Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction: "Five Days at Memorial"

Tuesday, October 28, 2014 - 7:30pm to 9:00pm

Join us at Maze to discuss "Five Days at Memorial: Life and Death in a Storm-Ravaged Hospital" by Sheri Fink. As the flood waters rose after Hurricane Katrina, patients, staff, and families who sheltered in New Orleans’ Memorial Hospital faced a crisis far worse than the storm itself. Without power, an evacuation plan, or strong leadership, caregiving became chaotic, and exhausted doctors and nurses found it difficult to make even the simplest decisions. Unfortunately, when it came to making the hardest decisions, some of them seem to have failed.
