Pullman Regional Hospital nurse receives DAISY recognition award

Pullman Regional Hospital Nurse Kelsey Weiss received a DAISY Nurse Recognition Award for her work at the hospital. The DAISY award is part of an international program that recognizes nurses who go ‘beyond everything’ when it comes to caring for patients. Weiss was nominated by a family member of one of her patients.

Weiss worked at Pullman Regional Hospital for three years after graduating from nursing school. She is a night-shift nurse attending to medical-surgical patients.

DAISY stands for Diseases Attacking the Immune System and was founded in memory of J. Patrick Barnes after his death in 1999. Barnes’ family created the award to publicly thank nurses.

The award recognizes nurses who work to connect with their patient and their family, make the patient feel comfortable and provide exemplary compassionate care. For more information on the DAISY award, visit pullmanregional.org/daisy-award.
