ABSTRACT
The article reports on an editorial which appeared in The "New England Journal of Medicine" and was concerned with the moral and ethical issues that are associated with surgeons who inform their patients that they are sleep deprived and with the impact the disclosure could have on medical consent. The importance of having medical facilities develop a policy which could reduce sleep deprivation among surgeons is examined.
