Morse, RN, Honored at Statewide Hospital Awards Luncheon

OMAHA, Neb. – Valley County Health System Infection Control Coordinator Kate Morse, RN, was among approximately 75 hospital workers statewide to be honored at the Nebraska Hospital Association (NHA) Caring Kind Luncheon on Oct. 27. The awards banquet was held in conjunction with the annual NHA Convention in La Vista, Neb.

The award recognizes hospital and health system employees in Nebraska who go above and beyond the call of duty, demonstrating compassion, service excellence and teamwork within their job duties and organization.

“I am humbled by this honor because I feel like I’m just doing my job. Yet, it means a lot to me to know my coworkers appreciate and recognize the importance of infection control,” Morse said.  

Morse’s work at VCHS ranges from promoting and educating about proper hygiene and infection prevention practices to assisting with surgeries to conducting new employee screenings.

Each year, VCHS nominates its organizational Employee of the Year for this honor.
