"Not to mention junior doctors..."

I've never understood the reasoning behind making newly graduated doctors work 36-hour shifts and then get a day and a half off. What kind of care can a patient expect if they arrive at an emergency room and have to be treated by a doctor who's had no sleep in over 30 hours? If there really is a shortage of on-call doctors, at least work on a 12-hour-on 12-hour-off schedule for 3 days rather than 36-on 36-off!
