Docs get Tired in The Afternoon Too!

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.
