|Chapter 6: Implementing the plan in hospitals|
For purposes of implementing the plan, a 12-hour workday will be established from the moment it goes into effect. There will be two shifts: one from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., and the other from 7:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. of the following day.
It will be the responsibility of department heads to see that unit chiefs organize these shifts and send a copy of the staffing sheets to the hospital management.
