‘Chicago Med’ episode 7 preview: Dr. Halstead faces off against doctor – patient confidentiality

Chicago MedThrough the first six episodes, it is pretty clear that “Chicago Med” has figured out both a unique and smart way to differentiate itself from the majority of the other shows that are currently airing in the medical drama, and it’s simple: It finds unique ways to get the Fire and Police Departments involved as much as possible.

Even though the synopsis below for next week’s episode “Saviors” does not give you a whole lot of an indication as to if there will be a police presence at the hospital, it’s fair to say that the promo does:

“When legal issues complicate matters that stall a life-saving bone marrow transplant, Sharon Goodwin (S. Epatha Merkerson) must decide whether to disobey direct orders or stand by and put a patient’s life in jeopardy. April (Yaya DaCosta) tends to a caring, homeless man who Dr. Charles (Oliver Platt) evaluates, only to come to an unusual diagnosis that explains his recent behavior. Dr. Natalie Manning’s (Torrey DeVitto) parents (guest stars Michael Hendricks and Regan Rohde) come to town to see their new grandchild, much to the dismay of her mother-in-law, Helen (guest star Annie Potts). Dr. Connor Rhodes (Colin Donnell) treats a couple who are injured on their first date by a hit-and-run driver, who Dr. Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss) discovers has his own reasons for causing the accident.”

The “reasons” that Dr. Halstead hears are that the driver is someone who really takes pleasure in the pain of others, and can report him as a criminal? Doctor – patient confidentiality is something that may make him think once or twice about getting the authorities involved, but at the same time this is a crime that we’re talking about here. There is no easy answer to this situation, but obviously he doesn’t want to see anyone else hurt.
