Saluting Nurses on the Front Lines of the COVID-19 Pandemic

They could be considered the ground troops in the horrible war against the coronavirus pandemic. Nurses in hospitals and nursing homes are often the first people COVID-19 patients see when they are being treated.  Sadly, for those who don’t survive, the nurses are the last people with the patients during their final moments.  This is National Nursing Appreciation Week.  We salute them for the work they’ve done during this historic time.  We also examine how their work has evolved over the past several months.
