PURPOSE: Increasing number of medical intensive care units (MICU) are adopting the practice of nighttime Intensivist staffing despite lack of data in the literature. While nighttime attending staffing of the MICU has been studied, nighttime Intensivist fellow in-training coverage of the MICU and its impact on patient outcomes has not been well established in the literature. We are attempting to look at nighttime staffing of MICU with fellows in-training, and its effect on patient outcomes.
