Storyline

As if General Hospital weren't stressed enough by an official emergency drill observed by state emergencies director Doug Hanson and five ambulances on the way after a real tunnel collapse, ruthlessly ambitious bed-hopper nursing administrator Karin Hatcher is bloodily beaten to death and left in the morgue, but the splatters pass unnoticed among all the fake blood for the drill. She already got the hospital job head nurse Maggie Dennings wanted, but aimed at Hanson's. Jesse and his frisky girl-friend nurse Susan Hilliard still hope to get away on romantic trip to Carmel. Next schizophrenic chemo-patient painter Art Amador is killed, possibly as an inconvenient witness, but Steve finds his identity is stolen twelve years ago by more famous Martin Beckman, his death drastically changes the value of each's works. A prominent patient, hospital board member Peyton Cartwright, one of Karin's lays, also owns a Beckman collection... Written by KGF Vissers
