Wrongful Death and Overworked Doctors and Nurses
BOISE and NAMPA, Idaho. It is well documented that getting less than five or six hours of sleep can impair a person’s judgment. Drivers are advised to not get behind the wheel if they have not properly slept the night before. Federal regulations require that truck drivers take regular rest breaks to ensure that they are not driving on little or no sleep. Yet, despite this, many doctors—from neurosurgeons to nurses—are forced to work long shifts that lead to sleep deprivation.
