Patient Safety Highlights 2015 - A Fatigued Physician is an Impaired Physician! There Must Be Rules To Protect Our Patients

THIS IS AN ONLINE ACTIVITY. Hard copies are not available.

One speaker will review the science of sleep deprivation as it applies to functional impairment, arguing that it is unethical for an anesthesiologist to treat patients while so impaired. The opponent speaker will argue that sleep needs are highly individualized, and that no rigid rule should be applied.  Further, there is no objective means to assess for fatigue-related impairment, making such policies unenforceable.
