Nurses not only work long hours but they also work all kinds of odd hours. That means they have no fixed mealtimes and no set schedules. More often than not, they also don’t end up eating very healthy. While none of this may sound like a big deal, it does have repercussions in the long run.
Not eating for hours on end could cause low blood sugar syndrome. This in turn makes them more fatigued, angry, and irritable. Now that’s not a mood you want your nurse to be in but the truth is it happens more often than you know.
