SOMERS POINT – Shore Medical Center announced today that Tyler Brito, RN, BSN, was recognized as its August 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.
Brito has been with Shore Medical Center for 2.5 years. According to Shore Director of Emergency Services, Sherri Richmond, Brito is passionate about his role as an Emergency Department nurse and always strives to do his best.
“Tyler is always willing to go the extra mile to assist his coworkers. He is a team player, hardworking, knowledgeable, compassionate, and empathetic, as well as a great critical thinker,” Richmond said.
“Tyler took care of me in the Emergency Department during my short stay,” the grateful patient who recognized Brito with a Guardian Angel donation in his honor said this about the care he provided. “He was kind, attentive, reassuring and knowledgeable. It was comforting having him there.”
Brito lives with his wife, Heena, in Ocean City, and in his spare time he enjoys sailing and boating.
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.
