Nurses working extended shifts, are tired at work and sleep little likely to drive drowsy
Date:12/1/2007

t seven-to-eight hours of sleep each night in order to maintain good health and optimum performance.
  • Take breaks while driving
    If you become drowsy while driving, pull off to a rest area and take a short nap, preferably 15-20 minutes in length.
  • Consume caffeine
    Caffeine improves alertness in people who are fatigued.
  • Do not drink alcohol
    Alcohol can further impair a persons ability to stay awake and make good decisions. Taking the wheel after having just one glass of alcohol can affect your level of fatigue while driving.
  • Do not drive late at night
    Avoid driving after midnight, which is a natural period of sleepiness.
