The in­ves­ti­ga­tion into a pa­tient’s death puts the pres­sure on ev­ery­one, es­pe­cially Frankie and Lou

TV Soap - - Primetime -

No­body’s per­fect and that in­cludes doc­tors. That hard truth is about to hit Frankie right where it hurts as she faces a hor­ror night on the ward. At the same time, she is on a team in­ves­ti­gat­ing a pa­tient’s death and they are about to present their find­ings.

Frankie (Claire van der Boom) is per­son­ally in­vested in the in­quiry. She be­came close with pa­tient Zoe be­cause of Frankie’s own ex­pe­ri­ence as an or­gan re­cip­i­ent. Zoe (Melissa Bonne) needed a new heart to sur­vive and she got one but died shortly af­ter surgery.

There was a mis­take dur­ing the op­er­a­tion that Lou (An­drea Deme­tri­ades), Frankie’s best friend, no­ticed and called at­ten­tion to but her boss Mitri (Bless­ing Mok­gohloa) didn’t take her se­ri­ously. Lou con­fided the truth in Frankie but Lou has been sworn to se­crecy by the sur­gi­cal team who are band­ing to­gether to pro­tect their own

Lou fears com­ing for­ward will risk her ca­reer as a sur­geon. She is be­ing pushed to re­veal what she knows of the truth not just by Frankie but by her other boss Maggie (Susie Porter) who hopes to gain from Mitri be­ing dis­cred­ited.

But Frankie must push her con­cerns about the in­ves­ti­ga­tion to one side while she works a night shift she’ll want to for­get.

Frankie is on her own, with sev­eral pa­tients to tend to. It means she has to pri­ori­tise one crit­i­cally ill pa­tient over the other, lead­ing to dis­as­trous re­sults.

The in­ci­dent gives Frankie new in­sight into be­ing a doc­tor as the find­ings into Zoe’s death are re­vealed.

Frankie must push her con­cerns to one side while she works a night shift she’ll want to for­get.
