Nurses who work the night shift have to combine healthcare work and the need to administer treatments with the patients’ right to rest. This is the case for Daniel Cencerrado, contact person for patient and nurse safety on the tenth floor of the General Hospital. He has been at Vall d’Hebron for more than four years.So, how does he do it? By having a team in which each person has a job to do. Daniel says working at night has its drawbacks, such as having to have strict bedtime habits. But it also has its advantages. Although sometimes you wake up and you have no idea what day it is.
