A Wayne Memorial Hospital nurse gets a very special surprise for her hard work throughout the pandemic.

Hospice nurse Charlene Whitmore was chosen as employee of the year. She has been caring for patients in hospice for more than a decade. Whitemore's colleague's call her an "earth angel" for her ability to make her patients last days as comfortable as possible. She was nominated by the entire home health team. Whitmore says she's honored to receive the award when so many other health care workers deserve it as well.
