How prevalent are hazardous attitudes among orthopaedic surgeons?
Bruinsma WE, Becker SJE, Guitton TG, Kadzielski J, Ring D. Clin Orthop Relat Res. 2015;473:1582-1589.
This study sought to examine hazardous attitudes—behaviors determined to contribute to traffic accidents among college-aged drivers by the Federal Aviation Administration and the Canadian Air Transport Administration—in orthopedic surgery. More than one-third of surgeons had at least one score correlated to increased likelihood of automobile collision. The authors did not find an association between these behaviors and surgeons' perception of safety culture. They suggest that future work should explore whether such hazardous attitudes predict surgical outcomes or complications.
