Pullman Regional Hospital’s Guardian Angel Grateful Patient Program provides patients and loved ones with a way to say “thank you” to a caregiver. If a physician, nurse, staff member, or volunteer has brought comfort to you in your time of need, please consider recognizing them with a gift to the Pullman Regional Hospital Foundation. Gifts to this special program pay tribute to the outstanding caregiver, while also helping to provide resources for the hospital’s highest needs.
John and Christy McCloy honored Erin Rose, MS, LAT, ATC, an Athletic Trainer working at Pullman High School, with a Guardian Angel award for the care of their son when he sustained an injury during his high school football game. “During the Pullman High School football game, my son suffered an injury, and I was so grateful that the trainers were there to take care of him. After the game, Erin explained what had happened, recommended what to do at home, and gave me her phone number in case I had any questions or concerns,” said Christy McCloy.
“Our donation is just a small token of our appreciation. It is worth so much more to me to have someone available to evaluate injuries immediately and give guidance on what needs to be done to help my athlete recover. As hard as it was to see my son get injured, having the trainer there gave me tremendous peace of mind,” recalls Christy McCloy.
Erin Rose joined the Pullman Regional Hospital team as an Athletic Trainer through the Orthopedic Center of Excellence; her role is part of the Regional High School Athletic Training Program, which provides full-services athletic training care to local high schools. She enjoys serving student-athletes as a healthcare professional in their time of need, as well as serving in a mentor role. Rose provides assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation to Pullman High School student-athletes; she works in conjunction with student-athletes and their families, coaches, ATCs in training, and physicians at Inland Orthopedics, with the goal of providing consistent and efficient treatment, triage and prevention of sports injuries.
Wondering how your caregiver gets recognized? After you or your family makes a donation to the Pullman Regional Hospital Foundation in honor of the caregiver, the Guardian Angel will be notified of your generous donation. The Guardian Angel will receive a custom-crafted angel pin to proudly wear on his or her lapel. Rueben Mayes, Pullman Regional Hospital Foundation Chief Development & External Relations Officer, presents Guardian Angel Awards to the provider (pictured). Their name will be published in the Foundation’s Annual Report, internal hospital communications, as well as recognition at hospital events.
