Shore Medical Center today announced that RN Alexa Piplos, BSN, RN, of Mays Landing, has been named its July Guardian Angel for providing passionate and exceptional care to patients at Shore.
Shore created the Guardian Angel program to allow members of the community to say “thank you” to a special Shore caregiver through a donation to the medical center in their honor.
Piplos has worked with Shore for 11 months at the Advanced Spine and Orthopedics Institute (ASOI), where she cares for patients recovering from stroke, orthopedic surgeries and injuries, and Moreover.
Jessica Mankow, RN, MSN, CNRN, ASOI Nurse Manager, says Piplos has been a nurse for less than a year, but is already a fabulous employee and a wonderful addition to their unit and to Shore Medical Center.
“Alexa’s patients often comment on how attentive she is to their needs. She goes out of her way to help her colleagues whenever they seem to need help,” Mankow said. “She is a quick learner, competent and efficient, but also extremely caring and thoughtful.”
A grateful patient who recognized Piplos with a guardian angel gift at Shore in her honor had this to say about her:
“Alexa was very attentive and caring from the moment she arrived for her shift. We could tell she was very busy, but she never gave the impression that she didn’t have time for us. care from all the nurses was stellar but Alexa really stood out!
Shore Medical Center’s Guardian Angel program offers patients and families the opportunity to recognize anyone at Shore who makes a difference in their care or experience.
Guardian Angels are recognized among their peers and are awarded a Guardian Angel pin at Shore’s annual pinning ceremony.
