American Nurse Journal continues to keep track of the COVID-19 pandemic, with an eye to information nurses can put to use immediately, including how they can take care of themselves and each other in unprecedented times. For example, the case report on a community hospital’s efforts to support staff includes strategies you can adapt to your work setting. You’ll also find an annotated bibliography that offers insight into how nurses were instrumental to patient care during previous pandemics.
Other topics covered in this issue include the CNE article, which takes a broad look at current insulin knowledge, and feature articles on caring for skinfolds in patients who are obese, qualitative research, and home infusion therapy. The Healthy Nurse article focuses on the sleep and nutrition challenges faced by nurses who work nightshift. You’ll also find articles about limiting workplace drama, recognizing and managing dental infections, reducing hemolysis rates, and starting a nurse practitioner clinic.
