Abstract:Having a beloved person in the ICU can feel overwhelming for close family members and can cause psychological problems that can even persist after the hospital discharge. This study investigates the association between the support received by family and friends, as well as by the ICU staff and the level of depression in relatives of former ICU patients. There is already an extensive body of literature on the influence of social support on caregivers and older relatives of ICU patients, but this paper focuses on the younger generation of relatives and the support by the ICU staff.
