In other VHH news, Cathy Werner, RN, BSN, an avid recycler, will retire from the hospital this month after 23 years in the Maternity Department.
“I think the environment should be protected as much as possible,” states Hawaiian-born Werner, RN, BSN. “When you live on an island, you have to think about where your resources are coming from and where they are going to.”
Werner has spread her ‘green’ attitude throughout VHH’s Maternity Department over the years. She has helped recycle more than 2,600 pounds of aluminum, plastics and glass material for the Maternity Department during the past 14 years, which is when she began to maintain a recycling record.
