<a href="[] src="/emote/ramt.gif" align=left hspace=8 vspace=4 border=0></a>] I feel an obligation to take care of Wendy for who takes care of the caregivers? The strain is on her face. She says that the stories are horrifying, but she has to listen because that is her job.
The immediate survivors, the caregivers and the people who handle the human remains are most at risk for PTSD. You have done a very good deed in helping support your friend through this time. That support can have an expanding ripple effect in helping everyone. You might suggest to her that the hospital administration should consider a retreat, co-counseling group session, or some other type of 'debriefing' for their psych staff at the end of the month. There is some good evidence that this helps the caregivers retain their balance amid severe levels of stress. Perhaps they already know this, though, because it is one of the key components in the new forms of cognitive-behavioral therapy.
I imagine that there will be a city-wide acknowledgment of the workers who are on the site--that will go a long way towards helping them readjust and to put the nightmare behind them and go on.
