Hey, everyone - I can't even remember the last time I posted here, but I know it was multiple years ago. I've since resurrected a project of mine and have worked it almost to completion, but I have a question relating to technicalities in the plot and need some help. One of the scenes in my project involves a blood relative of my MC getting involved in a car accident. The relative is taken to the hospital, but the internal injuries are too severe to fix with surgery. She does not want life support, so she's put on a morphine drip to make her comfortable. My MC is this character's emergency contact, and I need the hospital to call her and inform her of the event. The problem is, I have no idea how this conversation would go in reality. I don't know what the hospital is allowed to say over the phone (or if there's a restriction at all), what has to be said when my MC arrives at the hospital, etc. Keep in mind that the characters ARE related by blood. This is one of the most important scenes in the work, so I really want to get it right. The part where my MC is sitting by the condemned character's bed, the eventual death, and the aftermath I can deal with as far as personal experience is concerned, so I'm not worried about any of that. The issue is with the phone call from the hospital. Any help would be greatly appreciated, as this is one of the only scenes that stands between me and a finished draft. Thanks!
