Is monthly rotation of medical residents a risky time for patients?
from HealthDay News
Hospital patients may face an increased risk of death when medical residents leave their monthly rotations, new research suggests. "Most hospitals have guidelines for the handoffs that occur on a daily basis, and usually those handoffs include a face-to-face discussion between doctors about what will happen to the patient during the next shift," lead researcher Dr. Joshua Denson said in a news release from the American Thoracic Society.
