Shore Medical Center has named Yamilka Encarnacion, an advanced Spine and Orthopedic Institute nurse’s aide, as the November employee of the month.
“Yamilka is a great asset to ASOI and Shore Medical Center,” her supervisor, Jessica Mankow, said in a press release. “She comes to work each day with a smile and consistently provides excellent patient care. She is hardworking, dependable, and a great team player.”
Mankow added, “When there have been staffing challenges, Yamilka has offered to work extra not just on her own unit but on other units in need. No matter the task, Yamilka is always ready and willing to help her patients and coworkers. Her kindness and caring demeanor make her patients feel comfortable.”
Encarnacion, of Mays Landing, joined the ASOI team in August 2019. She had previously been a member of the Shore EVS team before taking a two-year hiatus and returning as a nurse’s aide.
