Shore Medical Center is proud to recognize Roger Weikert, RN, as its 2018 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.
Weikert started at Shore Medical Center in June 2016 in the Emergency Department, where he is known for treating his patients and coworkers with the utmost respect and kindness. Often, returning patients will ask for Weikert by name because of the great care he is known to provide.
Sandra Eyde, BSN, RN, assistant nurse manager for the Emergency Department and Pediatric Care Center, says, “Roger is the epitome of professionalism and highly deserving of this recognition.”
Recently a patient Weikert cared for made a Grateful Patient donation in his honor, and had this to say about him:
“Roger gave me excellent care and attention. He’s great at what he does and it shows, thank you!”
A resident of Linwood, Weikert is a certified medical surgical nurse with a Master of Science degree, with plans to obtain his Doctor of Nursing Practice.
The Guardian Angel program recognizes anyone who works at Shore Medical Center and makes an impact and difference in your care. Guardian Angels are recognized amongst their peers and are presented with a special Guardian Angel pin at Shore Medical Center’s annual pinning ceremony. If you, a family member or friend would like to honor a Shore Medical Center Guardian Angel, please contact the Shore Medical Center Foundation at 609-653-3800 or www.GiveToShore.org.
