The next day, David lost another
patient without any reason. What bothered David was that both these patients died of the same symptoms. In the same week, David lost two more patients with the same symptoms. David tried to find out the unusual cause of death. But,the hospital authorities go against him telling him that the various tests to be performed for finding the cause of death would turn out to be very expensive, and that they were saving money to prevent the hospital from being bankrupt.

Still, David was perseverant to find the cause of death. This led his family's and his own life in danger. Finally, David finds out that the hospital is not saving patients, it is saving money.
