5 Stainton Nurse Andria Faust, RN, of Somers Point

SOMERS POINT – Shore Medical Center has announced that Andria Faust, RN, a nurse on 5 Stainton inpatient unit, has been named its February Guardian Angel of the Month for providing passionate and exceptional patient care. 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.

Faust has worked at Shore Medical Center on the 5 Stainton unit since she joined the organization in 2009. Her supervisor, 5 Stainton Nurse Manager Jennifer Cressey, BSN, RN, said she is a role model to others.

“Andria is a kind and caring person who has a gentle, calming spirit about her. She is a resource for many and is always available to help the unit when needed. She is a true role model to her peers, and is a gift to all who meet her and are cared for by her,” Cressey said.

A patient recently made a Guardian Angel donation to the medical center in Faust’s honor and had this to say about her: “Andria took great care of my husband; she was so nice to him and treated him with the most respect.”

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.

To honor a Shore Medical Center Guardian Angel, call Shore’s Planned Giving & Development Department at 609-653-3800 or visit www.GivetoShore.org.
