Fatigue Management in the Hospital

Abstract

Fatigue management in the hospital setting is necessary to allow optimal care provided to patients. Physicians, both in training and in practice, nurses, and other healthcare providers have to recognize the dangerous consequences of working in a fatigued state. Appropriate strategies to combat fatigue in healthcare providers are necessary to promote an ideal healthcare environment. Healthcare providers and hospital administration need to prepare and plan to accomplish this goal. Evidence-based interventions, schedule adjustments, and education may improve sleep quality and quantity which will improve fatigue. Improved fatigue will decrease errors, improve job satisfaction, reduce “burnout,” and ultimately benefit patients and providers.
