I have been a nurse for over 25 years, mainly ICU. Years ago I worked in the Burn Unit in Baltimore Maryland as an agency nurse. Before that I did my clinical there. I always admired the Burn Nurses and knew that I could never work in that type of unit on a long term basis.
One time when I was working there I read in a journal of some sort that burn patients who are discharged from the hospital have an incredibly high rate of suicide. Keep in mind that was in the eighties, is that still the case today?
