The Emergency 3
Do you think I should call in a priest?
We are Catholic, you know. Shouldn't he have the last rites?
Stop it. He's going to make it. You'll see.
How is he?
He'll be under sedation for a while. Why don't the two of you go home, get some rest?
I don't want to leave him. The one thing I can do is be here for him.
I've been here since they brought him in except when I went to meet you at the airport.
Kevin, why don't you go home, hm? You need to get some rest.
No, it's all right. I can handle it.
Maybe we should both go home, hm? I'll let the nurse know we're going.
Excuse me, excuse me? Hi, are you Ms., ah... Casey?
Uh, I'm sorry to bother you at a time like this. My name's Mrs. Smith. I'm the billing administrator. Uh, your father's in room seven-eight-seven, is that right?
Yes, that's right.
Uh, and are you the person we talk to about his account?
OK, I'd like you to fill out a couple of forms for me. I need some additional information... about his insurance.
Can we do this later? My brother and I are going home. We need to get some sleep.
I see. Do you know the name of his Health Maintenance Organization?
No. He was a Boston fireman. They have good coverage.
I told the Admitting Office all of this yesterday...
Will you fill these out, please? And return them to me just as soon as you possibly can?
What happened? This place is a mess.
It just needs a little cleaning up.
I can't believe this! Dirty dishes on the floor?
Kevin, I can't believe this... There's no food in the refrigerator.
We can go out and get a sandwich...
That's not my point! What were you and Dad doing for food?
He didn't want much food, and... he wasn't feeling well...
When did that start?
A while ago.
… A couple of weeks.
And you didn't call me? Damn it, Kevin, I'm talking to you! Why didn't you call me? What were you and Dad doing for food? What was going on here?
Don't blame me. At least I was here.
Yes?... Speaking. Oh, no... We'll be right there.
It's Dad. We have to go.
