The "July Effect" - Is it Real?

Slate.com reports that researchers have found a trend that there is a spike in hospital deaths over the summer when new doctors have just started practicing. Is it real and can it be attributed to this cause? Certainly, America has been witness to many mistakes in hospitals over holidays and weekends when less experienced, less tenured staff and medical personnel are on duty.

According to medical lore, though, freshly graduated medical students generally start in early July. About right now. Watch this short video that explores the research of this phenomenon. http://www.slate.com/articles/health_and_science/science/2015/06/july_effect_research_what_studies_say_about_spiking_hospital_deaths_video.html
