection – but Sarah, of Lyndhurst Drive, hasn’t forgotten how she felt when she feared her daughter was seriously ill.

In last week’s Recorder, the mum-of-three praised the “fantastic, professional, and prompt” care Florence received throughout her hospital stay, singling out one nurse in particular.
“You could see it wasn’t just a job to Annette – she’s passionate about what she does and I can’t thank her enough for the time and care she gave Florence,” said the 31-year-old.
