In Fiona Godlee’s Editor’s Choice for the print issue of 7 November 2009 (BMJ 2009;339:b4569, doi:10.1136/bmj.b4569), we wrongly said that the maximum of 80 hours a week was introduced across the United States in 1993. The correct year was in fact 2003, as stated in the article that Godlee was referring to (BMJ 2009;339:b4260, doi:10.1136/bmj.b4260).
