Always remember to take a break from work and rest, people!

In yet another tragic case of alleged overwork, a female nurse was recently discovered dead in her dorm room by her roommate. Apparently, the deceased was a 38-year-old nurse practitioner who was attached to the Taipei Medical University and was believed to have been working for 13 days straight from 3rd to 15th November.

According to Apple Daily, the nurse was working night shifts and studying during the day so she hardly had any time to rest. However, the hospital disagreed and said that she was following a normal schedule, which is in line with the regulations of one day off a week. 



Based on the nurse’s schedule, it appears that she did have three days off the week before her untimely death but it was revealed that even during her days off, she had to go for her internship. Wah, so stressful! Her roommate found her motionless in her dorm room on November 26 and by that time, her hands and feet had already turned black. RIP.

They suspected that the cause of death was due to a heart attack, which might have been accelerated because she was slightly on the heavy side. However, despite the fact that there have been prior cases where heart attacks do happen due to overworking, the hospital maintained that she had not died because of overwork. 

Apparently, the deceased’s family wanted to keep the case low profile so the hospital declined to give any further comment but said that they would offer full assistance to the family.

Whether it is really due to overwork, it is most important to remember to take a break every now and then!
