The April issue of American Nurse Today celebrates Nurses Week with our second annual All-Pro Nursing Team Awards.

Boston Children’s Hospital Cardiac Acute Care Unit Nursing Leadership Team was named the overall winner. You’ll want to check out their story, as well as the stories of the three runners up and 12 honorable mentions. Perhaps you’ll be motivated to nominate your nursing team next year.

Pressure Injury Supplement

Special Report Sponsored by Dabir

Throughout acute care—from the emergency department to the operating room and the critical-care unit—protecting patients’ skin from pressure injuries (PIs) can sometimes be low on the priority list when faced with immediate life-threatening situations. However, PIs can become life-threatening and most are avoidable when excellent assessment, physical care, multidisciplinary teamwork, and technology are used to ensure adequate perfusion. In this special supplement to American Nurse Today, you’ll find best practices related to specific acute-care environments and insight into clinical solutions such as support surfaces, technology, and collaborative care. You’ll also want to read the case studies from nurses who have developed and implemented PI prevention strategies in their acute-care settings.
