Delaware’s Injury And Medical Malpractice Leaders

Long hours by medical residents can compromise patient care

After graduating medical school, doctors-in-training go through residencies where they gain hands-on experience helping patients. As part of the residency, it is common for residents to work 16-hour or 24-hour shifts. Once viewed as a rite of passage for residents, many in the medical community have questioned whether these long hours are necessary or healthy.

Delaware leads the nation when it comes to disciplining doctors

Holding doctors accountable for errors and misconduct is critical to ensuring that patients receive quality medical care. State medical boards are responsible for disciplining doctors who do not live up to the standards of their profession. While some states are relatively lenient in how they discipline doctors, Delaware takes doctor discipline very seriously.
