Hyre, A. D., Cohen, A.J., Kutner, N.G., et al. (2008). Psychosocial Status of Hemodialysis Patients One Year after Hurricane Katrina. American Journal of the Medical Sciences. 336(2): 94-98.

Results suggest the need for more screening and management of psychosocial issues in these patients after disasters, particularly those in shelters or inpatient environments for whom depression was a major issue.
