Details revealed about deaths at Memorial Medical Center after Katrina

An investigation by Sheri Fink of ProPublica reveals "what really happened to some of the patients who died at New Orleans’ Memorial Medical Center in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina." Among her findings, Fink reports that more patients than had been previously reported were given lethal injections, and some of those patients were near death when they were euthanized. She also looks at who was involved in the decisions made at the hospital, and why those choices were made.
