March 2018 Employee of the Month


Patrick Nichols has worked for Washington Regional since July 16, 2013. He is currently a Pulmonary Care Specialist within our Respiratory Services department.

Here is some of what was submitted about Patrick:

"Our mission statement says that Washington Regional is committed to improving the health of people in our communities we serve through compassionate, high quality care, prevention and wellness education. I recently experienced healthcare from the other side of the bed, when I was a family member of a patient here. Our Respiratory Therapist brought WRMC’s mission to life when he provided care for my family member. He showed genuine care and concern, listened patiently to our concerns – patient and of the family. This put an anxious family at ease as he genuinely answered questions - a lot of people do not understand what a Respiratory Therapist does until you need them. The time he took with us, he recognized that the patient needed a TREX. He calmly spoke to our family and explained what was happening and he became a patient advocate that day for us. After the patient was transferred to critical care, he still came out to check on our family. He reassured us that our loved one was being taken care of by an excellent team in the ICU. 

He embodies our mission statement by his extreme dedication to his patients. He always has a positive attitude and willingness to help co-workers, as well as going above his job description. He treats everyone as if they were his own family and I am personally very thankful the he is here and have the privilege to know him."
