Vident Partners provides medical malpractice experts to both plaintiff and defense attorneys. And over the 15 years that we’ve been in business we’ve seen a wide variety of issues, most of which we’ve been able to service with skilled, on-point experts. But a recent article by Dr. Jeffrey Linder, https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/14/opinion/dont-visit-your-doctor-in-the-afternoon.html, introduces an issue in the medical profession that I’ve never seen litigated, though it is a phenomenon that many of us encounter in our professional and personal lives – namely, decision fatigue, defined as “the deteriorating quality of decisions made by an individual after a long session of decision making.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decision_fatigue. This is a serious problem, and it certainly deserves to be better understood. For all of us, doctors and patients, this is a potentially life-altering issue.
