When I was a resident, I always marvelled at how on nights and weekends, remarkably fewer people were "required" to take care of patients than on weekdays during work hours. Logic dictated that either people must be receiving substandard care on off hours, because there were fewer personnel, or else perhaps those extra people weren't necessary.

Was I right? To the research. This is Healthcare Triage News.
