Whether you're a nurse, doctor, first responder or allied health (e.g. phlebotomist), sleep is crucial to both your physical and mental health. If you're lucky, you spend a third of each day—eight hours—sleeping. Getting a good night's sleep is especially important for healthcare workers who spend their days on their feed and mental energy dealing with patients and co-workers.
An important factor to getting adequate rest is your mattress. Old mattresses can be bad for your back and hinder you from getting a good night's sleep. Luckily, most popular mattress companies offer healthcare worker discounts, so we've put together a list below.

Casper was created in 2014 and is often credited with popularizing the "bed in a box." Since launching their award-winning mattress, they've since produced many other sleep-related products, including a night light and dog bed.
The New York Times Wirecutter recommends the Leesa Hybrid because: "The Leesa Hybrid combines the best parts of memory-foam and spring mattresses. It offers better cooling and a thicker cover than the competition, all at a great price."
