A few reminders to remember about sleep.
Our good sleep patterns help support a patient's
overall health, well-being and holistic care.
Now, don't forget, as a nurse, that physical
illness many times can help disturb our sleep patterns.
In the worst sleep we have, that can also
contribute to other declining health issues.
Now, just know that sleep requirements
are going to vary depending on our age.
Typically, the older we get, the less sleep
we may need but this is going to be individual
And sleep should be promoted by
nursing to encourage optimal health.
So I know this may be very difficult
in an acute care facility, for example,
but as a nurse, do what you can to help
promote sleep and rest for your patient.
Thanks for watching.
