Kristina Pelly WS2 A3 1. Frings, C. (2002). Answering your questions about 12-hour shifts, unwanted touching, and being on time. Medical Laboratory Observer, 34(12), Retrieved from http://www.mlo-online.com. The article “Twelve-Hour Shifts” presents a question and answer advisory on issues related to work and labor pool. This article assesses the efficiency of the staff during hard shifts; shows a need of recruiting additional employees; and focuses on promoting quality work life . The article explains that there are several negatives to having twelve hour shifts for employees, for example: limited labor pool, difficulty recruiting for position openings, difficulty scheduling vacation time since employees have more time scheduled off, difficulty covering for vacations and call-offs, fatigue, work-quality issues, and quality of life issues. The author strives to explain that twelve hour shifts decrease the quality of life for employees because when they are not at work, they are sleeping, eating, or working on something else—essentially it is a vicious cycle, most suffering from fatigue and burn out. A work group that would be immediately affected by a twelve hour shift would be the working moms. Mothers would have less time to spend with children, and also have to arrange child care for long periods of time. Unless employees have a lot of down time, working a twelve hour shift could be too demanding and too long for the common person. 2.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
