Meet Ashley Stevenson, a Professional Staff Nurse at UPMC Presbyterian Trauma Unit 7F! She has been in the UPMC system for 7.5 years, with 2.5 as an RN. Why did she choose the trauma unit? In her own words, she says, "Trauma patients have motivation to return back to full health. The accident that caused them to be a patient in the hospital, interfered with their life plans and they usually have a more motivation to reach their goals." A memorable moment for Ashley was watching a patient who spent 109 days on her unit finally be discharge to rehab. Finally, she loves when patients return to visit after being in a serious accident, walking and living life again.
