Dr. Jay Halstead is going to be a rather busy man on many of the upcoming episodes of “Chicago Med” this season. We know that on Tuesday night’s new episode is going to feature a crisis for him when his doctor – patient confidentiality comes into question; looking even beyond that, though, his decision with a patient about to die could to facing a lawsuit.
You’re going to get a chance to see the latter story play out on the upcoming February 9 installment entitled “Choices”; the synopsis of this installment gives you a sense as to everything that is going to be happening across the board:
“Dr. Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss) revives a “do-not-resuscitate” terminally ill cancer patient, and the repercussions prompt his quick removal from the case and a pending lawsuit against Chicago Med. A homeless man’s arrival is passed down to April (Yaya DaCosta) and an uneager Dr. Reese (Rachel DiPillo), but the circumstances surrounding his short stay catch both off-guard. Following the assessment and treatment of a bi-polar patient with an unhealthy dependence for lithium, Dr. Choi’s (Brian Tee) own personal issues come to the surface, prompting him to seek the advice of Dr. Charles (Oliver Platt). The medical staff is shocked to learn one of their own has life-threatening disease.”
Obviously, the latter part of this synopsis is what should give you the most concern. After all, you are potentially going to see someone begin a journey that could lead to losing a key component of the show, and we know that this franchise is bold enough to make a move like this. They’ve done it before, and there are always people who go in and out of working at a hospital.
