A NTN question come to life

NTN (national bar trivia) likes to advertise a little dilemma game with a teaser question of "Would you rather be operated on by a drunk doctor or a medical student?"

Now you effectively have the first option available:

Would you be shocked to be treated by a drunken doctor?

Well, a new study says that residents -- usually the first doctor you see when you visit a hospital - are often so fatigued, their ability to concentrate and respond is equivalent to that of a drunk driver.
