AB  - BACKGROUND: Family members of critically ill patients experience indications of
      post-intensive care syndrome, including anxiety, depression, and posttraumatic
      stress disorder. Despite increased use of long-term acute care hospitals for
      critically ill patients, little is known about the impact of long-term
      hospitalization on patients' family members. OBJECTIVES: To examine indications
      of post-intensive care syndrome, coping strategies, and health-related quality of
      life among family decision makers during and after patients' long-term
      hospitalization. METHODS: A single-center, prospective, longitudinal descriptive 
      study was undertaken of family decision makers of adult patients admitted to
      long-term acute care hospitals. Indications of post-intensive care syndrome and
      coping strategies were measured on the day of hospital admission and 30 and 60
      days later. Health-related quality of life was measured by using the Short
      Form-36, version 2, at admission and 60 days later. RESULTS: The sample consisted
      of 30 family decision makers. On admission, 27% reported moderate to severe
      anxiety, and 20% reported moderate to severe depression. Among the decision
      makers, 10% met criteria for a provisional diagnosis of posttraumatic stress
      disorder. At admission, the mean physical summary score for quality of life was
      47.8 (SD, 9.91) and the mean mental summary score was 48.00 (SD, 10.28). No
      significant changes occurred during the study period. Problem-focused coping was 
      the most frequently used coping strategy at all time points. CONCLUSION: Family
      decision makers of patients in long-term acute care hospitals have a significant 
      prevalence of indications of post-intensive care syndrome.
