1. The key decisions that kept people alive in the chapter were, The priority was given to moving their vent patients, Michael Richard found hospitals to take patients and labored to convince hospital leaders to allow the rescues to proceed, and the most critical should be out first. The man from the Department of Health and Hospitals also said he would get the hospital cleared out by the end of the day and get everybody ready to go.
The decisions that resulted to death were, The coast guard members wanted to rescue overnight, particularly after learning about the seven patients on ventilated but Dr. Deichmann told them to wait till daybreak, too dangerous to reopen the helipad. Susan Mulderick’s decision to end the airlift, also Memorial nurses told Decker the remaining vent patients were DNR and that they have to stop the operation and resume at nine in the morning, and assured Decker the patients would continue to be bagged, and ventilated by hand.
2. A white man yelled as he moved through the dimly lit respiratory care department, who came to steal from them.
Pets were brought to the hospital because they were part of the family and they needed to be together, they can’t be left alone by themselves.
Cloverleaf became an important part of the story because there was no infrastructure set up at the cloverleaf, the crew member hoisted several people from the rooftops of a flooded home, depositing them at the cloverleaf highway interchange west of New Orleans where they pour people on the grass.
3. Mark LeBlancs has a point, the senior leader on the floor said she didn’t have much information, and a way to contact her corporate office to request the ambulance, which shows she’s not concerned about the situation and is exhausted.
4. The priority system did not fit, Memorial’s doctors had a meeting they established an exception to the protocol of prioritizing the sickest patients and those whose live relied on machines, they had decided that all patients with Do Not Resuscitate orders would be prioritized last for evacuation, the major place they were evacuated to looked like a war zoom and helicopters keep descending and pour more people onto the grass also failed to provide the 600 buses, and 1200 driver needed to pick up the people being drooped there, no bathroom, no shelter, no water people looked exhausted.
The utilitarian approach was not the best, the patients seen to have little chance of survival must still be treated or evacuated, after those with severe injuries who need immediate attention to survive. the idea is to distribute care based on need because everyone deserves an equal chance to survive.
It is difficult to decide when practicing triage medicine, sorting or allocating treatment, especially in a disaster period, to maximize the number of survivors when acute care cannot be provided due to a lack of resources, people face difficult decisions about who will receive life-saving treatment and who will be left to die, even if patients were less likely to survive or live at a greater distance, both doctors and laypeople in decision making resulted in policies that prioritize a mixture both justice and efficiency.
Organ sharing should be given to those in direct need, even if these patients were less likely to survive it or lived at a greater distance from where organs became available
