Background: Since the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) was first discovered, at the time of writing this article, the number of people infected globally has exceeded one million. Its high transmission rate has resulted in nosocomial infections in health care facilities all over the world. Nursing personnel account for nearly 50% of the global health workforce and are the primary provider of direct care in hospitals and long-term care facilities. Nurses stand on the frontline against the spread of this pandemic, and proper protection procedures are vital. Objectives: The present study aims to share the procedures and measures used by Taiwan nursing personnel to help reduce global transmission. Review Methods: Compared with other regions, where large-scale epidemics have overwhelmed the health systems, Taiwan has maintained the number of confirmed cases within a manageable scope. A review of various national and international policies and guidelines was done to present proper procedures and preventions for nursing personnel in health care settings. Results: This study shows how Taiwan's health system rapidly identified suspected cases as well as the prevention policies and strategies, key protection points for nursing personnel in implementing high-risk nursing tasks, and lessons from a nursing perspective. Conclusions: Various world media have affirmed the rapid response and effective epidemic-prevention strategies of Taiwan's health system. Education for nurses in procedures for infection control, reporting cases, and implementing protective measures to prevent nosocomial infections are critical to prevent further outbreaks.
