What’s a medical show without a good cry? (And fear of a lawsuit.)

Needless to say, Dr. Halstead doesn’t agree, while Dr. Manning (Torrey DeVitto) just wants the patient to rest. Watch the exclusive below to see the emotionally powerful scene between Will and his patient.

Also happening in the episode, the hospital personnel have to deal with two of their own when serious problems—one physical and one psychological—are revealed. Looks like it’s time to turn to that biblical adage, "physician heal thyself…."
