    A considerable proportion of shift workers have work schedule-related insomnia and/or excessive sleepiness, a phenomenon described as shift work disorder (SWD). There is yet a lack of evidence on whether or not employees recover from symptoms of SWD between work shifts. We studied whether SWD and its subtypes are associated with insomnia and excessive sleepiness during weekly non-work days and with 24-h sleep time. Hospital employees answered a survey on SWD, insomnia and excessive sleepiness on weekly non-work day s, and 24-h sleep. To identify shift workers with night shifts (n=2,900, 18% with SWD) and SWD, we linked survey responses to employers' register on NI orking hours. SWD included three subtypes: insomnia only (SWD-I, 4%, n=102), excessive sleepiness only (SWD-Es, 8%, n=244), and both insomnia and excessive sleepiness (SWD-IEs, 6%, n=183). Based on regression analy ses, SWD was associated with excessive sleepiness on non-work days (OR: 1.42, 95% CI: 1.07-1.88) and with insomnia on non-work days (0.53, 0.31-0.91). SWD-I was associated with excessive sleepiness on non-work days (2.25, 1.31-3.87) and with shorter sleep (7-7.5 h: 1.96, 1.06-3.63; = 8 h). The results suggest that especially employees with SWD-I may need longer time to overcome excessive sleepiness than allowed by their roster.

    Suolistosairauksien hoitoon koulutetun sairaanhoitajan tulisi olla kiinteä osa moniammatillista tiimiä, joka vastaa tulehduksellisia suolistosairauksia (IBD) sairastavien potilaiden hoidosta. ¬Toistaiseksi tämä on tilanne vain joka toisessa näitä potilaita ¬hoitavista keskuksist

    Terveydenhuollon toimintayksiköiden lääkkeet on tarkoitettu vain potilaille. Sairaaloiden lääkekaapeista on usein valitettavan helppoa ottaa lääkkeitä myös omaan käyttöön. Ratkaisevaa on, kuinka organisaatio suhtautuu tähän.

    Helsingin lääketieteellisen perusopetuksen, Aalto-yliopiston ja Helsingin kotihoidon ensimmäinen yhteinen valinnainen kurssi oli rohkaiseva alku uudenlaiselle tiimioppimiselle, joka voi tuottaa hyvää myös -palvelujärjestelmälle ja potilaille. Kurssilaiset oppivat muiden ammattilaisten arvostusta ja ¬potilaslähtöisyyttä.

    Factors influencing the reporting of patient safety incidents that result from health information technology (HIT) failure are poorly understood. We examined whether organizational justice is associated with the non-reporting of HIT system-related safety incidents among registered nurses. Cross-sectional survey data were collected from nurses (N = 1399) who reported encountering a HIT system-related patient safety incident within the past 12 months. Selecting one or more reasons for not filing an incident report from a predefined list of potential reasons was used as an indicator for non-reporting. Logistic regression models were fit to predict the reason-specific likelihood of non-reporting with organizational justice. High organizational justice was associated with a reduced likelihood of non-reporting if non-reporting occurred because reporting was too hard or took too much time (OR = 0.81, 95% CI 0.67 to 0.96), because the reporting had no impact on the organization's processes (OR = 0.63, 95% CI 0.53 to 0.76), because the respondent was worried about the consequences (OR = 0.61, 95% CI 0.43 to 0.87), or because the respondent was not required to file a report (OR = 0.67, 95% CI 0.51 to 0.89). Justice was not associated with non-reporting if it occurred due to the lack of access to a reporting system, because no actual harm was caused to the patient, or some other, non-specified reason. The associations were robust to adjustment for several nurse and work characteristics. The results suggest that non-reporting of HIT system-related safety incidents is less common in a high-justice work environment. Fair treatment of nurses may encourage their reporting of safety incidents.
