Shore Names ER Nurse “Guardian Angel of Month”

Shore Medical Center is located in Somers Point.

Shore Medical Center recognized Emergency Department nurse Carly Schell, of Margate, as its July Guardian Angel of the Month for providing passionate and exceptional care to the hospital’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.

Schell joined the Emergency Department team when she started her career at Shore Medical Center in August 2019. She worked on the front lines in the Emergency Department throughout the pandemic.

Emergency Department Nurse Manager Sherri Richmond describes Schell as a problem solver and said she is committed to patient advocacy, always putting her patients and their families first.

“Carly is caring and compassionate,” Richmond said in a Shore news release. “She is a team player who displays a keen attention to detail, and she is well-liked and respected by her colleagues.”

Schell’s patients notice her commitment as well. A grateful patient who made a Guardian Angel donation in her honor said of Schell, “Carly is extra special and extremely efficient, thorough, professional and very pleasant. Carly is an exceptional and very caring nurse.”

A graduate of the Atlantic Cape Community College Nursing program, Schell is currently pursuing her Bachelor of Science in nursing degree from Walden University. When she’s not working or studying, Schell enjoys spending time with her family, traveling or just relaxing with a movie and popcorn.

The Guardian Angel program recognizes anyone who works at Shore Medical Center and makes an impact and difference in patient care or experience. Guardian Angels are recognized among their peers and are presented with a special Guardian Angel pin at Shore’s annual pinning ceremony.
