Ellen Johnson has been the Supervisor of the Regions Hospital Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) Program (which also serves Lakeview Hospital) since 2005. Ellen has been an ER nurse for more than 40 years and a SANE since 2002. She is passionate about her work with patients who have experienced sexual assault and other interpersonal trauma, as well as supporting the nurses who do this work. She is constantly humbled by the trust patients place in her and the other SANEs when they come for care at such a vulnerable time in their lives. For Ellen, it is an honor and a privilege to help these patients get started on the road to healing.
