Malpractice (Itv) Episode 1: “Malpractice” is now available on ITV in the English language with English subtitles. In this article, I am going to tell you the summary and ending explanation of episode 1 of the series, so let’s get started.
The story is about Dr. Lucinda Edwards, who is preparing for a procedure. Dr. Ramya Morgan offers to do the task while she is explaining how to do it, but Lucinda tells her to pick up the equipment and come with her. After completing the procedure, Lucinda takes a call from Rose, and we come to know that Rose is her mom.
As Ramya enters the room, Lucinda tells her that she can’t do it again. Ramya asks her if she has seen Dr. Harrow, but she says she has not seen her, and her phone rings again. After that, she tells Dr. Oscar to go home as he has to come early tomorrow. As she is smoking outside, an emergency call comes in, and a patient is found unconscious at home, and it seems like an opioid overdose.
When Lucinda goes to the lobby, she finds a victim lying bloodied on the floor. He has been shot by a gun, and his friend threatens her to treat his friend, who is also holding a gun. As there are no beds in the hospital for any new patients, she gives the overdose case to Ramya, as she has never treated an overdose case before, and she rushes through the gunshot victim.
Later, she finds out that the overdose patient has died, and she tells Ramya that it is all her fault. At home, Tom tells her that she saved the boy’s life, so she does not need to worry about the boy’s death who died because of an overdose. When she goes to the hospital, she finds out that the patient’s parents have lodged a complaint against her. But she tells the doctor what happened that night, and the overdose patient was stable when she left her. However, the investigation team thinks the other way as they say she failed to give the patient the second dose of Naloxone, which became the reason for her death. She said she told Dr. Morgan to give her the dose when the breathing drops, but Dr. Morgan refused that claim.
Still, they said to her that they will look into the matter and will inform her after a week.
In the end, we found out that Lucinda has recommended an extra dose of medicine to the patient so that she can stand, but no one knows about that. Later that evening, she got a call from an anonymous number telling her about the extra dose she has recommended that night. Now if the investigation team finds out about that extra dose, her career will go to waste. So she decides to tell them herself.
As she is leaving, her husband Rob says to her that she decided to keep quiet, but she said they are looking at her phone records, and she has to tell the truth. However, Rob said no to her and got hit by a car on the road, and the episode ends as Lucinda runs away from the accident site.
