Abstract

In August of 2007, the author testified as the medical expert witness on behalf of the State of Louisiana in the St. Rita's Nursing Home criminal case. Thirty-five residents drowned as floodwaters swept over the nursing home during Hurricane Katrina. For nursing home owners, administrators, and medical staff leadership, there are additional lessons to be learned from this catastrophe.
