“I had such a great experience at the Meadowlands Hospital! From ER Registration to nurses, anesthesiologist to my doctor – everyone was very professional and nice but most importantly caring! This is what makes this hospital great!"
— Emma R., Meadowlands Hospital Same Day Surgery Patient, May 2017

“MHMC Staff made me feel comfortable and at ease at all times. Nurses always made sure my bed was made and cleaned. I never knew hospital food could be so good. Great meals! Nurses were helpful – amazing staff. For my first C-section, there is no way I could have done it without my nurses. Thank you. Nurses made sure I was in no pain and kept up with me as much as possible. Everyone was friendly and polite. Staff made me feel like family and they honestly cared. At first I was very nervous because it was my first time in this hospital – after my experience I will recommend this hospital to everyone. One of the best hospitals I have ever been to – please keep up the good work!”

Sleep and Sleepiness in Insomnia Phenotypes of Shift Work Disorder

by Valentina Gumenyuk, Ph.D.

This study found that among employees that work overnight hours, there is a higher amount of people who may suffer from symptoms of insomnia and/or excessive sleepiness. The circadian mismatch between working “night” hours and sleeping during the day may contribute to the global problem with workers that have non-typical work schedules. Specifically, the study is demonstrating that insomnia in night workers is related to “brain hyperarousal,” a condition found to be similar in individuals who work during the day who experience symptoms of physiological insomnia and the inability to sleep normally. There is scientific evidence of the study supporting that night workers who suffer insomnia will not sleep well even during their nights off from work.

The conclusion of this study is that insomnia alone should be treated as the brain hyperarousal condition. Traditional sleeping medications may not assist in targeting the core of the problem – the inability to sleep and maintain generally well-being. read full study ›
