Five Days at Memorial: Life and Death in a Storm-Ravaged Hospital, by Sheri Fink

A riveting, remarkably researched story of a hospital coming apart at the seams. On Day 5 of the Katrina crisis, over a dozen of the sickest people in Memorial Hospital remained alive but had not been evacuated. By that afternoon they were all dead. The story of what happened and its aftermath netted the author a Pulitzer Prize. A must-read, particularly for those in the healthcare field (and those of us who use healthcare).
