PULLMAN - Kelsey Weiss, a registered nurse with Pullman Regional Hospital, was recently honored with a DAISY Award, an international nurse recognition program for nurses who go above and beyond to care for their patients.
Kelsey was nominated by a grateful family member who expressed immense gratitude for easing worries and nerves about her mother's complex surgery and multiple-day hospital stay. "Truly, you were an angel watching over her," wrote the daughter.
Kelsey’s nursing career started at Pullman Regional Hospital after graduating from nursing school. Three years later, she serves medical surgical patients on the nightshift.
Kelsey has always had a natural passion for taking care of people. Her father started a nonprofit to help kids with disabilities and for as long as she can remember, in which Kelsey helped out at summer camp.
“My whole life, I have had a love for caring for others,” said Kelsey. “I explored other career paths, and perhaps nursing was the obvious choice. I’m so inspired by nursing. I love what I do.”
Her fellow nightshift crew “is simply the best.”
“When I was orienting in the ICU here at Pullman Regional Hospital in my last year of nursing school, I knew this is where I wanted to work,” said Kelsey.
