Taken Too Long

Yahoo! News - No shock here: Interns' long hours cause medical errors: "Two new studies reported in The New England Journal of Medicine (news - web sites) now confirm that sleep-deprived interns make substantially more serious medical mistakes when they work shifts of 24 hours or more than when they work shorter shifts."
