Gaynell Hayward-Caesar, Chief Nursing Officer said: “The retirees were recognized as having left us with a rich legacy. There is mutual reflection of the old days and how it compares to the current way of doing things. There is lots of laughter and fun had by all.”

The Retired Nurses tea began many years ago and was the brainchild of the late Iris Davis. The younger nurses of the department plan the celebratory event, decorate, plan the menu and serve their retired colleagues. There is a slide show that is shown in the background that highlights the staff over 40 years ago. The tea has become a hallmark of Nurses Month.
