Rachelle Levesque, a nurse who has been diligently working at the Peterborough Regional Health Centre’s Emergency Medicine department during the pandemic, is named the winner of this week’s Frontline Worker Drop the Puck program. The Petes are celebrating frontline workers who have gone above and beyond for their community during these unprecedented times.
During the pandemic, Levesque switched from working in palliative care to the emergency department to assist her fellow nurses when COVID-19 cases increased in the region.
“Rachelle switched departments to assist her peers that needed the most help during the pandemic,” said Chris White, who nominated Levesque. “She had worked in emergency medicine before, so she had the experience and abilities. She’s such an amazing, caring person and ultimately, she is my hero.”
