A study published in a recent issue of the journal Nursing Research recommended further study of nurses' hospital work schedules after finding that patients in hospitals where nurses work long hours are much more likely to die of pneumonia and heart attack.

Not only could this be unsafe for patients, it could lead to additional injuries for nurses - already a heavy duty, physical occupation for nurses providing patient care in hospitals.
