HEALTH DIRECTOR HEGE,
AND RETURNS TO HER
HOME IN YADKIN COUNTY

BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS
—COMMISSION ERS RETAIN'
THE TRI-COUNTY FLAN
Miss Katherine Nicholson, who
has served Stokes for several
years with fidelity and efficiency,
has resigned her positon and
returned to her home in Yadkin
county because of the disapprov
al of her work by Dr. Hege,
health director for Forsyth,
Stokes and Yadkin.
Dr. Hege's charge against Miss
Nicholson was "insubordination."
Asked by the board of commis
sioners to tell what he mount by
"insubordination", he said sin
refused to obey his orders, would
not co-operate with him in his!
plans, and that she practiced'
medicine instead of nursed. He
told the board that Miss Nichol
son's work was very unsatisfac-j
tory to the State department of
health, and that therefore he i
would not tolerate he r any long-'
Here a surprise was sprung by
the introduction ot evidence con-;
trary to the statements of Dr.:
Senator Sparger was asksd

by the commissioners to see the
State authorities at Raleigh in
regard to the complaints of Dr.
Sparger was entirely disinter -

Sparger stated that D r. Cooper,
in charge at Raleigh told him
the services of the Stokes nurses
had been satisfactory to the
State department, with the ex
ception of the t pre-natal work,!
and that he did not blame; the
nurses for this, that it was in
As Dr. Hege himself had in
stituted the pre-natal program,

that the only unsatisfactory worki
to the State was that or! Here
himself. This established clearly
a case for Miss Nicho>s u.
But Hege had stated Miss j
Nicholson was practicing medicine
instead of nursing. It 'appears
this charge covered the nurse's
vaccination of thrtfe or four
people, after Hege had forbidden
her to vaccinate any more, and
that she had dressed the wounds
or sores of tv/o or three people,
when his express orders were not
to practice medicine.
It developed that the vaccina
tion was done by Miss Nicholson ,
on the approval or instructions J
of the supervising nurse, and
that the dressing of wounds was

mercy and kindness to sufferers, i
