Where were you on August 29, 2005 when the city of New Orleans flooded due to the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina? I recall being glued to the television watching it all play out. My heart ached for the people and the city. Prayers went out. I would, because of the relocation of so many, come to develop a loving and lasting friendship with a family that came to Clarksville, TN. The recent floods in Shreveport and surrounding areas awakened similar fears and concerns that I had in 2005. But, this [...]

Not only was this an historically-important telling of Tulane Hospital's and their parent company, HCA's, reaction to Hurricane Katrina & the following disaster, but also a very thought-provoking account of disaster-preparedness in general. The story highlights the heroic actions of many people in a wide-range of professions as well as the staff of Tulane Hospital. It also shows us the other side --- of looting, abandonment, gunfire, gangs, and desperate, awful violence. HCA's & Tulane's [...]

No big surprise here, the govt. didn't do what they said they were going to do. As for HCA as a corp. kudos to them for looking out for their people. I'm glad someone did!Now if more corporate America would look out for their people like this, we'd all be better off.

I work at an HCA hospital. They were giving these books out for free. I took it, thinking it would be an interesting read, but then it ended up being left on my bookshelve for a while. The other day I decided to pick it up. I started reading it and couldn't put it down. I was reading it as though this was my hospital that was going thru it. Yes, it is not written in a simple way like a novel, but i did tell an amazing story of what happen at Tulane during Katrina. It is very HCA biased, but it w [...]

A great story about the amazing doctors, nurses, and adminstrators who managed a massive evacuation of a for profit hospital when government organizations failed to arrive in a timely manner. The book was published by HCA but the facts remain the same. It was fascinating to watch the innovation of for profit employees while state employees at Charity Hospital waited for FEMA to arrive. It was also interesting to note that even CNN made large errons in reporting during the catastrophe. I hope mor [...]

An inspiring story, not told in the media. A must read for anyone who lives in disaster-prone areas. I work in a HCA hospital and this was given to me 2 years ago and it set on a shelf. Somehow I picked it up and read it in just a few days. I now want to send copies to many of my friends and family.

Written well, documenting the evacuation of Tulane by it's own medical staff and management. Carey interviewed these people to get truth and clear up so many media discrepancies. This is a good little docu-book worth reading and keeping as it tells of real people being truly heroic when crisis comes and Big Brother does not.

Very interesting report about the TUlane Hospital's dealings from Hurricane Katrina. We had received the book as a gift from our hospital HCA and of course the book is very pro HCA but it turned out very informative. No great litterature style there.

Stunning, slightly self-promoting story about how a dedicated staff was able to get the most critically ill patients out of Tulane Medical Center to get them evacuated to safer facilities. Bravo to these medical staffs and first responders

This book was a bit too religious for me. The descriptions of hurricane damage was interesting and was what I was wanting to learn about when I picked up this book but didn't need all the preaching. That's what turns me off about books like this.

Everyone should read this book; news accounts don't always share Everything that happens during national events.

A for-profit health care operator did for patients, family members, and staff what FEMA, the State of Louisiana, and the city of New Orleans could not do.

This book accurately describes the experiences of some of the Matas Library staff that were rescued by the helicopters.

Good behind the scenes look but too much HCA promotion. Made a serious event feel a little like an advertisement at times.
