In brief: Sleepless

Do not ingest any mood altering meds or alcohol.
You can sleep normally somebody should check on you, wake you up , talk to you and make sure you are alright every 4 to 6 hours. I don't think there is any science to say how frequent the checks should be. Imaging is always recommended after severe injuries.
