    00:01 A few reminders to remember about sleep.

    00:03 Our good sleep patterns help support a patient's overall health, well-being and holistic care.

    00:10 Now, don't forget, as a nurse, that physical illness many times can help disturb our sleep patterns.

    00:16 In the worst sleep we have, that can also contribute to other declining health issues.

    00:22 Now, just know that sleep requirements are going to vary depending on our age.

    00:26 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.

    00:36 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.

    00:45 Thanks for watching.
