    Doctors Use Euthanasia on trapped patients

    This one may end up as a peripheral scandal - faced with no power, dwindling supplies, threatening gangs and uncertain evacuation, some doctors practiced euthanasia on dying patients in New Orleans during the disaster.

    This from the Daily Telegraph, Sydney. . .

    Patients put down
    September 12, 2005

    DOCTORS working in hurricane-ravaged New Orleans killed critically ill patients rather than leave them to die in agony as they evacuated.

    With gangs of rapists and looters rampaging through wards in the flooded city, senior doctors took the harrowing decision to give massive overdoses of morphine to those they believed could not make it out alive.

    One New Orleans doctor told how she "prayed for God to have mercy on her soul" after she ignored every tenet of medical ethics and ended the lives of patients she had earlier fought to save.

    Her heart-rending account has been corroborated by a hospital orderly and by local government officials.

    One emergency official, William Forest McQueen, said: "Those who had no chance of making it were given a lot of morphine and lain down in a dark place to die."

    I probably would. . .but it's going to be interesting. That story, if true (reported in UK papers too) also says it violates Louisiana law. But an interesting scenario - what do you do in that kind of situation?

    You let the people suffer and die a slow painful death, that way you dont go to prison.

    If i where going to die a slow painful death id rather get it over with. Its shitty when a bunch redneck bible huggers (and im not saying im not religious) fight over what should happen to you even though its probably not what you would have wanted (chough:terryshiavo

    Well, there are foreign journalists filing stories on New Orleans. The British press has run interviews with their own trapped tourists. . .and I don't think foreign press are prohibited from covering angles on this story.

    Nice widening of the topic and flame-baiting.

    Wouldnt doubt if it is. The fucked up thing about this is the doctors who did what was right will probably get in trouble for it.

    So what do they teach you in nursing school about something like this? You should haul that article in and make the prof talk about it. . .

    Heck - my students have me pull up Crooks and Liars clips for them to start out their day. . .
