"Cover-Up" begins with a guy having a heart attack and being brought to a local emergency care clinic. Unfortunately, the doctor who SHOULD have been on duty stepped out for a couple hours and he left his buddy in charge. The problem is that although his friend is a doctor, he is in no way qualified in emergency medicine...none. As a result of his incompetence, the man dies--the victim of improper treatment. However, the doctor who SHOULD have been there showed up and orchestrated a cover-up to hide what really happened. The only clues that something improper happened was the presence of a drug that actually killed the guy as well as Quincy's niece--the nurse who witnessed some of the blundering that killed the man. But, with doctors and the head of the clinic working hard to hide the truth, can Quincy get to the bottom of it?
This is a rather scary episode. I am not sure if unqualified doctors today can work in emergency clinics like they did in the show, though pretty much any doctor can go in practice doing things like plastic surgery without expert training. As I said, very scary for all of us potential patients! On top of this, the final minutes of the show at the coroner's inquest were great--very, very damning as Dr. Quincy described the horrible things the men did to do the cover-up. It was amazingly gripping--and one of the better moments in the series.
