‘LifeCare’ Workers ‘Mercy Kill’ Invalids During Hurricane Katrina, New Info Illuminates

Secret court documents reviewed by NPR and not yet available to the public reveal further disturbing details about
mercy killings
during Hurricane Katrina, with specific regard to the seventh floor, leased to the LifeCare hospital management group, of the Memorial Medical Center.

Administrators interviewed,
say they were told that the ‘evacuation plan’ for the seventh floor was to not leave any living patients behind, and that ‘a lethal dose would be administered’.

All the patients were classified
short for Do Not Resuscitate.

A nurse told LifeCare’s pharmacy director that the hospital’s seventh-floor LifeCare patients were critical and not expected to be evacuated with the rest of the hospital.

I’m sorry, did you say Hippocratic or Hypocritic oath?

Macabre, fattening your bottom line with our loved one’s lives.

Makes one want to mercy kill some corporate hospital workers.

Shotgun to the head.
