Nearly half of hospital physicians are overworked, study finds
Four in 10 U.S. hospital-based physicians reported being overworked, while 1 in 5 said patient safety may be hurt by schedule issues, according to a study in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Researchers found 20% of responding doctors said catering to too many patients may increase the risk of medical errors, unnecessary lab tests or delayed diagnoses, and 36% said such problems happen more than once a week.  U.S. News & World Report/HealthDay News (1/28)
