Nurse Stevens Gloria Ajenstat
Nurse Laurie Stevens 1985
Occupation: Nurse - St. James' Hospital
When brothers Shane and Danny Ramsay were involved in a car crash that left promising diver Shane with serious spinal injuries, Danny was beside himself with guilt, as they'd only been in the car because he'd forced his older brother to drive them to the beach. In hospital, Danny was looked after by Laurie Stevens, who tried to convince him to speak to his parents, Max and Maria, as they were worried. Knowing that his father wouldn't be able to control his temper, Danny only agreed to see his mum, though he refused to eat or go and see Shane, believing that the wrong brother had been seriously injured. Laurie also helped to treat Shane as he regained consciousness, and it quickly became clear that his paralysis was temporary as he managed to move his fingers and toes, before asking Laurie to help him out, and she pushed him in a wheelchair to Danny's room. Seeing Shane up and about was just what Danny needed to lift his spirits and before long, he was back to his old self.
