Buddy systems and "flex nurses" are two ways that some hospitals attempt to ease nurses' burden and reduce the likelihood of fatigue, in keeping with recommendations from the American Nurses Association (ANA), according to the Courier-Journal. The unique danger of fatigue among nurses is due to the relative lack of safeguards against it compared to other professions involving long hours, operating room nurse John Kauchick, R.N., told the Courier-Journal.
