ER: When the Bough Breaks

Dr. Ross and Dr. Del Amico's disagreement over a pediatric asthma patient is overshadowed by a school bus accident which floods the ER with severely injured children. Dr. Greene's mental state begins to affect his relationship with his daughter, and he receives some unwelcome spiritual advice from a 19-year-old patient. A crack addict accuses Nurse Hathaway of injuring her newborn. Still on a cost-cutting rampage, Dr. Weaver tells Ross to find a research grant or look into private practice, then questions Jeanie's actions to save a patient. While Dr. Benton and Carla adjust to their new baby, the strained relationship between Benton and Dr. Carter erupts into an ugly confrontation.
