The relationship of night shift work to sleep problems and work performance was studied. It has been reported that sleep disorders caused by night shift work in hospitals affect the job performance of many nurses. it has been observed that working on night shift and the use of alcoholic beverages to help induce sleep and between working on night shift and day time will cause severe drowsiness that caused the poor performance of nurses. what do you think?
