Legacy nurses raise money with flower badges



Salmon Creek — Two local nurses transformed discarded medicine vial caps into flower-shaped badge holders which they sold to raise hundreds of dollars for charity. Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center emergency room nurse Maureen Palensky and critical care nurse Kelly Brady recently teamed up to design and sell special identification badge holders, which have become a hit at their hospital. The team has already raised more than $650 by selling the decorations at $3 each. The colorful creations are now for sale at the center’s gift shop, with all proceeds going to the Legacy Salmon Creek Child Abuse Assessment Team.
