I was reacently watching an episode of Dr Phil (yes I know I need a new hobby
) about women who are overworked/overscheduled etc. There was a story of a woman who is a nurse in a neo natal intensive care unit who works a straight 24 hour shift. Is this correct - working 24 hours in a row? Here in Australia we are able to work up to 12 hour shifts depending upon the hospital policy but Ive never heard of anyone working a 24 hour shift.
Anyone know of this practice??
