How do we improve the sleep of employees in a large hospital system? Sleep is something that has become a luxury in today’s society. Florida Hospital, with over 24,000 clinical and non-clinical employees, identified that sleep and rest was a huge area for improvement through their health risk assessment (HRA). They identified that almost half of employees (46%) who completed an HRA reported insufficient sleep and trouble falling or staying asleep. Sleep deprivation has been associated with poor health and poor patient outcomes. In collaboration with sleep experts, Rebecca Robbins and Manoucher Manoucheri, a Florida Hospital internist created an IRB approved research study to pilot a four-hour program to educate and improve the sleep of employees. This session will demonstrate how Florida Hospital has been able to educate various levels of employees through the program on the importance of sleep and how they can get better rest.
