Shore Medical Center is proud to recognize Katie Sellitsch, RN as its February 2016 Guardian Angel of the Month for providing passionate and exceptional care to Shore’s patients. Shore established the Guardian Angel Program to enable patients to say thank you to a special caregiver through a donation to Shore Medical Center.
Sellitsch, who currently resides in Brigantine, NJ, came to Shore as a graduate nurse in 2012. In 2014, after obtaining her bachelor’s degree of science in nursing from Stockton University, she became a full-time RN with Shore’s Advanced Spine and Orthopedic Institute on its 4th Whitby floor.
Sellitsch’s manager, Stacy Ross, RN-BC, BSN says Katie is an asset to her unit and to the organization. “Katie has a very kind and gentle way with her patients. She always takes the time needed to educate her patients and their families about their diagnosis and any medications they have been ordered,” Ross says. “She is a team player and is often assigned to receive multiple patients throughout her shift. In the fast-paced post-operative world, Katie not only keeps up, but she delivers quality, competent care always with a smile.”
The Guardian Angel program recognizes anyone who works at Shore Medical Center and makes an impact and difference in a patient's 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.
