Storyline

Tom becomes infatuated with a strange young woman and learns that she is a nurse in the local hospital. He determines to make her acquaintance and feigns illness that he may be taken to the hospital. Tom, however, makes the mistake of confiding in his friend Bill, who, being a practical joker, sees an opportunity to have some fun at Tom's expense. Bill communicates with the hospital and informs Nora, the nurse, that Tim is laying siege to her heart through crafty subterfuge. Nora and the doctors then proceed to make things lively for the invalid (?) and Tom forgets his romance in a strenuous escape. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
