Article Content

In the first article of the new column Mental Health Matters ("When Caring for the Body Isn't Enough," February), Donna Sabella did a very good job of validating the need for more nursing education on emotional problems. I've worked at the bedside in acute care facilities for more than 20 years, and I've seen nurses set priorities for patients' physical care while mental health needs are given low priority.


I look forward to reading future columns by Dr. Sabella.
