Nurse involved in fatal accident after working 12 hour shift
Subject: Nurse involved in fatal accident believed to be caused by over working.
A woman’s Husband is suing a Hospital claiming his wife had a fatal accident after working a 12 hour shift.
He is claiming that the Hospital worked his wife as they were short staffed.
The accident happened when the woman was driving home after a 12 hour night shift when she crashed in to a tree. Her Husband feels that his wife was so tired that she fell asleep at the wheel.
During the woman’s night shift she told co-workers that she “hadn’t eaten” as the nurses were required to work through breaks due to being short staffed.
Her Husband also wants the Hospital to change its practices along with damages.
