Culture Change: Undisturbed Sleep at Night: A Key to a Healthier & Safer Work Environment
CMS and long-term care providers have never considered sleep as an integral part of the plan of care and services provided for the resident. This Restorative Sleep Vitality Program (RSVP) is a combination of nationally recognized evidence-based, sleep hygiene research studies and the application of cutting edge practices to enhance residents’ sleep & wake. Most recently research has discovered a link between Alzheimer’s disease and poor sleep hygiene. A lack of sleep can create dangerous workplaces, where a combination of tired residents and tired staff can result in negative outcomes. A good night of undisturbed sleep is one of the most important services we can give our residents. By eliminating or minimizing night-time interruptions, we can encourage more of the restorative sleep our residents need to maintain and enhance their quality of life.
