A Johns Hopkins expert explains the repercussions of poor sleep and how you can work with your reports.
As a manager, have you had difficult conversations with staff who are too fatigued to execute work properly? Sleep deprivation can put the employee, other staff members, and patients at risk of physical harm or lead to other critical errors in the workplace. Poor performance is not necessarily an indicator of an employee's lack of interest or commitment but can be a result of a variety of sleep concerns, including insomnia, narcolepsy, obstructive sleep apnea, and restless legs syndrome conditions.
Join Dr. Susheel Patil, clinical director of the Johns Hopkins Pulmonary Sleep Medicine Program, from noon to 1 p.m. on Thursday, March 5, to discuss ways that managers can improve their understanding of the safety and health risks associated with poor sleep and learn skills for organizing work to reduce the risk of employee fatigue.
