In the early days of Covid when hospitals were running short on personal protection equipment, Kimberly, a quality improvement specialist, knew she needed to tap into her skills as a crafter. She gathered supplies and set up an assembly line in a conference room and made masks and face shields for her hospital. This is just one of the many reasons she won the Nursing Hero of Our Time Award. Edit credit: Alison Jacques
