Fight COVID-19 with Better Sleep Health: A Guide for Hospital Workers   [open pdf - 228KB]

From the Document: "In the face of a global pandemic, the health and safety of hospital workers is critical to our ability to mitigate the impact of a new coronavirus, COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019]. Hospital workers often get less than the recommended 7-9 hours of sleep per night and may need to work around-the-clock hours. Increased demand on healthcare systems will alter schedules further. Sleep and circadian disruption can have negative health and safety consequences including impaired immune function and increased accidents and errors. Sleep is a tool that you can utilize to help your body fight off infection, maintain health and perform at its best, which will have a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of your patients."
