A nurse at a Walterboro nursing home has died after a weeks-long battle with COVID-19. Chelsey Riles, a unit supervisor at Veterans’ Victory House, says Donna DeHart passed away on Saturday. DeHart had worked at the nursing home for two years. “She worked lots of hours, was always willing to help somebody,” Riles said.
