Duty hour policy why

Duty Hour Policy – Why?

  • Fatigue creates potential chance of error– not every one is the same – it is in the best interest of educational goal

  • Fatigue may cause an impairment which could possibly lead to injury to yourself and others

  • If we are not successful in living up to these rules, government will take over and we will not have anychoice in determining the benefits or disadvantages in this way of practice with regard to physician education and health or patient safety

Your obligations


  • Do not exceed the duty hour limits unless patient safety demands the extra time occasionally

  • If you are forced to do this by schedule or intensity of service on more than an occasional basis, let us know so we can adjust the situation appropriately

  • Duty hour monitoring will be going on selectively – you must cooperate, or lose your clinical privileges

  • Intermittent surveys will be carried out. They are mandatory and anonymous

Help for duty hour problems

Help for Duty Hour Problems

  • Hotline for problems, anonymous, to me and my staff only, not your superiors

  • Hotline Telephone Number: 681-2999

  • Voicemail

    • Be specific for problem and location, but it is not necessary to leave identification -- if better to wait until rotation is over, OK, but don’t wait too long



  • Have an excellent educational experience

  • Take good care of yourselves

  • Enjoy your advancement in medicine and the joy of caring for others!
