The Good Doctor Season 5 Episode 8 Speculation

Dr. Lim confronts Salen about the expired medication. This was a direct result of Ethicure cutting corners in order to maximize profits. She tells Salen to keep her lawyers ready because the patient is most likely to sue for their fatal mistake that caused the loss of her child. Salen tells Dr. Lim that discretion is in everyone’s best interest and that she shouldn’t tell the mother the truth until they conduct a thorough investigation.

The accumulation of lies and deceit causes Shaun to have a breakdown. It’s likely that Dr. Glassman will return to San Jose and continue to mentor Shaun. Shaun might tell the patient the real cause of her baby’s death and the hospital will have a major lawsuit on their hands.
