Detectives Max Greevey and Mike Logan investigate the death of teenager Suzanne Morton in a hospital emergency room, after her father files a complaint saying she was murdered there. She had gone to the hospital to have her prescription for antibiotics refilled, but was dead a few hours later. All of the doctors in the case are tight-lipped about what happened, but when the detectives find that part of the girl's chart was erased with white-out, they come to believe that someone is covering up. Their investigation leads them to the hospital's Chief of Medicine, Dr. Edward Auster, an eminent cardiologist who had been drinking heavily at a reception just before going into the ER, and to past cases in which his inebriation endangered patients. The challenge for Executive ADA Stone is to mount a case against someone with his sterling reputation, and prove that he has a problem with alcohol.

Well you, uh, fell a little short of perfection on Suzanne Morton's chart.
