"The Detectives" (Part 2 of six) follows staffers as they try to figure out what's ailing youngsters who arrive at the ER of Chicago's Children's Memorial Hospital. "The quicker the clues to illnesses are found," says narrator Sherry Stringfield, "the quicker treatment can start." Some cases (a boy hit near the eye with a BB) are easier to diagnose than others---one girl is having hallucinations and a boy has been behaving strangely since he had his appendix taken out and is almost uncontrollable. Doctors don't think the cause is psychiatric, though. They think something's physically wrong.
