12 h shifts and rates of error among nurses: a systematic review.

Clendon J, Gibbons V. Int J Nurs Stud. 2015;52:1231-1242.

Extended work shifts for nurses have been linked to higher risk of errors. This systematic review of nursing errors found that shift lengths of 12 or more hours are associated with more errors, consistent with prior studies suggesting that increased nursing workload leads to patient safety vulnerabilities.
