Resident-faculty overnight discrepancy rates as a function of number of consecutive nights during a week of night float.

Peterson C, Moore M, Sarwani N, et al. Diagnosis (Berl). 2020;Epub Oct 29.

Recent duty hour reforms are intended to improve patient safety and resident well-being. This study explored whether resident performance declines as a function of consecutive overnight shifts, but results indicate no significant trend in overnight report discrepancies between the night float resident and the daytime attending.
