A better safety net for young doctors
from The Wall Street Journal
In hospitals, summer is the season when newly minted medical school graduates start their first year of residency, taking on patient care with little hands-on experience. For patients, that means a visit from a doctor who might look young and untested. To make sure residents ask for help from a senior doctor, more hospitals are developing formal "escalation-of-care" policies with clear guidelines on when it's time to call one.
