Proning intubated ICU patients for the management of acute respiratory distress syndrome is an accepted standard of practice. Authors examined the nursing climate in 4 units and its impact on implementing a novel self-proning protocol to treat COVID-19 patients outside the ICU. Consistent education on the protocol, belief in the effectiveness of the intervention, and a strong unit-based climate of evidence-based practice contributed to greater implementation of the protocol. Other articles describe how a multidisciplinary team planned for a surge of COVID-19 patients, the use of continuous video monitoring to replace sitters, an implementation framework for a clinically indicated removal policy for peripheral intravenous catheters, and implementation of an automated sepsis screening tool in a community hospital.
