The Sleep Research Society supports legislative measures to impose limits on resident work hours across the United States. Shifts lasting more than 24 hours greatly increase the risk of injury to physicians-in-training and their patients. In 2004, the Sleep Research Society assembled the SRS Presidential Task Force on Sleep and Public Policy to develop model legislation and recommendations regarding physician-in-training work hours.
