Katrina's Smallest Victims

Katrina's Smallest Victims

When Hurricane Katrina's high winds and floodwaters knocked out the major hospitals in New Orleans, medical personnel stayed with the hospitalized children and expectant mothers until they could be transported to Woman's Hospital in Baton Rouge. This LPB documentary tells the story of the heroic efforts by Woman's Hospital personnel to not only get these fragile babies and expectant mothers out of New Orleans but to handle their medical and personal needs at their own facility in Baton Rouge.

Katrina's Smallest Victims was produced by Dorothy Kendrick, who was nominated for both national and regional Emmy awards for her documentary Living With Cancer. She has been recognized twice in the last two years by the Louisiana State Medical Society for Excellence in Medical Reporting for programs on the risks of childhood obesity. She is the current holder of the Medical Society's top award for Excellence in Broadcast Reporting.
