No Charges Against Katrina Doctor

I’m pretty sure I blogged about this a couple of years ago — the physician in New Orleans who was investigated for giving four terminally ill patients a "lethal cocktail" of morphine and midazolam hydrochloride as Hurricane Katrina bore down on them.

A mercy killing, if you will.

The grand jury refused to indict her, so she is in the clear.  Nurses were also cleared of charges last month.
