Table 3 Multivariable Analyses Relating Reported Noncompliance to Predictor Variables *

From: Factors associated with intern noncompliance with the 2003 Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education’s 30-hour duty period requirement

Predictor Variable (N = 728) Adjusted Odds Ratio
Rotations 0.49 (0.38,0.64) (p < 0.001)
Admissions after Midnight 1.15 (0.89, 1.47) (p = 0.29)
Increase Team Size by 1 Hospitalist Patient 1.25 (1.03,1.52) (p = 0.03)
Increase Team Size by 1 Non-Hospitalist Patient 1.34 (1.11,1.62) (p = 0.003)
Increase Team Size by 1 Patient 1.30 (1.10,1.53) (p = 0.003)
Fix Team Size and Exchange 1 Non-Hospitalist for Hospitalist Patient 0.94 (0.78,1.13) (p = 0.49)
Discharges 0.86 (0.67,1.10) (p = 0.24)
  1. *Shown are adjusted odds ratios, 95% confidence intervals and p value for the fixed effects. All odds ratios are adjusted for team in addition to the factors listed in the table. The odds of compliance varied significantly among interns after adjustment for the factors in the table (p = 0.03).
