More sleep for medical residents?

Six years after rules went into effect that restricted the long hours worked by many physicians in training, the Institute of Medicine is calling for further changes, including reduced workloads for residents. Stanford's Jay Bhattacharya, MD, PhD, co-authored a paper that looks at the cost of implementing such recommendations; the paper appears in the most recent issue of New England Journal of Medicine.

A summary of the paper is here. The Wall Street Journal ran a story today on the issue and quoted Bhattacharya.
