Alabama Nurse Defense Lawyer – Board of Nursing Alabama Matter Pending? We Can Help – ANA calls for stronger collaboration to reduce risks from nurse fatigue – (866) 348-2889
The American Nurses Association is calling for stronger collaboration between RNs and their employers and evidence-based strategies to reduce the risk of nurse fatigue for patients and nurses associated with shift work and long hours. The ANA also emphasizes strengthening the culture of safety in the work environment in a new position statement that replaces two 2006 position statements on the topic.
“Research shows that prolonged work hours can hinder a nurse’s performance and have negative impacts on patients’ safety and outcomes,” ANA President Pamela F. Cipriano, PhD, RN, NEA-BC, FAAN, said in a news release. “We’re concerned not only with greater likelihood for errors, diminished problem solving, slower reaction time and other performance deficits related to fatigue, but also with dangers posed to nurses’ own health.”
