Aneurysm? Sorry, I have to go home



More unintended consequences of the new restrictions on residents' work hours at hospitals:

As an aside, I find it amusing that BI-Deaconess has banished pre-rounding:

Many residents who violated this rule were working late and then coming in as early as 4 a.m. to prepare for early-morning patient conferences, called rounds, with senior doctors.

Johnson said that Beth Israel Deaconess prohibited "pre-rounding" three years ago . . .

How can they possibly enforce this? It's bizarrely stigmatizing dedication to patients.
