In the Netherlands, hospital care production pressure recently increased substantially, while the number of nurse anesthetists available did not. Dutch nurse anesthetists above the age of 50 years show a high fatigue score and therefore need special attention to prevent them from harmful effects and to sustain maximal patient safety.
Keywords: Fatigue, nurse anesthetist, on-call shifts.
