Approval and perceived impact of duty hour regulations: survey of pediatric program directors.

Drolet BC, Whittle SB, Khokhar MT, et al. Pediatrics. 2013;132:819-24.

This survey of residency program directors in the United States found overall approval of almost all 2011 ACGME work-hour regulations, except for the rule limiting interns to 16-hour shifts. Respondents reported that work-hour restrictions negatively affect resident education and continuity of care, and almost half of those surveyed described duty-hours violations.
