Terese and Colleen meet Jack and Chet for dinner after work. The structure of this chapter weakens since Collen essentially vanishes along with a mysteriously non-present meal, during the restaurant scene. Terese learns that hospitals must track their nosocomial infection rates (rates of hospital originated infections), which are reported to a government supervisory commission (the Joint Commission of Accreditation) that grants or withholds hospital accreditation. Terese also manipulates a visit to her office to get Jack's reaction to the new ads and then a visit to his office where she overhears that one of the autopsy cases was not plague but tularemia, another virulent infectious disease.
