Michael Brown's FEMA appears to have set a record providing emergency medical care for Katrina's victims:
The medical evacuation effort for Hurricane Katrina represents the largest deployment of public health officials in U.S. history.
According to Dr. Chris Trevino, the 800-bed medical facility at LSU is the largest acute-care field hospital ever created in U.S. history. Approximately 6,000 patients affected by Hurricane Katrina have been cared for in Pete Maravich Assembly Center in the last week.
