Doctors, nurses, children and parents may experience traumatic stress reactions and PTSD after an injury, but they're not the only ones experiencing these reactions. Recent research suggests even 911 operators show symptoms of emotional distress, despite only secondary involvement with the traumatic incident. In fact, over 30% of 911 operators express emotional distress after a traumatic call and almost 4% experience PTSD symptoms. Not knowing the outcome of the call proves especially distressing to operators. This research highlights the far reaching effects of a traumatic event as well as the need to provide training on coping with emotional distress to professionals peripherally involved in potentially traumatic events.
