An E-mail popped into my inbox a few minutes ago with an interesting announcement that I can't resist passing on:
"ICU Satisfaction Rates Are Higher If a Loved One Dies"
And the headline of the accompanying press release (from the journal Chest) reads:
ICU Survival Determines Family's Satisfaction with Care
Families of Nonsurvivors More Satisfied with Their ICU Experience
And the first sentence of the release reads:
"New research reveals that the families of patients who died in the intensive care unit (ICU) had higher satisfaction of care ratings than families of patients who survived their time in the ICU."
The actual study is interesting and worthwhile. The publicity for it is truly a candidate for my press Leave-Out-the-Context Hall of Fame.
