ER: Refusal of Care

A woman is brought in suffering from the effects of a hunger strike, but she will not accept food or help until she has proof that the INS will grant her son's deportation case a new hearing. Neela, Sam, and Dr. Lewis are incapable of treating her as long as she and her lawyer refuse aid -- which goes against all the doctors' training. Meanwhile, Abby, despite her suspicions, is unable to prove that 72-year-old Birdy Chaddock is the victim of elder abuse.
