YNHH celebrates Nurses Week

In honor of National Nurses Week May 6 - 12, Spiritual Care chaplains visited departments throughout the hospital for the annual blessing of the hands. At the Saint Raphael Campus, the Rev. William West (at left in photo) read an inspirational story before blessing the hands of Chuck Aprea, RN, utilization review specialist, Care Management, and other members of the department.

Nurses on both campuses held ice cream socials during Nurses Week. At right, picking up some well-deserved, sweet treats at the York Street Campus were Jennie Ragan, RN, (left), service line educator, Women's Services, and Nicole Spaulding, RN, Mother/Baby Postpartum (WP 11).
