UTMRC Spotlight Summer 2022: Highlighting the Work of Ms. Pamela Ballard, RN, BSN
After graduating from the University of Texas School of Nursing at Austin, I spent my nursing career as an operating room nurse, and worked at the only trauma hospital in Austin at the time, Brackenridge. I was in charge of Cardiovascular surgery. We also went through another pandemic during that time, AIDS. It was a frightening time to be working with blood every day. Facts about transmission came slowly, and there was no remedy.
