BARAHONA MADRIGAL, Ana Imelda et al. El trabajo nocturno y sus implicaciones en la salud de médicos, enfermeras y oficiales de seguridad de los hospitales de la Caja Costaricense del Seguro Social en Costa Rica. Med. leg. Costa Rica [online]. 2013, vol.30, n.1, pp.17-36. ISSN 2215-5287.

This paper analyzes the night work and its implications on the health of workers in an institution which by its nature requires 24-hour care, seven days a week, as is La Caja Costarricense de Seguro Social. For this, it was chosen a sample of doctors, nurses and security officers and they were questioned about illnesses they had, to try to establish its relationship with the night shift.

Keywords : Night work; occupational diseases; workplace hazards.
