Shore Medical Center is proud to recognize emergency department nurse Dawn Lee, RN, as its November Guardian Angel of the Month for providing passionate and exceptional care to Shore’s patients. The Guardian Angel program was established to enable members of the community to say thank you to a special Shore caregiver through a donation to the medical center.
Lee was hired as a nurse in Shore’s emergency department in 2013, where her roles include triage nurse, charge nurse and critical transport nurse.
Annmarie Guerrieri, RN, BSN, nurse manager of the emergency department, says Lee gives 100 percent to the department and her patients.
“Dawn is skilled at multitasking while always keeping her main focus on her patients. She’s a team player and strong advocate for her patients and their loved ones,” says Guerrieri.
A family member of a patient Lee treated said Dawn provided his family member with excellent care.
“She was knowledgeable, attentive and extremely kind and compassionate,” he said.
Lee lives in Millville with her husband and daughters.
