Coffee is no doubt one of the most popular beverages globally. It may be the fuel that keeps hospitals ,buzzing both day and night. Nurses and other medical practitioners work night shift or regularly rotate in and out of night shifts, so how will it be without the wonderful bean?[no_toc]
In a survey dated back 2010, nurses and doctors — compared to other professions — depend most on the buzz of coffee to perform their best on the job. But for some workers, it’s not that simple. As they fight against a natural sleep schedule, they often face the problem of staying awake at work in the nighttime and keeping alert in the daytime.
But health professionals aren’t alone. Researchers found 43% of coffee drinkers say they’re less productive if they don’t drink coffee on the job. And about a third of workers say they need coffee just to get through the workday.
With these, Nurse slabs collected some coffee drink recipes that will spice up your plain old boring black coffee and give nurses much more extended energy throughout the day and night shifts. The idea might also be a sort of a “special” coffee break within the nurses’ station or while relaxing at home on day-off.
