But she said the experience enabled us to note that physicians, nurses, physiotherapists, working with less anxiety, dis-nandose of contraidentificaciones with patients, better efficiency and processing with the emotional burden that they deposited on the staff. The patients had shorter hospitalization, marking a difference between patients who had therapeutic assistance and those not.
