Medical residency program not what patients ordered F)ear Ann Landers: I hope it's not too late to get in on the discussion about medical residency programs that require 36-hour duty. A woman wrote to complain because her son was bordering on nervous collapse from overwork and lack of sleep. She has a soul mate in me because I have a son who is going through the same thing. I agree with her that such hours are senseless and barbaric. ; Where is the common sense of people who design these programs? Don't they know that the rhistakes made by exhauste'd and bleary-eyed physicians can be fatal? Just because they have always done it that way is no reason it cannot be changed. i I wish you'd print the views of others, Ann. Am I the only one who thinks like this? Duluth, Ga. T)ear Georgia: No, you aren't. Read on: From Los Angeles: My fiance is doing his medical residency in a well-known hospital. He walks around half-dead from fatigue. Small wonder the suicide rate among doctors is so high. The same goes for substance abuse. Other professions, such as airline pilots, truck drivers and nurses, regulate the number of hours people can work to protect not only the workers but the public. Why doesn't the medical profession do this? 1 ; Cleveland: I will not sign this lfeUer, of course, but 1 swear by all that is holy every word of it Is trie. My husband is a medical resident and I am horrified by what goes on in the hospital where he is being trained. He Has told me of some of the mistakes that have been made by residents because of fatigue and stress. I am talking about accidental deaths resulting from misdiagnosis, Inappropriate treatment, wrong medication, f " . ; Ann Landers confusion of patients' charts and X-rays, etc., etc. It is so scary that I would have to be awfully darned sick before I would go into a hospital for anything. Garden City, Calif.: My children will not be celebrating Father's Day this year. My husband died because a resident who had been working for 32 hours straight gave him some medication to lower his hlood pressure. It turned out to be the medicine intended for the patient in the next room. You would not believe the number of near misses that occur in hospitals. And do you know who the real heroes are? The nurses. Corpus Christi: I was one of those physicians who worked 36 hours on and 12 off. 1 always wanted to be a doctor and was sure I had made the right decision even though the training was rough. When I graduated from medical school I was in debt $100,000. My cousin went to law school. His tuition was half of what mine was. He went to school three years, had summers off and got a job right out of law school that paid $60,000 a year. His malpractice insurance costs a lot less than mine. Meanwhile, he Is getting rich from the malpractice lawsuits he files against physicians. Am 1 bitter? You'd better believe it. To All Who Wrote: There have been some drastic changes in the medical profession in the past 20 years with more to come. Stay tuned.
