Great job on your post, you made some really good points and subjections to help prevent safety issues related to nurse fatigue. In addition, Middaugh (2016), states that according to the ANA, “nurses and employers have a joint responsibility to reduce risks from nurse fatigue and help create a work-life balance”. In fact, during one of my rotation, I heard a nurse complaining of been tired after working 2 days on the row and was on her third shift back to back. She was supposed to be off that day but another nurse couldn’t be at the hospital so she was called in to replace that nurse. As we know, back to back shift increase the risk of errors and compromise the patient health from error with no direct injuries to the point of causing death.
