Doctor, Nurses Murdered Patients After Katrina

`A doctor and two nurses who worked through the chaos that followed Hurricane Katrina were arrested overnight Monday on suspicion of murder, accused of giving four patients stranded at their flooded hospital lethal doses of morphine and a sedative.

“This is not euthanasia. This is homicide,” Louisiana Attorney General Charles C. Foti said. [..]

The arrest warrants said Pou and the two nurses intentionally killed four patients “by administering or causing to be administered lethal doses of morphine sulphate (morphine) and midazolam (Versed).”‘
