    • This play seems to have served as an unofficial pilot for the later series "The Nurses"; certainly, both play and series feature a tyro nurse of somewhat naive idealism named "Gail Lucas". Zina Bethune played her in the series; Inger Stevens, who plays her here, did do a guest shot in "The Nurses", but playing a patient, not a nurse. "The Nurses" did not carry any creator credit for the author of this play, Arthur Hailey, though he did write two best-selling novels about the medical profession, "The Final Diagnosis" and "Strong Medicine".
