First. I worked with Dr. Pou as a medical student. I can tell you that she is an excellent ENT surgeon. She only did the toughest of Bilateral necks and 2-5 dissections. She averaged 8-10 hours in the OR (not the fastest of ENTs but good for an academic practice), but she was always pleasant, allowed the chief resident to drive the cases and just observed, and truely cared about her patients. Second, she was arrested today on 2nd degree murder along with two nurses from Memorial. She was arrested and NOT charged..there has been no grand jury. She is accussed of euthenizing DNR patients with midazolam and morphine on the wednesday after Katrina. There are some things I want to say about this case. First, none of us were there to assess the patients and can put ourselves in her shoes. Second, I know that the SICU is on the second floor and the first floor was flooded. Third, she was seen by Dr. Bryant King "carrying syringes filled with medications to those patient's room." Lastly, the sheriff has something to prove here. I do not know what it was, but he is making a political statement. She offered to come in if they were going to arrest her. Instead, the police showed up to her home and she was brought to NO Central lock-up and booked. I am not against arresting people at home, but not if they offer to come in. All of the names are of public record so I felt it was safe to use them. Comments?
