10x17 "THE STUDENT" Kertzenstein, Lester.
Lester.
Lester, Lester.
- Very polite.
- He should try Pathology.
That way his patients die before he gets to them.
I heard he wants Radiology anyway.
Second tier.
Lockhart, Abby.
- Very strong clinical skills.
- Efficient when she needs to be.
Knows where to spend her time.
Only one still not sure about Abby is Abby.
Does she want Emergency Medicine? As much as she wants anything.
All right.
Rank to match.
Rasgotra, Neela.
- Intelligent, very sweet.
- Studious.
Studious? She's the smartest one on the floor.
Come on.
She could be more assertive.
She has a tendency to hang back, avoid getting into traumas.
- She's cautious.
It's good.
- She's not ER.
She'll be a star in internal medicine or research something using your intellect, but she's not an ER doc.
Since when did intellect become a liability to working in the ER? There was a memo while you were in Africa.
Because I think she's excellent.
She basically saved Frank's life.
She's thoughtful, but she's deliberate.
Is that code for passive and slow? - She's a student.
She's gonna get faster.
- And in four months she'll be a doctor.
I say rank to match.
That's not the consensus.
The consensus is wrong.
Okay.
The NRMP list doesn't have to go out right away.
Carter, change our minds.
At least you have time for your reclamation project.
I'm on a plane to Africa tonight.
- For how long? - About a week or so.

- Chuck said he'd wait for you outside.
- Chivalry.
Time of death, 8:07.
- How long has he been here? - Sat in Triage for seven hours.
- And back in a room for the last two.
- Good luck, Carter.
You irrigated, yeah? I was concerned that the lac might extend to the joint.
- For nine hours? - I thought I should wait on you.
You think Ike Ryan's serving burgers this early? I really need a burger.
What is up with you? I think we got a case of sympathetic pregnancy going on here.
Excuse me? I have all the symptoms.
Nausea, gas, increased salivation, cravings.
- I gotta pee all the time.
- You had all that before I got pregnant.
You know, I have to sit down.
Just get me whatever you're getting.
All right.
See, we're together in this.
Morning.
Morning.
- When are you due? - Another month or so.
I love kids.
When my wife was pregnant with ours it was the best thing ever.
- Yeah.
It's pretty great.
- We're divorced now.
Oh, I'm sorry.
Women are never more beautiful than when they're pregnant.
Wish it felt that way.
Hey don't let anyone ever tell you you're not sexy.
Because you are sexy.
Thank you.
Any real man knows that there's nothing better than making love to a round, smooth, nurturing mother-to-be.
I hope you don't take that the wrong way.
- There's a right way? - I didn't mean to offend you.
- You know what? It's okay.
- Can I touch it? - Excuse me? - Your belly.
Can I touch it? - Hey, what's going on? - You know what? We need to go.
- What are you doing? - I was just talking to the lady.
He wanted to touch my belly.
- Is he hitting on you? - Ease up.
I don't see a ring.
- God, my lip.
- Must be the hormones.
It was flagrant assault.
I called the cops.
My lawyer's on the way.
- You molested me first.
- I asked you an innocent question.
- It was not innocent.
- That caveman decked me for exercising my freedom of speech! Long as I'm stitching your lip, you have no freedom of speech.
He was defending me! You didn't need defending.
I was just being friendly.
Order a nasal series and let me know when his x-rays are back.
- What a creep.
- Could have punched him in his teeth.
- That way they can't talk.
- He apologize? - No.
But he called the cops.
- To what? To turn himself in? No.
Come on.
We have to have a little chat.
No, I understand.
You have a great time.
Yeah, next weekend.
- Morning.
- Hey there.
- What's wrong? - It's Alex's birthday tomorrow.
- Yeah, I heard.
- I wanted to throw him a party.
But Austin's his only friend and his folks are taking him skiing.
- Get him a clown.
- Yeah.
Good idea.
What's wrong with a clown? Kids love clowns.
Next time inject five cc's of fluorescein and observe under a Wood's lamp.
I wasn't sure.
Then come find me, don't just wait.
I didn't want to interrupt the meeting.

- Dr.
Chen? She's had it in for me- - Neela.

The night nurse agreed to stay late.
I'm not coming back.
Your father won't wear the diaper.
He throws food at me.
When I try to help dress him, he yells very bad words.
I appreciate your patience.
You know, this isn't really him.
I know he's a very good man, Dr.
Chen, but I can't do it anymore.
If you could just give me a few days until I can get a replacement- Here's my address.
You can send my last check there.
- And give him this for me.
- Lucia I pray for him.
I don't like working on old people or children or drunks.
And what's with all the sick people? They make it such a drag.
He's just motivating you for the match rankings.
You know, maybe they're right.
Maybe this job's just too fast for me.
Too unpredictable.
It's a big hospital.
If ER's not a good fit- Then what? NICU made me wanna jump off the roof.
Pedes is full of screaming brats and parents and ob-gyn's a lifetime of overnights and malpractice suits.

It's not just men.

Then I got pregnant again.
My dad hired him on at his roofing business.
Don't usually work when it's icy.
But there was a job that he wanted to finish before Christmas.

- How's Luis? - He's stable.
It's looking pretty good.
- Is there something I should know about? - No.
You did what you were told.
Gallant's supervising resident.
Should have known not to order up a drug without a medical history.
He didn't.
I did.
You ordered the Demerol? I assessed it, I ordered it, I pushed it.
And you didn't run it by an Attending or a Resident? - No.
- Because I asked you to be autonomous? Found an Arabic interpreter for your belly-pain lady.
Thank you.
All right, we need to talk about this, the three of us.
- Everything okay? - Fantastic.
Oh, Lavecchia's results.
Kidney stone from this morning.
No hydro, pain-free with Toradol and ready to go home just like you said.
Didn't need the Demerol after all.
Still have the vial? - I'll put it back in lockup.
- I used it for a patient.
Sam, did you get labs back on Tevin? - How's Tevin doing? - He's doing much better.
- I wanna go home.
- Mr.
Walker.
Hey, wanna pick out a sticker? Tevin tested positive for sickle cell anemia.
That's impossible.
I told you I don't carry the gene.
Maybe there was a mistake with your test.
Maybe there was a mistake with your test.
What your son has, splenic sequestration, is consistent with sickle cell.
A form that's very manageable.
You're not listening.
I told you I went to a genetic counselor.
He said I'm not a carrier that our son could not get the disease unless both parents are.
That's true.
So what? You're saying I'm not his father? What I'd like to do is send his blood for a more advanced test.
Just to be sure.
Send my blood too.
Test me again.
Neela.
Carter wants to talk to me after my shift.
- I told him what happened.
- You what? I didn't think it was right for us to lie about it.
Nobody needed to know.
That was the point.
Please, someone! Please help! Something's wrong! He went into V-tach.
Unsuccessful cardioversion at 200.
- Get him off the vent, bag him! - Please.
He can't die.
Charge to 300.
Clear.
No change.
Try 360.
- Need any help? - Amp of epi after the next one.
- Charged.
- Clear.
- V-fib, 100 of lidocaine.
- This is not supposed to happen.
Go and find Dr.
Carter now.
- Let's go, 360 again.
- Clear.
Come on, hit him again, 360.
Clear.
- Still in fib.
- Three sixty again.
Clear.
Asystole.
- How long has it been? - Shall we try the high-dose epi? Forty-two minutes.
Run the dopamine.
We still have time.
- Or we can pace him.
- Neela.
- Let's try pacing him.
- Tie off the lines leave the ET for the coroner.
Carter, inform the family and then meet us.
Are his tests back? They confirmed my diagnosis.
The good thing is most kids do very well with folate and prophylactic antibiotics.
Good.
That's good.
I also ran your blood through.
- The tests indicate that- - Is there anything affecting my health that I need to know about? Not really.
No.
All that piece of paper is gonna tell me is whether or not he's got my genes.
Either way, he's still my son.
I'm his father.
From a medical standpoint, it's a bit more complicated.
Liza My wife and I, we We went through a rough patch about five years ago.
We broke up for a few weeks.
She got pregnant right after we got back together.
We've been happy ever since.
She's gonna want to know about Tevin's condition.
I'll tell her that I'm a carrier.
He got it from both of us.
And he's gonna be okay.
He's in here, Mrs.
Walker.
- Honey, is he all right? - He's fine.
He's fine.
Did you get his labs back? - Is he the father? - Yeah.
Hey, I didn't mean to keep ragging on your suggestions before.
Maybe Mr.
Jekyll's isn't a bad idea.
Mr.
Hyde's.
Look, I know I'm not exactly Carol Brady.
So I really wanted it to be special.
It will be.
Be ready to go in a half-hour.
I have to pick something up, okay? Was the med list current? I think we should stick to protocol.
As the Attending, I'd like to review this with my staff before we do this.
Was the med list current or not? It was recent.
It wasn't completely up to date.
And no one checked with the nursing home? - I tried.
- You tried? - Abby, why didn't you push the meds? - I was called out.
But the result wouldn't have been any different.
As the nurse, it's your responsibility to double-check allergies and interactions.
I thought that had been done to the- It's a case of managing a patient's pain with incomplete information.
I suspect a jury won't see it that way.
- Who made the decision? - I did.
You did? So now we let medical students push pain meds without supervision? - That's not what happened.
- I was with a patient.
Neela did exactly what I told her.
Actually, that's not- You need a few minutes to get your story straight? What does it say in the chart? Exactly what I've been saying.
I ordered the drug, and Neela pushed it.
And is that accurate? Like I said, I wasn't in the room.
- Simple question.
Is it accurate? - As far as I know yes.
A young man comes in here and dies of a lethal drug reaction that could have been prevented with one phone call.
Next time why don't we just send a blank check to the family's attorney? Mom! Mom! - Son of Sam is back.
- Mom! - What are you doing here? - Luka picked me up.
It's amazing! - We gotta go, though! - Hold on.
I'll take those.
If we hurry, we can get there by 11.
What are you talking about? What are you wearing? Luka said I have to wear a life vest for the boat.
Boat? What boat? Isn't it awesome? It's bigger than our whole apartment.
Wow.
You really went a whole other direction.
A weekend in the great outdoors.
Fishing, camping, burning s' mores.
-S' mores.
Do you know what that is? -White thing on a stick.
Come on, you gotta see inside.
- Wait.
Where are we going? - I rented a spot at Lake Geneva.
Bottom of the ninth, two outs, nobody on and here comes Kovac with a clutch home run.
Is that baseball? How you gonna back this thing out? Mr.
Joss's triple-A repair went well.
He's stable in the ICU.
And Dr.
Edson's finishing up on the perirectal abscess right now.
And do you know a good cheap red wine that goes with spicy food? I have a date.
Two nights in a row.
It's with the teacher tonight.
Okay.
Zinfandel.
I'm not completely comfortable with waking up with one man and going out with another the next night.
Well, if we were guys, we'd be talking about carburetors right now.
So you don't think it's slutty? No.
I just won't sleep with him.
That sounds like a good plan.
- Good night.
- Good night.
Women plan, God laughs.
Hey, when did I become the guru of sluttiness? - Did you start that banana bag on Vern? - Three times.
He keeps going off to the bathroom and coming back drunk.
I think I should delete emergency medicine from my match list.
- One mistake.
I pushed you too hard.
- No.
What they said about me in your meeting was all true.
Look, you're a talented doctor.
And you did a lot of good things today.
Nothing I did on this shift can convince me or anyone else that I belong here.
Yesterday you were a little too cautious.
Today you were a little too reckless.
Somewhere in the middle is the way to practice emergency medicine.
I just want you to know I shouldn't have left you alone with the patient until he was stable.
It's my fault.
What you did was the sweetest, dumbest thing anyone has done for me.
Well, something like this could have derailed your career.
Worst that'll happen to me is discipline, counseling.
I'll be all right.
You don't look all right.
Seems kind of silly now, but out in the bay this morning, I was I was thinking about asking you out.
I was thinking of saying yes.
I have that cefoxitin for Mr.
Martin.
I just need the extension tubing.
- Are you okay? - I'm fine.
I'll take care of it.
- Let me help you find it.
- I said I can do it! Bottom drawer.
Well I suppose it's time to call it a night.
- You're welcome to stay a little longer.
- No, no, no.
I really should get going.
I'll get my coat.
I'll help you find it.
It was such a lovely evening.
And I am so glad that the girls like each other.
Ella's a great kid.
Oh, and it was really good of you to pick her up from school.
Thank you so much.
You want me to carry her to the car for you? No, no.
No, I'm fine.
I can manage.
So good night.
You should have come and talked to me.
You know why I backed you up in there? Because if Weaver knew the truth you'd be done.
I know you went out on a limb for me but I could just say I got confused.
You could have.
Until you falsified the chart.
- But - That's a felony.
Okay.
- Then I gotta go tear it up.
- Too late.
Why? Why? It's just one entry on an otherwise blank order sheet, okay? Nobody's gonna know it's missing.
We can talk to Weaver again.
It's too late! It's already up in Legal.
You know, you guys sit up there and you decide who's gonna go and who's gonna stay.
I mean, why did you have to push her? Why'd you have to push her?! The only reason she screwed up is you made her think she wasn't good enough! She wasn't cutting it! We're talking about you now, Michael.
I wasn't thinking.
I'm sorry.
Yeah.
Me too.
