A survey of 1,200 Americans found that 90% said the maximum shift for medical residents should be 16 hours and 86% said physicians should work fewer than 80 hours per week. The poll also found that about 80% of respondents think patients should be told if their doctor has been working for more than 24 hours. About as many said they would request a different doctor if they knew their physician had been working for so long with no sleep.
