My son spent a week in this hospital two months before Katrina. My wife stayed with him. He was within 3 weeks of having major surgery here when Katrina hit.
The conditions at this hospital after Katrina were, if anything, understated in this interview. I agree it is unconscionable that in the USA patients and staff in a hospital like this could be left so long in these conditions. Hospitals were not high enough on the priority list of those in authority to allocate resources. This is not second guessing, it is a factual statement. I never before have witnessed government incompetence on such a scale.
IMHO, if anyone should have been indicted,it should not have been this poor doctor. I would trust her to be my physician any time.
Can you imagine what it would have been like if we had the socialized medical system that the dems want to inflict on us?
If it was this bad in a liberal(dem controlled) city in a Republican country with the best health care in the world, I can’t imagine what it would be like if we had socialized medicine.
The other thing that gets me is the hypocrisy of our system. Pro-euthanasia groups are pushing for the right to die, Terri was killed legally, and here this doctor is being arrested for allegedly doing the very thing the left wants to inflict on us all.
