An article in the March issue about a pilot program to eliminate mandatory
overtime for nurses at the state Office of Mental Health said the focus at
Manhattan Psychiatric Center is on 12-hour shifts. Actually, PEF’s focus is
on attaining 12-hour shifts. Currently, some nurses are volunteering for
double 8-hours shifts.
