Fatigued Nurses Likely to Regret Patient Decision Making

Nurses who experience impairments due to fatigue, loss of sleep, and inability to recover between shifts are more likely than unimpaired nurses to report decision regret according to the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses.  In a study that was released, over 600 nurses were interviewed.

Mistakes such as failing to follow care plans, failing to supervise, respond to call bells, and other errors which lead to injuries such as hospital falls and fractures, bedsores, neglect, and other issues all can arise as a result.
