The full title of this Australian/Swedish study is "The association between benzodiazepine use and sleep quality in residential aged care facilities: a cross-sectional study".

 

"CONCLUSIONS:  The association between benzodiazepine use and sleep quality is dependent on the half-life and prescribing pattern of the benzodiazepine. Short-acting PRN benzodiazepines were associated with lower night time sleep quality and longer day-time napping compared to long-acting regular benzodiazepines. Longitudinal studies are needed to determine whether these findings reflect channeling of short-acting agents to residents at higher risk of sleep disorders."
