A nice small article packed with useful information and evidence to promote proning in med-surg areas that have COVID-19 patients.

This is an excellent article demonstrating the value that nursing brings. I anticipate the protocols shared in the article being repurposed and presented to leadership to launch nurse-initiated orders (NIOs).

Love the transition of a provider-driven intervention in the height of pandemic to a nursing intervention that can improve a patient's condition.
