  • Maximum hours/time between shifts Connecticut

    Apologies if this has been posted and reposted, but I can't find specific answers.
    I am curious if there are a specific maximum number of hours a nurse can work per day in CT. After all, it is a job that directly affects lives.
    And in the same vein, how many hours must be between shifts? I'm not finding anything that says there IS a regulation which is absurd.
    How safe would YOU feel knowing your direct caregiver worked 18 hours yesterday - and then slept 3 hours before caring for you?

    I can give you this info: Ct.

    Hospitals may not require nurses or nurse's aides to work in excess of a scheduled shift that is determined at least 48 hrs. before the shift begins. Employees may agree to work additional hrs. but their refusal to do so cannot provide the basis for penalty or adverse employment decision. Exceptions are made for emergencies, completion of surgery, critical care until relieved, & employees covered by bargaining agreements that address mandatory overtime; makes reference to see Public Act 04-242, eff. 10-1-05.
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia

      It all depends on the company and type of work preformed. most common practice is 8 hrs between shifts.
      It's a Great Day to learn something new.
