ACGME proposes new recommendations

From the FierceHealthcare article:
...first-year residents would be more closely supervised by experienced doctors, and the maximum length of their work shifts would be cut from 24 hours to 16 hours. In addition, all residents and their supervisors would be required to explain their roles to patients, making it clear that supervisors are ultimately in charge of their care.
