An experienced psychiatric nurse with extensive and varied training as a writer, John R. Batty turned his keen investigative eye to the circumstances inside hospitals and care facilities during Hurricane Katrina. As part of his master’s practicum in 2006, Batty interviewed the nursing staff at Medical Center of Louisiana at New Orleans about their experiences during and after the storm. Combining the staff’s heroic stories with his own research, Batty was able to evaluate and share his knowledge of the evacuation of patients and the administration of medical care during disasters. He and his colleague Gail Tumulty presented their findings at the 2007 International American Nurses Association Conference in Atlanta, Georgia.
Batty was born in New Orleans and lived in Texas, Arkansas, and Mississippi before returning to the New Orleans area. He received a master’ of science in nursing and healthcare system management from Loyola University New Orleans. Out of six thousand applicants, he was one of fifty-four nurses selected for the Greater New Orleans Health Service Corps Grant due to his service during Hurricane Katrina.
