When Jean Akehurst patrolled the floors at Johns Hopkins Hospital on the evening shift, insecure young interns felt safe. They knew that every nursing position would be staffed, every difficult patient calmed, every hard-to-find medicine located.She was the classic head nurse, and for more than 30 years she dressed and acted the part. No one remembers a wrinkle on her starched, white uniform, or any time that she stepped outside her businesslike demeanor.But after Akehurst died last fall at age 79, she surprised former colleagues with a bigheartedness many never knew she had. Hospital officials learned in May that she had left the institution $1.2 million.
