  1. A classification of nursing and midwifery shift systems.

    Article - En anglais

    A classification of 122 shift systems worked by nurses and midwives in the larger general hospitals (400 + beds) in England and Wales was made.

    The systems were classified along two main dimensions: the degree of flexibility for shift rostering (either regular, irregular or flexible); and the speed of rotation between night and day work (either a permanent night shift or systems of fast or slow internal rotation).

    This resulted in nine possible categories of shift systems.

    The most common shift system was a flexible day shift with a permanent night shift.

    Other features of the systems are discussed, e.g. the start times and durations of shifts, and the relative influence of flexible rostering on these features.
