24-hour care: work and sleep conditions of migrant Filipino live-in caregivers in Los Angeles.
The authors examined sleeping conditions and outcomes for live-in formal caregivers. They found that caregivers rated sleep quality as lower while at work and that over 40% reported excessive daytime sleepiness. They concluded that impacts on sleep quality pose risks for work-related injury and errors in patient care.
