Baystate Noble Hospital’s Ruth Bushey Named State Lottery Hometown Hero

WESTFIELD — The Massachusetts State Lottery and the Springfield Thunderbirds announced that Ruth Bushey has been named this week’s Massachusetts State Lottery Hometown Hero.

Bushey, an infection-control nurse at Baystate Noble Hospital, has worked tirelessly over the last few months to ensure all three shifts at the hospital are observing the latest updates from the CDC, wearing the proper equipment, and following all necessary hygiene protocols. She always makes herself available to address any questions and concerns, including assisting in the implementation of a UV box to disinfect personal items of hospital staff. She is described as a team player and the glue that holds the group together.
