Apple Daily reported that the nurse was working night shifts and studied during the day so she hardly had any time to rest.
The hospital, on the other hand, said that she was following a normal schedule, which is in line with the regulations of one day off a week.
Based on her schedule, it appears that she did have three days off the week before her untimely death, however, it is learned that even on her days off, she had to go for her internship. Her schedule is hectic man, anyone would be exhausted.

On the fateful day, November 26, was when her roommate found her motionless in her room. At the time of the discovery, her hands and feet had already turned black.
It is alleged that the cause of death was due to a heart attack, which might have been accelerated because she was slightly on the heavy side.
The hospital stood firm on their claims that she did not die because of overwork despite the fact that there have been cases of heart attack occurring due to overwork prior to her death.
The deceased’s family reportedly wanted to keep the case low profile so the hospital have declined to give any further comment but said that they would offer full assistance to the family.
Regardless of anything, you should get some rest every single day, and by rest I don’t mean one or two hours, I mean at least 6 hours of rest! It is vital to give your body a break after the long hours at work!
