Part of the "burden" of command is knowing the limitations of your crew.
If you find the situation has changed radically, beyond the capabilities of
the crew member to cope, the prudent thing is to step in, or to order
competent relief to do so.
If the situation should arise, it should be evaluated by the conditions
on site - not just an automatic fail based on a "rule".
