PURPOSE: A paucity of literature exists with respect to published Intensive Care Unit (ICU) outcome measures in a mandated night intensivist model. Despite mixed data an increasing number of hospitals have begun to employ “an around the clock” in house intensivist staffing model. We aimed to determine how night time on site consultant intensivist staffing models influence patient outcomes. The aim of this study was to compare the impacts on patient outcomes namely mortality and ventilator days, by the presence of mandatory night time on site consultant intensivist.
