BECKLEY, WV (WOAY) – Raleigh General Hospital recognizes its nurses on “National Nurses Week.”
The hospital cafeteria hosted a reception to honor the nurses and their dedication to patients and the community. One nurse in particular was given a special shoutout on her final day at Raleigh General Hospital.
“[It’s] very bittersweet. I actually planned it,” said Retiring Chief Nursing Officer Debbie Vaughn. “What better way to go out than celebrate Nurses Day with my nurses? I teased them this morning. We all wore white and I said, ‘I started my career in white, I’m ending my career in white.'”
Vaughn is finishing up a 40-year career in nursing, the last three with Raleigh General.
