The trauma patient's experience is also experienced by health care providers who care for them. Its my hope that hospitals have "debriefing" and counseling and other support to strengthen those resiliency factors that keep us grounded while we care for the severely injured and sick. The stress of working in these environs is real and acute stress responses and PTSD FROM caring for people in crisis really needs to be addressed. Strong work Bostonians! That said I would have a problem with a detective telling a nurse or doctor not to do certain treatments like cleaning a wound on a victim. They may need to get their "evidence" but if the patient gets septic and dies to preserve evidence that would be problematic. Hopefully the detectives did not interfere with lifesaving measures for the victims.
