ALBANY, GA (WALB) - People who use their hands to heal others receive blessings from the ultimate healer. This is nurses week.

Friday, nurses who work at Phoebe Putney and in the school system had their hands blessed in the Densen Chapel by hospital chaplains.

Chaplain Patricia Porter said, "Sometimes patients don't always need medicine, but they need a touch and a human touch just means so much and it brings peace and comfort to the patients that's receiving the treatments."

Nurse Anna Proctor said, "A lot of times it's more just a touch, just a physical touch with kids, more so than the medicine that they need."

Dozens of nurses participated in blessing of the hands throughout the week.
