Longer shifts increase risk of sick days for nurses and HCAs


I don't think long shifts lead to sickness. In my opinion, badly created rotas lead to sickness. I very often see staff having day shifts coming right after night shifts, so people don't have enough time to rest. Or murses have to do too many shifts in a row.
