Hospitals, emergency rooms, and nursing homes are highly dependent on fully alert staff round-the-clock. Many health care workers are challenged by sleep deprivation, fatigue and are at increased risk of medical errors. The stress of sleep deprivation also contributes to absenteeism and employee turnover.
Growing awareness of the risks of fatigue in the nursing industry has led the Joint Commission to issue a directive to all healthcare organizations to undertake a fatigue risk assessment and implement a fatigue risk management plan. CIRCADIAN® can help your organization assess the risk of fatigue in your health care workforce by providing tools, training, and other solutions for both individual workers and hospital-wide fatigue management systems.
