Is Your Surgeon Sleep-Deprived?

By SEO Admin on January 28, 2011

Wall Street Journal-December 29, 2010 (Kathryn Hobson)-This article points out that sleep deprivation hurts physician performance. The real issue is what to do about it. One suggestion is that patients be "empowered to acquire about the amount of sleep their clinicians have had the night before such procedures." Another solution, in the alternative, is to train surgeons "to understand how fatigue degrades their mental and physical capabilities. They should learn to use this knowledge and determine whether they should disclose their condition to patients, whether operations should be rescheduled and whether they should seek assistance."
