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.
