Sheri Fink: Five Days at Memorial:

Life and Death in a Storm-Ravaged
Detroit native and Pulitzer Prize-
winning author Sheri Fink tells the
story of the tragedy, compassion and
life-or-death decisions at Memorial

Hurricane Katrina, the hospital was
left with little electricity, storm water
throughout the facility and caregivers
so exhausted they could hardly think.
Months after Katrina, Memorial's
professionals were facing charges that
they deliberately injected patients with
drugs to hasten their deaths. Five Days
recounts a hospital under siege and
exposes a nation poorly equipped to
handle large-scale emergencies.

Went By

Hemisphere struck.
It was a day of terror and death

billion in financial pledges. But three
years later, Haiti remains a nation of
unsanitary conditions and poverty.
