"The hospital looked good...they banned us from the building" Dr. Kiersta Kurtz-Burke

Dr. Kiersta Kurtz-Burke and her personal story of being trapped at Charity Hospital during Katrina with over 1200 patients until being evacuated 6 days later. Dr. Kurtz-Burke was associated with Charity Hospital for 10 years and cared for patients in Charity Hospital during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. "The hospital looked really good," Dr. Kurtz-Burke remembers, but LSU officials "banned us from the building." Dr. Kurtz-Burke and thousands of co-workers were banned from the hospital, many lost their jobs, and all lost the opportunity to care for patients of New Orleans at Charity Hospital.
