How tired? Not that tired.
How did you score? - On your boards? - Don't know.
I can't bring myself to look.
- Any luck, I failed.
- Now, that's a positive attitude.
Part of me is afraid I'll be given a license to practice medicine one day.
- Isn't that the point? - If I was good at it, yeah.
Between annoying Attendings, butting heads with nurses and being responsible for a patient's death because I tried to be aggressive writing's on the wall for me, wouldn't you say? You're not good until you've killed someone.
Spoken like someone who hasn't.
So how you doing? Fine.
And I don't have much of a poker face, do I? Abby, pilonidal cyst in Four.
Gallant, shingles in Two.
Neela, vaginal bleeding in One.
Get to work.
Sorry, I'm late.
Had a meeting with Risk Management.
Oh, my God.
Are you okay? My feet are swollen, my back is killing me and apparently, my waddle's too slow for people.
Got a long day.
The sooner we start, the better.
All right.
We're doing interviews on the phenelzine death.
- I'll need some time off the floor.
- Are we being sued? Not yet.
Need to clarify the hospital's defense.
All right, Gallant, you're up last at 11:30.
The Attending's up last since he's the one who will be named in the suit.
God knows Carter's got assets.
That why he left the country? All right, we'll start at the bottom and work our way up.
Neela, that's you.
The guy's records fell through the cracks.
It's not like anyone did anything wrong.
What's the matter with you? This chick is hot.
- A little overweight, but in a good way.
- Not interested.
- Mike, she's your type.
- I'm busy.
- Lieutenant James on line one.
- Tell him I'll call him back.
Busy doing what? Playing soldier? You need a life.
Gallant, you treat the immersion burn in Exam Four? - Problem? - I tell you You did excellent with the d├ębridement.
Magna cum laude.
- Ever thought of switching to surgery? - I'm pretty well committed.
- If you change your mind - She has legs up to here: - Pratt.
- You're playing games.
Susan's with Risk Management, so present to me.
- Yeah, okay.
You all right? - Yeah.
Why? - How's your dad doing? - Oh, he's much better, thanks.
We have a homeless John Doe, approximately 70 years old found in a makeshift tent in Lincoln Park, cold and altered.
His sugar's at 435, so I gave him 8 units of insulin sub-Q.
- How long has he been outside? - Rectal temp's 92.
Overnight? Diabetic ulcerations on the feet.
Also has high blood pressure: 180/95.
And evidence of a prior MI on the EKG.

Check Missing Persons.
Maybe he's a wanderer.
Oh, great.
- Here.
- Seems like he's incontinent too.
My department's in utter chaos.
Since Robert, there's been no leadership.
Scheduling's a nightmare.
And nobody's representing us at the bargaining table.
- Our salaries have been cut back.
- I know.
- Well, what will you do? - Have the new department head assess the situation and get back to me about it.
- You selected a chairman? - Dr.
Weaver, Sandy on two.
Can you find out if it's urgent? Unless you prefer to be gender non-specific and simply referred to as chair.
Only dinner.
Call her back.
I'm late for a medical executive committee meeting.
I don't understand.
When was this decided? Two months ago.
Still need final approval, but that shouldn't be an issue.
Fine, but it would have been nice to have been asked.
Three months.
I don't know.
Something like that.
You don't want it? Maybe.
I don't know.
It would have been nice to be given a choice in the matter.
How long has your back been hurting, Mr.
Halpern? A couple of days now.
Did you fall or strain yourself? I slipped on the stairs about a week ago.
Might have triggered something.
I had a slipped disk a few years back.
- You have surgery for it? - No, no.
I couldn't afford it.
It just flares up once in a while.
I usually just take Vicodin.
Let me guess.
You're allergic to Tylenol and ibuprofen and Vicodin is the only thing that works.
Yeah, I don't really like the stuff, but what am I gonna do, you know? - Abby? - Tand L spine and get some urine? Yep.
We'll be right back.
Then run a tox screen.
Check his records.
Make sure he's not drug-seeking.
You read my mind.
So you think you'll match at County? I don't know.
So you basically let a desk clerk get in the way of your getting a medical history? I suppose I did.
Did you inform Dr.
Gallant that you didn't have Mr.
Sanchez's med list? - Yes.
- And yet he gave the order for Demerol? Yes.
- Do you have anything else? - No, I'm good.
Thanks, Neela.
I have a friend who's doing a study on neuroprotective agents in stroke.
They're looking for students to work in the lab.
Research? Just check it out.
This is crazy.

- Aren't you two living together now? - No.
For what it's worth, I think Luka's a good guy.
- Oh, wait.
You didn't-? - Sleep with him? No.
I went in a completely different direction.

Can you tell me your name, sir? Jones.
First name is Bob.
Is there any family we can contact, Bob? No.

What happened? No missing-persons report that fits.
Well, we'll just have to call Social Services get him placed somewhere.
I need somewhere to live.
All right, re-check d-stick, urine ketone- You know what, why am I doing this? He's Pratt's patient.
So the Klonopin's working? Okay.
No, that's good.
Just give me a call if he gets agitated again.
All right.
What are you doing? Talking to your father's nurse.
She tried to call, but you were busy.

It was smart on her part.
She didn't tell you what that alternative was? No.
Not specifically.
Did you hear Dr.
Gallant give the order to push Demerol? No.
But to be fair, I had stepped out of the room briefly.

Those heal, right? Even with surgery, there still could be some instability.
I've wanted to do this since I was a kid, you know? There are some new artificial ligaments.

I can tell you exactly what happened.
I mean, we had a very recent discharge summary documenting an adverse reaction to morphine.
The patient was in pain.
I gave the order to administer Demerol.
I shouldn't have.
End of story.
Not exactly.
Luis Sanchez's chart is incomplete.
No Attending note.
Any idea why that is? Maybe Carter didn't have a chance to do it before it was sequestered by Legal.
He was leaving for Africa that night so So he was distracted, is what you're saying.
I'm not saying that at all.
Think he needed time to get facts straight? What? No.
It was a busy night.
We had a lot of patients.
Is Dr.
Carter typically available to you? Of course he is.
What are you doing? I thought you were helping.
I am.
By preparing you for the difficult questioning you may face in a deposition.
Do you feel supported by Dr.
Carter as an Attending? Yes.
He's a great teacher.
One of the finest physicians I've worked with.
I respect his opinion tremendously.
So why didn't you present to him? It doesn't make sense because he was probably 30 feet away the whole time.
Was Dr.
Carter informed of the decisions you were making in your treatment plan? No.
I wanted to handle it myself.
I thought I was better at this job than I guess I am.
I'm completely responsible.
Nobody else is.
Will you state if deposed? Yes.
When is that supposed to take place? The deposition? We're not sure.
We haven't heard from the family yet.
- I might not be able to do it for a while.
- Why is that? The Army called me up.
I'm gonna be deployed to Iraq.
Excuse me.
- I got Halpern's records.
- It'd be nice to see you.
- Gallant? - It's always nice.
- Halpern, right.
Refresh my memory.
- Call back.
- Desperately seeking Vicodin.
- Yeah.
You hear anything about Sandy Lopez? - No, you? - No.
Puts it in perspective, huh? So Mr.
Halpern managed to hit up every local hospital for Vicodin this year.
- Know what his tox screen showed? - Narcotics and benzos? Nope.
He's clean.
Aspirin and caffeine.
Excuse me.
Could you find out about my sister? They told me she's in surgery and you'd know.
- You're Sandy's brother? - I'm one of them.
Is she okay? - Let me make a call.
- Thanks.
Falciform ligament's clamped.

I need lots of them.
What's the therapeutic range of procainamide? Four to 10 mics per mil.
Measure its active metabolite.
Procain plus NAPA should be under 40.
- Did you open that envelope yet? - Yes.
And let me guess.
You passed.
You're not a bit excited about that? I'm a little excited about it, I suppose.
Don't have to tell my parents I flunked.
I don't know.
I'm not sure it means anything.
I suppose we should at least go celebrate passing tonight.
Well, I'm not much in the mood myself.
Susan, what are you doing? Please let these be Braxton Hicks.

Let's prep the chest for a Schrock.
- Ten blade.

Nicotine, coffee and aspirin.
You're setting yourself up for an ulcer.
I don't drink coffee.
Okay, soda then.
A lot of caffeine in your system.
Over-the-counter migraine tablets.
They don't do squat, though.
Nothing works but Imitrex.

But I'm not gonna give you the Vicodin either.
That's fair enough.
You stay low.
Watch your back.
You didn't say how your meeting went.
It's gonna be fine.
Look, I'm sorry I've been- I don't know.
bitchy about this whole thing.
It's just not comfortable for me.
Lying and having someone else cover my mistakes.
And it just sort of keeps on compounding, one on top of the other.
I'm being deployed to Iraq.
I'm headed for Texas tomorrow morning.
You haven't finished your residency.
I know.
I'm gonna finish up the last few electives down there.
They called you up, just like that? Yeah.
You're a coward.
- What? What? - A coward and a liar.
I never asked you to do this for me, but you did.
Now you're leaving.
And I'm supposed to live with the fact that I killed a man and that you helped to lie for me to cover it up? - Listen, Neela- - Michael, go to bloody Iraq.
And tell yourself you've done something noble.
- I had to protect you and Dr.
- No.
You didn't.
Well, at least the contractions stopped.
So the sub-Q terb worked? She's still 1 centimeter dilated and 50 percent effaced.
You can sit up now.
So I should just take it easy, cut back on a few shifts? You're having regular contractions.
Your cervix has softened, shortened and dilated.
- Bed rest, huh? Plain and simple.
- For how long? Three to five weekers do well, full-terms do better? Oh, no way.
I can't stay in bed for five weeks! You can and you will.
Schedule an appointment for an NST with my office in a week.
This blows.
The whole day blows.
- What else happened? - Nothing.
- Oh, I failed my boards.
- What? Need a 182 to pass.
I got a 167.
Oh, Abby.
- I'm sorry.
- It's okay.
Well, how were you supposed to study? You're pulling double shifts.
It's fine.
It's not like a burning building collapsed on me or anything.
I'll take them again.
Atrium's oozing.
Another 2-0, I'll oversew the purse string.
V- fib.
Charge to 30.
I love you so much.
Come on! Clear.
- No change.
- Okay.
Teflon pledgets.
Oh, there's blood pouring out of her ET tube.
- DIC.
- More platelets and FFP! Clear! Asystole.
Resume cardiac massage.
- Mig of atropine! - You can stop.
She's gone.
Can you take it out? - By law, we're not supposed to- - Please.
Of course.
I'm so sorry.
We wanted more.
I had to twist her arm to have a baby but once Henry was here, she said, " I can do this.
Eight more and we got a team.
" Sandy had a big family.
I only had her and Henry.
What am I supposed to do now? Would you like me to talk to the family? No.
No, I'll go do it.
Hey, you hiding out or taking inventory? Oh, just looking for Reglan.
You leaving? I've been ordered to sit on my sofa for five weeks.
Sounds good to me.
Yeah, I bet.
Do people know? No, not really.
You prefer it that way? You know Look, what you did was stupid but there were a lot of circumstances that conspired to kill Luis Sanchez.
The nursing home should have put a medic alert on him.
You should have gotten a full med list, but you didn't.
If it goes to court, the Army will send me back to testify.
No, I doubt it'll happen.
People don't sue doctors they like.
And for whatever reason, Mrs.
Sanchez liked you.
Take care of yourself over there, okay? Yeah.
You have a healthy, happy baby, Dr.
- You get called in early? - No.
My shift doesn't start for an hour.
I wanted to see you.
Maybe we can get a coffee or something? Sandy Lopez died today.
- Who? - Weaver's Sandy.
Take care of yourself, Dr.
- So how long have you got? - Here? - About an hour.
- On your tour of duty? A year at least.
Maybe longer.
So you're just gonna sneak out in the cover of darkness? No " Hi, " " Bye, " " Kiss my ass.
" Nothing.
- You know, I'm not much for sendoffs.
- I don't care what you call it.
There's a war going on.
Gonna miss having you around, man.
- Yeah, right.
- No, I'm serious.
You're an honorable guy.
I'm not sure I've ever met one.
Don't go getting yourself killed.
Alex? Alex? Alex, get out here.
Mom, guess what.
Alex, turn it down, okay? I've had a crappy day, and I got a major headache.
You look good, though.
Dad's here.
Is there anything I can do? Need me to watch Henry, or do you need a ride home? He's with Sandy's family.
It's okay.
Weaver, it's okay.
It's okay.
It's okay.
- Got anything else? - No, that's about it.
You'll need this.
Rabbit's foot.
It's American for good luck, isn't it? Thanks.
You're welcome.
You'd better come back.
You know that, don't you? Yeah, I will.
You just better be a damn good doctor when I do.
You ready? Bye, Michael.
- Hi, Eduardo.
- Hey.
I'm here to get Henry.
Is he awake? Hey, listen.
He's not here.
I think he's with my aunt or something.
No, no.
You told me that Theresa- It's nothing personal, okay? I mean, I always really liked you.
Wait a minute.
You said that Theresa was taking care of him.
We're his blood relatives.
What are you talking about? What's going on here? Where's Henry? I don't know.
Where is my son? Sandy's son.
I don't understand what you're talking about.
I don't understand what you're talking about.
Where is he? - I hear him.
- No, that's mine.
- No! Let me in.
Let me inside.
- No.
- I know my own son- - No.
No, no, Kerry.
He's not- No! Let me in! I know my son's voice! Why won't you let me inside? - I'm really sorry, okay? - Please! Please! - No! - Why are you doing this? Why are you doing this? Let me in! That is my baby! Give me my son! Give me back my son!
