Five Days at Memorial
This book recounts the harrowing true life story of doctors and nurses battling to keep their patients alive during the immediate aftermath of hurricane Katrina. With meager supplies, no electricity, air conditioning, or running water, evacuation took fives days. For the sickest patients, hope seemed glim. A doctor and two nurses had to make some difficult decisions, and ultimately resulted in an ethical lawsuit. This book brings about an important question: What are healthcare workers liable for during a disaster the government fails them?
