    -I don’t believe Foti’s perspective is accurate in the book or the snippet. Although he claimed to have done so, he was not present, and it appears that he did not examine the circumstances. The medical team as a whole shouldn’t be considered murderers because they toiled through those four days to provide the best care possible for their patients with the resources they had. The article and the book emphasize how the government’s neglect of them and the ineffective rescue efforts led to their current predicament. For the common person, the circumstances mentioned put into perspective how immensely resilient and brave the medical professionals who stayed were and why they should be regarded as heroes.
    -It was important to have data on high-profile killings and the murder rate since it supported the idea that they endured terrible living conditions. That they were so desperate to put Dr. Pou and the other nurses in jail when additional crimes were committed during the hurricane shows how ludicrous it is.
    -The Boston Legal program ultimately provided the audience with a fantastic overview of the scenario. The program portrayed the same situation but made sure to highlight Memorial’s setting and how few options they had for the last several patients, presumably making Dr. Pou and the team to look like murderers the public as well as them had been unhappy over this.
    -The key question, in my opinion, is whether or not these individuals gave the go-ahead for these potentially lethal quantities of sedative medicines to be administered.
    -Because of AMA regulation, doctors cannot be held accountable for their actions during catastrophes like Katrina unless they are willfully negligent. Pou contends that her intention was to offer comfort care, for which the AMA had no initial standards
