      Most people die at those hours because of understaffing and also because most medical staff are worn-out (tired).

      Am not very sure if 3.00 – 6.00pm is the time most people die, we may need to have some evidence of this. However, one way to think about it is because that is when most people would be deep asleep – when most of our body systems and functions such as breathing etc is lowest (because e are not active), and I guess in that state, especially if one is already ill, they can easily slip into coma and die.
