    Hospital fire in India kills 80!

    I am so saddened to hear this because the sick are the hardest to evacuate during a fire. I am sure many of the dead must have been those who could not move.

    This makes me so sad and scares me at the same time, since I work in a doctor's office with a LOT of elderly patients. On the day of the DC earthquake back in August, I had actually left work early that day, but my coworkers later all felt very guilty for their first and complete instinct being to flee for their own safety. One of them said that her first thought was that another 9/11 was happening and she literally dropped the blood pressure cuff and ran for her life. We had so many patients in wheelchairs that day (and on any given day!), there was no way in hell we could have gotten them out of a high rise building even if we'd tried. I'm SO glad it was just a minor earthquake.

    RIP to all the victims.

    I think this quote is very telling:

    Omar Abdullah, the chief minister of the state of Jammu and Kashmir, summed up the mood when he sent this message on Twitter: “Every time I see incidents like #AMRI I’m convinced we really are a 3rd world nation with delusions of greatness.”

    Terrible! How sad for the patients and their families. I hope they can find and fix all the problems so that tragedies like this one can be avoided.

    My condolences to all those affected.
