Woman nurses for half century
BELLEVILLE (AP) — Jan Stewart wore a white dress, white hat, white shoes and white stockings when she went to work as a nurse in 1962.
Barnes Hospital in St. Louis prohibited jewelry other than wedding rings and makeup other than lipstick. Nurses had to keep their hair pinned up or cut short.
"Everything was reusable," said Jan, 70, of Hamel, a mother of three and grandmother of seven. "IV tubes, needles, syringes, catheters. Nothing was disposable, except dressings."
