Allegheny Health Network Nurse Receives Trauma Prevention Award

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013

Pittsburgh, PA - Karen Glass, R.N., an Advanced Burn Life Support (ABLS) instructor and LifeFlight Nurse employed by the Allegheny Health Network has received a Trauma Prevention Award from the American Trauma Society, PA Division.
Glass was chosen for this award due to her dedication to burn education and trauma prevention. As an ABLS instructor, Glass travels across the state to teach courses in burn emergency care, trauma care and treatment of cardiac arrest and other cardiopulmonary emergencies.
Glass has been an active nurse in the Allegheny Health Network for over 30 years. She works with both the West Penn Burn Center at the West Penn Hospital and LifeFlight, the Network’s emergency helicopter service based at Allegheny General Hospital.
Glass’ experience as a critical care nurse has given her unique perspective when presenting lectures on ABLS.   
The Trauma Prevention Award was presented to Glass at this year’s ATSPA’s annual awards banquet, held at the Hershey Lodge and Convention Center in Hershey, Pa. She also recently received the “EMS Practitioner of the Year” award at the Annual Pennsylvania EMS I Conference.
Glass is a resident of the Lincoln Place neighborhood of Pittsburgh.
