A tense E.R. spins further into chaos when a bitter Dr. Romano assumes control and offends nearly everyone with his inept and dictatorial policies, while Dr. Lewis is pleasantly surprised by the visit of an intimate relative. Meanwhile, a sympathetic Dr. Kovac employs Dr. Corday's help in his quest to bring a sickly Croatian boy to America for his only chance to live. Corday also counsels a frightened young pregnant women whose cancer jeopardizes both her life and the baby's. Elsewhere, Corday's nanny accidentally runs over the foot of a cunning street salesman Dr. Pratt scrambles to buy Dr. Chen a gift for her birthday; and Lewis is startled at what happens to a woman who fell and is admitted with a broken wrist.
