Supervision: A 2-Way Street

Arch Intern Med. 2008;168(10):1117. doi:10.1001/archinte.168.10.1117-a

We commend Singh et al1 on their thought-provoking and important work. While we certainly agree that patient handoffs are rife with the potential for error and patient harm secondary to breakdowns in communication,2 laying the onus of supervision squarely on the attending physician is an issue we call into question.
