According to the post, Halliday Johnson’s baby was in distress and needed immediate attention. The on-call physician was on the way, but Hess heard about what was happening and snapped to action. She put boots on over her flipflops and another hospital gown to cover her back, and got to work, according to NBC News affiliate WLEX-18.
“I said you know, I’m not on call, I’m here in a gown, but I think we ought to have the baby,” Hess said in an interview with NBC News Friday.
