A bedside napping has become the norm in many British hospitals, as the nation prepares to begin a second round of sweeping new anti-virus measures.
Sleep, as it is now known, was a luxury for many during the pandemics.
The UK’s government says it has cut sleeping times to four hours and 40 minutes a night from eight hours and 36 minutes, while some hospitals have made it mandatory for staff to get up and move around when they wake up.
Sleep has also become a part of the NHS.
Here is a look at some of the more famous UK hospitals that have started bedtime rules.
Cots and mattresses A large number of British hospitals have now made it compulsory for staff in the wake of the pandics to get into their beds, or be seen lying in bed, to prevent the spread of respiratory illnesses.
Some hospitals have also put in extra measures to try and reduce the spread, such as installing extra ventilation units, or requiring staff to lie on their side to avoid catching pneumonia.
Many hospitals now also allow nurses to use their own mattresses or cots, while others are starting to offer the option of using a bedside mattress to help reduce the risk of infection.
A cot is not a bed, but it can be used as a bed for some people.
Some doctors have been recommending that staff in these situations use a bed or other form of sleeping bag to help prevent the risk from spreading.
The NHS has said it will be rolling out a series of new sleep measures to hospitals over the next two weeks.
These include restrictions on use of mattresses in all rooms and a new policy to encourage staff to use mattresses to help protect staff from pneumonia.
The measures have also been criticised for not doing enough to limit the spread.
While some of these measures have been successful, many have been met with criticism from those who say they do not do enough to stop the spread in hospitals, which can cause people to spread easily and easily infect others.
NHS England has said bedtime measures in hospitals will begin in March, with new rules expected to be rolled out in 2020.
A bed in hospital A number of NHS trusts are beginning to introduce bedtime restrictions, although some are still allowing staff to take their own beds or cot.
In some cases, staff will also be allowed to use cots to help them keep cool.
Some of these beds are being made in specialised hospital facilities.
One of the most notable examples is at the Royal London Hospital, which is currently putting beds in the ward for use by staff who have not been sleeping.
The hospital said it has been making a series, which it said have been a “game changer” in terms of “improving the quality of life”.
One of these centres is currently allowing people to sleep in cots on a number of nights a week, with more being added to the system in the future.
The Royal London said the new rules will “improve the overall health of our hospital, including helping to reduce the number of patients requiring hospital treatment, and to reduce overall hospital admissions”.
This is the same hospital where it is estimated the pandep helped reduce admissions by 17,000 beds.
