13. Hmmm. I'm an RN and I don't feel compelled to take extra risks for
others, especially if they could have evac'ed and didn't. It isn't part of the job or the vocation, IMO. I would feel really badly for anyone who wanted to leave but couldn't.

I don't think they should stay unless they are part of a special diaster team, either formed by their employer or the Red Cross. By staying and not being a part of a team like this, I think they could end up being a user of resources, not a provider.

I'm staying where we are, but it was very early this morning when we got the news about Rita tracking further north. Our mandatory evac orders have been lifted.
