- Emergency Physician Coverage of In-hospital CodesJournal of Emergency MedicineVol. 45Issue 1
- PreviewWe read the recent article “Quantifying Off-hour Emergency Physician Coverage of In-hospital Codes: A Survey of Community Emergency Departments” by Sherwin et al., and would like to comment on this important issue (1).
