Limiting Doctors working hours increases mistakes

A survey suggests limiting the hour's doctors in training work does not lessen the amount of mistakes they make.

Limiting residents to sixteen hours a day was implemented with the idea they would get more rest and make fewer mistakes.

But the surveys show, filled out by first-year doctors, residents working fewer hours made twenty percent more mistakes.

As residents state, the workload does not lessen but the amount of time to finish the work does.
