Interesting Study From Johns Hopkins

This study shows that the longer a stay in the Intensive Care Unit, the higher the risk for patients to experience depression, anxiety, and/or PTSD, especially among children and women.  It follows that if patients are screened for these issues AND for developmental trauma, the risks to patients could be reduced.
