Beth Israel optimistic about compliance review

Boston Globe, September 8, 2008

Young surgeons at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center have regularly worked more hours than allowed by national safety limits, according to an oversight organization and hospital officials. The group that oversees training of new doctors cited Beth Israel Deaconess for hours violations in a letter in January. The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education said that the hospital would jeopardize its accreditation as a surgery training program if it does not correct the problems by September 9, when council staff plan to review the hospital again.
