Our 2 departments address responses to COVID-19. Residents in long-term care settings are particularly vulnerable to COVID-19 given the ease of transmission and environment. The type of support given to Missouri nursing homes during the pandemic can help inform the national discussion about the management of COVID-19 in long term care. Other articles describe how nurses blended evidence-based practice and Lean Six Sigma to reduce hospital-acquired pressure injuries, outcomes of using a nurse-led difficult urinary catheter team, multisite study of the Humpty Dumpty Fall Scale across a diverse, international pediatric population, and strategies for improving handoffs, among others.
