Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Nurse Appointed to California Commission on Emergency Medical Services
“I can think of no person in California more committed to local, state and national emergency preparation,” says Mary Dee Hacker, MBA, RN, NEA-BC, FAAN, chief nursing officer and vice president of Patient Care Services at Children’s Hospital.
Kathy Stevenson, BSN, RN, PCS, pediatric disaster resource center manager and house supervisor at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, has been appointed to California Commission on Emergency Medical Services by California Governor Edmund Gerald “Jerry” Brown Jr.
“I look forward to serving on the Commission for Emergency Medical Services,” says Stevenson. “This new appointment will allow me to gain awareness of the statewide efforts and to provide input on pediatric emergency medical services.”
Stevenson has worked at Children’s Hospital since 1983 serving as a pediatric nurse for more than 25 years, and in emergency preparedness for more than 15 years. As the manager of the pediatric disaster resource training center at Children’s Hospital, she has worked with the L.A. County Emergency Medical Services Agency and served on work groups focusing on various disaster-related topics. When Children’s Hospital moved into their new building in 2011, Stevenson developed a detailed plan for the hospital to coordinate this transfer, including moving ICU and Medical/Surgical patients.
