Medical Residents Lack Sleep Despite Policy Changes
By having exhausted residents involved in the care of patients, hospitals are creating a dangerous situation not only for the patients in the hospital, but for the public at large. As noted above, residents continue to make life-threatening mistakes in caring for patients. Moreover, these exhausted doctors leave work after no sleep for well over 24 hours and get in their cars and cause car accidents which injure people. This out dated, inefficient method of training doctors need to be changed in order to protect patients and the public at large.
