ARTIFACT: This is a circa 1945 Visiting Nurse Service of New York (VNSNY) Hat Badge in enameled nickel. The Visiting Nurse Service of New York is one of the oldest not-for-profit home healthcare agencies in the country, established in 1893. In the 40's, this organization was devoted to home healthcare, mostly for maternal and child health care. With the help of VNSYN the infant mortality rate was cut in half. This was also around the time that physical therapy became a specialty within the VNSNY after adopting the Association for the Aid of Crippled Children into their programs.
