Hurricane Katrina was a massive storm that impacted a large area of the Gulf Coast. The State of Mississippi Department of Health prepared a report titled "The Impact of Hurricane Katrina On Physician Practices and Health Care Provision in Gulf Coast Mississippi". Perhaps reviewing the reports "Conclusion: What Has Been Learned and What Needs to Be Done" we can head off some of the negative healthcare related consequences with relation to the mega storm, Sandy, which passed through the Northeast last week. Here's a link to the full report.
