As the FAA has lately demonstrated, single person night shifts is
generally a bad thing if you actually want them to stay awake.
Jeff, there are other reasons for not having a single individual on an
overnight shift. A person can have an unexpected medical emergency at
any time or experience an accident. Getting help to them quickly can
make a difference between life and death. Even choking on a meal can
have a completely different outcome if there is another person
available. Having only one person in a facility overnight by themselves
just isn't a good idea, in my opinion.
