You did the right thing.
Don't feel guilty.
- Aug 9 by AlphabitsI recently had to write up a CNA at the LTC facility where I work because I caught her sleeping.
I also do PDN--overnight--and because I am all-too-human, (and terrified of falling asleep) I get the extra large coffee at the drivethrough on my way in to work. I bring my ipad to play with during downtime and keep me alert. And if I feel my head nod, or my hands start to droop on the keyboard, I get up and go through a jumping-jacks and stretching routine (if the mom's watching me through the baby monitor, she probably thinks I'm completely nuts! But I haven't fallen asleep.

I do get up and stretch when I feel sleep coming on. I'd probably wake the family up if I did jumping jacks! They are literally right around the corner with the door open (I am in the living room). And they have hard wood floors which would be a little noisy!
