WakeUpDoctor.org was launched by coalition of public interest and patient safety groups to increase public awareness and gather stories about patients who have received inferior medical care from fatigued physicians.
At WakeUpDoctor.org, the public can get background information about the correlation between physician sleep deprivation and patient safety, share stories and sign on to a letter expressing support for commonsense regulations to reduce the number of work hours and enhance supervision of resident physicians.
