During Katrina, there were some serious questions raised about the care given to patients at Memorial Hospital:

There's also a very good book about this: Five Days at Memorial.

for anyone who is interested in reading a horrific account of life in a hospital when the hurricane hit, i highly recommend this book. The life and death decisions that had to take place are absolutely third world. A fantastic and dark read for sure.

A (long) article written by Sheri Fink about the incident. She expanded it into a book called Five Days at Memorial.
