Killing in the Name Of…

Apparently during Katrina, some of the staff of LifeCare Hospitals on the seventh floor of the Memorial Medical Center allegedly commited euthanasia on patients in order to evacuate the hospital. From what it looks like, there was a rule for staff regarding evacuating during emergencies whereby they must have no more patients before they could evacuate. Apparently some of the staff took it upon themselves to solve the problem by killing their patients using overdoses of morphine. Of course, the article indicates it will be very difficult to prove. There’s one thing for certain, if this is true, then they definitely didn’t live up to their name…
