In the National Capitol Region (Washington DC), especially within the city limits, the Federal Bureau of Investigations has two major facilities, FBI Headquarters, also known as the J. Edgar Hoover
(named after the former FBI Director) building, which oversees the bureau nationwide and the Washington Field Office (WFO), which handles issues within the metropolitan area. At the time the storyline was set, the Washington Field Office was located at Buzzard's Point (Southwest Washington). Agents posted at the installation, complained of its isolation, distance from major transportation hubs , and a lack of bustling city life. See more
In episode 5, there are numerous medical mistakes. For example, a person is intubated from behind the head and with a laryngoscope to prevent intubating the esophagus instead of the trachea. An intubated person cannot make a sound, not even a whimper, because the tube is fixated by a balloon below the vocal cords preventing any air flow through them. An epidural means Clarice would have had a catheter in her back, not just an intravenous catheter. None of the medications she was given in her neck or arm would have taken effect so quickly as it is unlikely that she was hit directly in a vein. They did get the defibrillator and extubation scenes correct though. See more
