A while back, I wrote about the awful circumstances at Memorial Medical Center during Hurricane Katrina. There was some talk about medical staff euthanizing patients, and I suggested that Louisiana turn the scrutiny from the staff to the state. Apparently nobody in LA law enforcement reads our blog. Warrants were issued for the arrests of Dr. Anna Pou, and nurses Lori Budo and Cheri Landry. The charges are:
Principal to Second Degree Murder, four counts, by intentionally killing four patients at Memorial Medical Center, New Orleans, LA, by administering or causing to be administered lethal doses of morphine sulphate (morphine) and midazolam (Versed), as defined in Louisiana Revised Statute 14:24 and 14:30.1.
I am not the only one outraged. These medical providers were working in war-like conditions. No electricity. No food. Shootouts in the street. Backed up sewage. No assistance. They stayed behind to care for the sickest patients, and this is how they are thanked? I think that every government agency that took tax money to fund inept agencies like FEMA should be named as co-defendants. Perhaps a jury would then come back with a not guilty verdict for the three people in this situation who actually did their jobs. And maybe then, the government can be held accountable.
