This article describes the impact of a Virtually Integrated Care team on missed nursing care as defined by the MISSCARE survey. This multisite project reported that the most common missed cares and reasons for missed cares were consistent with other reported results in earlier literature. However, when evaluating missed cares that were directly impacted by the virtual nurses' roles and responsibilities, 1 of the 2 sites demonstrated a decrease in missed nursing care during the project. The virtual nurses with in the team were constantly monitoring care, and even though the second site did not demonstrate a similar finding, the authors felt it was due to the virtual nurses bringing a heightened awareness of missed cares to the team.
