Wind Down for the Weekend

“Welcome home from a day (or night) of hard work. It’s time to unwind and prepare your mind and body for sleep.”  

In celebration of Nurses Week, we’re back with another video from our new Well-Being Spotlight series with ICU Nurse & Associate Director of Clinical Outcomes, Stephanie Ottemiller, MSN, RN, CSSGB.

So, how are you sleeping? We all know the negative effect that sleep loss can have on your overall health and well-being. If we can help you get even a few more restful moments before or after a shift, we’re here for you.
