Five Days at Memorial, Life and Death in a Storm-Ravaged Hospital

Wilson Award and the ALA Andrew Carnegie MedalAn NPR “Great Reads” Book, a Chicago Tribune Best Book, a Seattle Times Best Book, a Time Magazine Best Book, Entertainment Weekly's #1 Nonfiction Book, a Christian Science Monitor Best Book, and a Kansas City Star Best BookPulitzer Prize winner Sheri Fink's landmark investigation of patient deaths at a New Orleans hospital ravaged by Hurricane Katrina – and her suspenseful portrayal of the quest for truth and justice.In the tradition of the best investigative journalism, physician and reporter Sheri Fink reconstructs 5 days at Memorial Medical Center and draws the reader into the lives of those who struggled mightily to survive and to maintain life amid chaos.After Katrina struck and the floodwaters rose, the power failed, and the heat climbed, exhausted caregivers chose to designate certain patients last for rescue. Months later, several health professionals faced criminal allegations that they deliberately injected numerous patients with drugs to hasten their deaths. Five Days at Memorial, the culmination of six years of reporting, unspools the mystery of what happened in those days, bringing the reader into a hospital fighting for its life and into a conversation about the most terrifying form of health care rationing.In a voice at once involving and fair, masterful and intimate, Fink exposes the hidden dilemmas of end-of-life care and reveals just how ill-prepared we are in America for the impact of large-scale disasters—and how we can do better. A remarkable book, engrossing from start to finish, Five Days at Memorial radically transforms your understanding of human nature in crisis. From the Hardcover edition.

About this book
"An indispensable sourcebook... Emphasis falls on the variegated, often joyful, culture of the Polish Jews, on what existed before the garden was ruined." --Geoffrey Hartmann, The New Republic "From these marvelous selections, one can see an entire culture unfolding." --Curt Leviant, New York Times Book Review "This newly revised version of the classic study... is a pleasure for the eye and the soul! One of the seminal studies of the impact of the Shoah on European Jewry, it is even more moving in its new incarnation than in its original version. More than a collection of studies of books of remembrance and mourning, this volume asks how one can mourn for a world lost and still live in the present and the future." --Sander L. Gilman "Kugelmass and Boyarin have done a splendid job of combing the vast memorial book literature to select the most revealing accounts of Jewish life in interbellum Poland. Ordinary people speak in this volume with an immediacy and poignancy that cannot help but touch the reader. In the time since it first appeared, From a Ruined Garden has become a classic. Its reappearance in an updated and expanded form is most welcome." --Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett "In this magnificent collection, the editors combine a profound 'feel' for the vanished world of Polish Jewry, the anthologist's skill at selecting the telling example, and the anthropologist's sophisticated understanding of how these testimonies should be read. A marvelous introduction to this rich literature." --Peter Novick Polish Jewish survivors of the Holocaust compiled memorial books to preserve the memory of their destroyed communities. They describe daily life in the shtetl as well as everyday life during the Holocaust and the experiences of returning survivors. These memories paint a haunting picture of a way of life lost forever.

    Five Stars

    So disappointed

    1/5 Mary - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Solar Lighted Weeping Angel Garden Memorial (Kitchen) I was hoping to be able to give 5 stars when I received my Angel, but isn't possible. I'm absolutely not one of those that complain or give bad reviews for every little ridiculous thing, but my Angel has cracks in a few places, hot glue showing in numerous places, including where I definitely didn't want hot glue to show, and that's where the beautiful poem is! When it's lit up, the glue REALLY shows! I REALLY wanted this Angel for my Son's grave, and hoped that I'd be one of the lucky ones that had no problems with it. I can understand small issues, but there's numerous cracks and glue showing. The Angel and poem are beautiful and I love the whole concept of it, but I'm so disappointed in the way mine looks. The weight of it is perfect! I will say that. And it did arrive as was specified. Just sad I got a defective one too.., September 14, 2016

    Delighted

    5/5 Delighted - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Solar Lighted Weeping Angel Garden Memorial (Kitchen) I love my weeping Angel. It is very pretty and a nice addition to my family memorial garden I created in my back yard. Found some really neat memorial rocks that you can personally engrave from Gifts For You and was able to create the perfect memorial garden. The only thing I wasn't expecting to buy is batteries since the Angel is suppose to be solar. Other than that I would recommend this product to others who want a nice piece in their memorial gardens.

    Beautiful locket!!

    5/5 w.wahiker (Seattle, WA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: "Always in My Heart" Memorial Urn Locket-Filigree Pewter Tone (Misc.) I absolutely love this locket!! It's a great quality, perfect size, chain is durable and strong. I would not have been more pleased by any of the lockets sold at the funeral home for more than 4X the price!I'm confused by other reviews of this item that state the locket pops open and the canister falls out...... I don't see how that can happen because the chain goes through the two loops which "lock" the locket closed. Maybe the design has changed, but mine looks the same as the item that is pictured, so I'm just not sure.

    1/5 Ebonie Skinner - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: "Always in My Heart" Memorial Urn Locket-Filigree Pewter Tone (Misc.) I received my necklace in a timely manner it was bigger than I thought it would be and very pretty. I was happy with it and took it right to the funeral home to get filled with my Grandfathers remains. I was so happy with the thought of always having my Grandfather with me but, that didn't last long the necklace broke the second day of having it and with the urn already being filled I didn't try to return it. So I do not recommend at all and am hoping I can find something else to hold my Grandfather close by me. It shouldn't have broke so easy like that.

    so impressed

    5/5 nanjam (western Pennsylvania) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: No Tears in Heaven Necklace I purchased 2 of these beautiful necklaces. My mother passed away in February of this year, she was the glue to this family, 2 girls & 4 boys, my sister & I have really had a difficult time with her passing. I will give my sister 1 for Christmas, our first one without our dear mom. They are just gorgeous & look like, expensive jewelry store, necklaces. Definitely looks like I paid a lot more than what I actually paid for them. Thank you for making such a beautiful piece to commemorate someones passing. The sentiment card's poem is just beautiful.

    My grandma was in one of the more painful and confusing stages of bereavement

    5/5 savannah - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: No Tears in Heaven Necklace My grandpa passed away early a year before I purchased this necklace. My grandma was in one of the more painful and confusing stages of bereavement, wondering if he was still with her, and luckily I found this necklace. I had it shipped to her house and she received it very quickly. She was so touched by the poem because it's written as if the loved one is speaking it directly to them.
