Also, I don't like the idea that the doctor would be considering visiting a patient. As an attorney, I'd be talking to the doctor making it clear that until we were sure what she was going to do, he had to stay far away from that kind of situation. Can't suspend disbelief on that.

I'm not having quite the same reaction you are, but, working in a law firm, it's sending up red flags for me. Right now, as far as we know, he's not suspected of any wrongdoing. My fear is Ty is going to say something to the mother and her next call will be to a lawyer. While he did make an error, I don't see him being fired over it (it seemed to me, while he didn't ask, the mother also didn't share her son's full medical history), but if he opens the hospital up to a lawsuit, THAT they may fire him for.

Yeah, it's not that he would be fired, it's that he would be sued and the hospital too. The exposure issue is hard for me to stop thinking about. As counsel for these hospitals, you put the doctors on guard: Anything they say could be used against the hospital; there's a right way and a wrong way to say 'sorry' -- and more like that, because wrongdoing has nothing to do with it. Hospitals settle cases where there was no wrongdoing all the time. For me, the idea that he's doing something that I know he would have been *warned* against and he's not sweating the risk . . . doesn't feel real [This from someone who is reading about dragons!].
