The ACGME announced this week that more time is needed before making any decision on modifying resident duty hour caps. The ACGMEs task force undertaking the review of its Common Program Requirements, including duty hours and other aspects of physician training, requires more time to analyze data and other input.
In a context in Europe in which hospital nurse staffing is a frequent target for budget reductions, and policy makers are suggesting the introduction of lower skilled and less educated nurse substitutes like nursing associates, our results suggest caution is warranted. We find a nursing skill mix in hospitals with a higher proportion of professional nurses is associated with significantly lower mortality, higher patient ratings of their care and fewer adverse care outcomes. Specifically, each 10% increase in the proportion of nursing personnel who are professional nurses is associated with an 11% decrease in the odds of patient deaths after general surgery. Or from the perspective of reducing skill mix, which is more in vogue among policy makers, each 10% reduction in the proportion of professional nurses is associated with a 12% increase in the odds of patient deaths. We note that the proportion of professional nurses can be altered by either reducing the number of professional nurses or ...

The first study looking at if residents increased duty hours affected patient outcomes has been released and it shows that the justification for work limits may not be there. In an analysis of nearly 140,000 patients, less restrictive duty hour policies (i.e., number of consecutive hours worked and time off between shifts) did not lead to an increase in death or serious complications.

Objectives The aim of the present study was to investigate whether the direction of shift rotation was related to the need for recovery, fatigue, sleep quality, work-family conflict, and leisure time among three-shift workers.. Methods Data of 95 workers in forward-rotating three-shift work and 681 workers in backward-rotating three-shift work, with 32 months of follow-up, in the Maastricht cohort study (N=12 095) were used. Both cross-sectional and longitudinal analyses were carried out.. Results A backward rotation schedule was prospectively related to an increased need for recovery [relative risk (RR) 2.88, 95% confidence interval (95% CI) 1.06-7.81] and poor general health (RR 3.21, 95% CI 1.32-7.83), as compared with a forward rotation schedule. Adjustment for demographic and health variables and the characteristics of the work environment did not alter these relations considerably. Furthermore, a forward rotation schedule was prospectively related to less work-family conflict and better ...
Residents satisfaction with the quality of their resident education and their overall well-being was measured by the ABS survey they took in January 2015. Among the 4,330 residents responding to the survey, those in the flexible duty hour group (2,220 respondents) were not more likely to report dissatisfaction with their educational program quality compared with the Standard Policy group (2,110) according to survey results. They also did not report significantly greater dissatisfaction with their overall well-being. Importantly, residents in Flexible Policy programs were no more likely than the Standard Policy group to report perceiving a negative effect of fatigue on personal or patient safety.. The Flexible Policy program residents were more likely than the Standard Policy group to report improved experiences on several measures, including continuity of patient care, acquiring of operative skills, and professionalism, Dr. Bilimoria reported.. Importantly, residents in the flexible duty hour ...
Downloadable! Working time arrangements are key elements of working conditions and determine the possibilities for employees to balance work with their other life spheres. Therefore, this paper examines the level of working time satisfaction of employees and identifies the factors that may facilitate or impede satisfaction with working time using crosssectional data from the German BIBB/BAuA-Employment Survey. The analytical basis is a generalized ordered logistic regression model. The main results indicate that individual time-sovereignty is positively linked with a high level of working time satisfaction. Worker-friendly working time arrangements, which lead to less stress, insecurity and mental pressure, increase satisfaction levels, whereas atypical working time arrangements, such as unpaid overtime and working shifts, weekends and under high intensity, reduce satisfaction levels.

There is a new study out call Resident Duty Hours: Enhancing Sleep, Supervision, and Safety, the most comprehensive study of resident work hours conducted to date. According to this recent Institute of Medicine study there are many abuses of scheduling of the more than 100,000 resident physicians in teaching hospitals across the country. Often in the U.S.A. these interns and residents are routinely scheduled to work shifts of 24-30 consecutive hours, with little or no sleep. They work in operating rooms and ERs on the wards and in clinics. According to the study, the residents/interns when they are done their 12 hour or longer shifts, they potentially face back to back "on-call shifts" that can be 30 hours long. This brutal schedule leaves them sleep deprived and deeply fatigued interns and residents make mistakes thus impacting quality of medical care and safety. The rising level of medical errors in the USA is a testament to this real problem of quality of patient care and safety. Marathon ...
Under the supervision of the Consult Attending, the fellow will develop and refine their clinical evaluation skills of patients with rheumatic diseases, including appropriate differential diagnosis, diagnostic evaluation, treatment, and the need for continued hospitalization. Their exposure on the inpatient service will hone their understanding of indications and contraindications, techniques and possible complications of arthrocentesis and interpretation of results. Fellows will acquire skills in performing synovial fluid crystal analysis by polarized light microscopy as well as other non-invasive and invasive procedures. Consult consists of formal rounding 3 times a week (Mon., Wed., and Friday). Rounds on Tuesday and Thursday are dependent based off of the attending preference and the patient needs. The On-call schedule is generally divided on a weekly basis between the four fellows. Call hours are adjusted accordingly to comply with ACGME Duty Hour requirements. Fellows cover Monday through ...

Background: The release of the Institute of Medicine report on resident work hours and patient safety highlighted the risks to patient and resident safety of extended duty on-call shifts.. Objectives: The purpose of this study is to test the feasibility and effectiveness of mandatory naps during extended duty overnight shifts for residents.. Methods: For each site (PVAMC and HUP), every other month residents will be randomized to either work the standard schedule (which involves interns being on duty for 30 continuous hours) vs. the mandatory nap schedule, which involves interns signing out their beepers for 5 hours in the middle of the night to covering night floats and for 3 hours in Year 2. The primary outcome will be the amount slept as measured by actigraphs, with secondary outcomes of cognitive alertness measured by 3-minute psychomotor vigilance testing (PVT), Stanford sleepiness Scale, and other measures of resident and patient well-being.. Status: Recruitment complete, analyses phase ...

John Sutherlands description of the Modern Language Association of America (LRB, 16 December 1993) contains more misleading statements and outright errors than one would expect of someone who has taught at universities in both the United States and the United Kingdom. He treats the MLAs size as remarkable and somehow in itself a problem. He fails to consider the difference between the number of university teachers in the United States and the number in the United Kingdom. Statistics compiled by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development suggest that there are 11 full-time equivalent students in the United States for every full-time equivalent student in the United Kingdom. Assuming a similar student-faculty ratio in both countries, one would expect the United States to have 11 times as many faculty members at the university level as the United Kingdom has. Consequently, one might expect professional meetings in the United States to attract considerably larger numbers of ...
Positions requiring teaching. Ordinarily, those exempt and non-exempt staff positions that require teaching of regular or specialized courses are considered to be compensated as part of their base salary. In these cases, it is expected that all teaching duties, including advising, class preparation, instruction, grading and student/administration interactions, will take place during the normal work day.. All timekeeping by non-exempt staff members should always accurately reflect all working time, including staff administrative work and teaching duties time. Any work done beyond 7.5/8 hours in a work day or 37.5/40 hours in a work week will be paid at the applicable overtime rate of the individual based on the staff position. Attendance reports for teaching must be submitted on the 5th and 20th of each month.. Staff members teaching within their staff position must seek prior supervisor and Human Resources approval before working outside their normal work day, consistent with standard College ...

BACKGROUND: Nurse-to-patient ratios in the intensive care unit are associated with postoperative mortality, morbidity, and costs after some high-risk surgery. OBJECTIVE: To determine if having 1 nurse caring for 1 or 2 patients ("more nurses") versus 1 nurse caring for 3 or more patients ("fewer nurses") in the intensive care unit at night is associated with differences in clinical and economic outcomes after hepatectomy. METHODS: Statewide observational cohort study of 569 adults who had hepatic resection, 1994 to 1998. Hospital discharge data were linked to a prospective survey of organizational characteristics in the intensive care unit. Multivariate analysis was used to determine the association of nighttime nurse-to-patient ratios with in-hospital mortality, length of stay, hospital costs, and specific postoperative complications. RESULTS: A total of 240 patients at 25 hospitals had fewer nurses; 316 patients in 8 hospitals had more nurses. No significant association between nighttime ...
Limiting surgical residents work hours has compromised both surgical education and patient safety, according to an analysis concluding that the 80-hour work week in the U.S. isnt enough.
The response of the BMA junior doctor leadership to these principles was negative. Redefining normal hours to include periods currently reimbursed as overtime would reduce income, although the 11% increase in basic pay would probably offset this for many. The end to banding was seen as a licence for NHS Trusts to exploit junior doctors and make them work more, not less, hours. Abolition of the salary increment was seen as an insult added to the injury of less overtime payment. Limiting hours of work further could lead to a further erosion of overtime pay, whilst shift length and other rules about breaks and rest periods are already in the existing contract or the European Working Time Directive.. Hunt threatened to impose a new contract based on these principles, in August 2016, unless negotiations re-started. This made the junior doctor precariat take to the streets, threaten migration and predict an exodus into better-paid jobs outside the NHS. Five thousand junior doctors, medical ...
Background: In response to the 2003 ACGME guidelines restricting resident duty hours and the 2008 Institute of Medicine report recommending increased attending‐level supervision of house staff, many residency programs substituted hospitalist‐supervised night‐float rotations for traditional overnight call shifts.

Ive been in surgical resident education for over 15 years now, both as a PD and Chairman. You are 100% spot on with your comments about residents not being able to perform open surgery anymore. Unfortunately, I believe that is a sign of the times, both because of the rise of laparoscopy (which for the most part is a good thing), and because of the work hours restrictions we now have to abide by (which for the most part is a bad thing). I am most worried about the MIS fellow who cant do MIS surgery, and that leads me to ask if a Fundamentals of Open Surgery course (FOS, for those readers paying close attention) would be any better at solving the problem. I think we need to either relax the work hours restrictions, or make the 5 year residencies 6 years long. ...

Care of the transplant patient post-operatively requires a multidisciplinary approach. The goal of the intensivist is to create an ideal environment for the allograft to recover from its ischaemic insult and return to normal function. An understanding of the recipients pretransplant physiology is essential, as the pathological states associated with organ failure may persist for weeks to months after transplant. In particular, cardiac and renal disease may impact care in the immediate post-transplant period. An understanding of immune suppressive strategies will enable the intensivist to mitigate nephrotoxic side effects of these medications and anticipate specific vulnerabilities to infection. Attention to all the details of good critical care will give the allograft and the recipient the best chance for long-term survival. The intensivist must be able anticipate problems related to surgery and early signs of allograft recovery and dysfunction. Common post-operative complications are described in this

To some degree or another, many of these same factors continue to influence the U.S. health care delivery system today. Geolot (2000) predicts that in 2010 the projected full-time equivalent supply of registered nurses will no longer exceed requirements for full-time equivalent registered nurses. This is the predicted intersection to a shortage. The years following 2010 show a dramatic widening between the supply of registered nurses in relation to the requirements for registered nurses. Some states are already reporting difficulty in hiring experienced and specialty nurses and recruiting time is beginning to lengthen. This is in spite of an increase in the overall supply of registered nurses. According to the 1996 National Sample Survey of Registered Nurses (Moses, 1997), the total number of employed registered nurses increased at an average annual rate of 3.4 percent between 1992 and 1996 with 82.7 percent of the registered nurse population employed in nursing. During this same time frame, the ...
