A loving mother brings her son in for treatment. The doctor suspects that something is wrong and theorizes that the mother is deliberately making her son sick so she can rush him to the hospital and get attention for herself. When the doctor decides to restrict the mother's access to her son and reports her to Child Services, the mother decides to sue the doctor and the hospital. Some members of the hospital board don't agree with her diagnosis, or they think she's overreacting. Even away from his mother, the child remains sick. Is the doctor right or wrong?
