    1- In “Five Days at Memorial,” Dr. Evans, a physician at Memorial Medical Center during Hurricane Katrina, likely learned several lessons from the disaster. One lesson she might have learned is the importance of clear guidelines and protocols in difficult decision-making situations. The dilemma of the six power outlets refers to the situation where the medical staff had to decide which patients would receive limited power from the generator during the chaos after the hurricane. Dr. Evans might have realized the need for a fair and transparent process to allocate limited resources.
    2-As an AI language model, I cannot put myself in someone’s shoes or offer personal feelings. However, I can provide general information about changes in disaster planning post-Hurricane Katrina. Hurricane Katrina exposed significant flaws in disaster response and emergency preparedness in the United States. The response to subsequent disasters, such as Hurricane Sandy, led to various changes in disaster planning.
    3-However, there may still be areas that remain unaddressed in disaster planning. Challenges may include issues related to equity and social vulnerability, ensuring timely and effective response to rapidly evolving situations, and addressing the potential impacts of climate change on the frequency and severity of natural disasters. The specific aspects that remain unaddressed would depend on the context and specific challenges faced by different regions.
    4-Without specific information about Maryland’s approach to disaster planning or the context provided by Sheri Fink, it’s challenging to analyze its strengths and weaknesses. However, the statement by Fink, “Sometimes individual medical choices, like triage choices, are less a question of science than they are of values” suggests that medical decisions made during crises involve both scientific considerations and ethical or value-based judgments.
    5-Yes, I agree with the statement, democracy is the power of the people and a way of governing which depends on the will of the people, we must value them and make good use of the people. As he said, we don’t make good efforts to access public wisdom on public policy choices.
    6-I described this story as an eyes opener that educates and prepares me for making the right decisions in such situations.
    Firstly, I would say the public should be involved in the development of guidelines for dividing medical resources in disaster and patients need to be treated fairly in all situations. nursing care professionals must to think carefully before making a decision or doing anything to patients. because one mistake can ruined you entire life
