To the Editor: Drs Wachter and Verghese1 considered the complexity of ward attending rounds in the current health care environment in a Viewpoint. We examined ward attending rounds2,3 using consumer preference techniques to learn how students, residents, and attending physicians view rounds. Our results complement and expand the observations in the Viewpoint.
