Here are the questions:
1. What is it like to work nightshift?
It can be busy, even frantic, if you have a large caseload, are short-staffed, or a lot of admissions. Or it can be totally quiet--patients sleep all night...just kidding. Nobody sleeps all night in the hospital.
2. Can you tell me a little about your sleeping habit before a night shift? On the first night back to work, I slept about 2 hours prior to the shift. Came home exhausted in the AM, immediately went to sleep in my dark, cool room and slept all day. Repeat every day until I have a night off, finally
2. During night shift, are you allowed to take a short nap during breaks by the hospitals?
3. If you are and you do, how long do you usually take a nap for? See above comment
4. Do you feel groggy after? If so, how long does it take you to recover? *drums fingers*
5. Where do you take a nap? Is there a special room provided by the hospital for nurses to take a nap in? no rest for the weary...
6. What do you think are the barriers on having a nap on night shift?
Um, working in a HOSPITAL...hard to do CPR in a recumbent position...
7. Do you have any concerns about driving home during night shift?
I have driven off the road too many times to count, which is why I finally had to get off the night shift.
8. If there is an especially designed 'Nap Room' available at the hospital, would you use it? What feature would you like it to have?
Massage therapy and fine chocolates
Sorry, I couldn't help having a bit of fun!
