Shore Medical Center announced that Michael Smith, a nurse in the Emergency Department, has been chosen as its Employee of the Month for April.
Smith, who resides in Egg Harbor Township, has been a member of the Shore team since December 2018.
“Over the past year, Mike’s contribution to Shore Medical Center, the community, and his colleagues has been nothing short of stellar,” Emergency Department Nurse Manager Sherri Richmond said in a news release. “Mike is an RN and preceptor in the Emergency Department who volunteers to share his skills and experience with new staff. He is the nurse that always goes the extra mile to ensure the new Emergency Department nurses are ready to handle any situation that may arise in the ever-changing ED environment.”
Richmond continued, “Mike looks for educational opportunities for himself and staff, and on his own time, he can be found teaching his colleagues, reviewing cases, and reviewing best practices. Mike’s greatest attribute, however, is how he consistently cares for and advocates for his patients and their families. His work ethic and intentions are consistent with Shore Medical Center’s values of respecting others, pursuing excellence, and putting patients and families first. Mike is so deserving of this acknowledgment, and we are lucky to have his experience, skills, and positive attitude.”
