IPRO Wins Renewal of Key NY Hospital Work Hours Contract
Dec 1 16
IPRO has won renewal of an important New York contract that oversees hospitals' compliance with critical physician-in-training work hour requirements. The contract with the New York State Department of Health—which IPRO has held since the compliance program's inception in 2001 - involves unannounced site visits, surveys, interviews and responsibility for complaint investigations at 115 teaching hospitals across the state. At issue is compliance with work rules that include limiting post-graduate physicians-in-training to a maximum of 80 hours on duty per week (averaged over four weeks), with mandatory weekly time-off requirements and rest time between duty periods, as well as requirements that residents receive in-person supervision by senior physicians.
