Shore Medical Center announced today that Emergency Department Nurse Emily Sproule, RN, has been named its November Guardian Angel of the Month for providing passionate and exceptional care to Shore's patients. Shore established the Guardian Angel program to enable community members to say 'thank you' to a special Shore caregiver through a donation to the medical center in their honor.
Sproule has worked at Shore for a little over a year. James Hillis, RN, BSN, MHA, CCRN, Emergency Department and Pediatrics Nurse Manager, says she is highly respected as a nurse and coworker.
“The empathy Emily displays toward her patients makes them feel comforted, valued as an individual going through a difficult time, and safe being in her care. She is a very caring person, both toward her patients and their families, but to her coworkers as well.”
Hillis added, “Emily is the quintessential team player. She always anticipates other coworkers’ needs and offers help when needed. She is the nurse that other clinicians would say that they would want taking care of themselves or their loved ones in an emergency.”
A grateful patient who made a Guardian Angel donation in Sproule’s honor had this to say about her:
“Emily was my wife’s nurse when she was recently in the Emergency Department. Emily was so kind, caring and compassionate. She was very responsive to all of her needs which made us feel well cared for and also put us at ease. Thank you, Emily!”
Shore Medical Center’s Guardian Angel program provides an opportunity for patients and families to recognize anyone at Shore who makes a difference in their care or experience. Guardian Angels are recognized among their peers and presented with a Guardian Angel pin at Shore’s annual pinning ceremony.
