This is a suit against a hospital and a physician for negligence in the treatment of the female plaintiff. The District Court directed a verdict for the defendants at the close of plaintiffs' case. We have reviewed the record in the light of plaintiffs' contentions and find nothing to indicate that the District Court's disposition of the case was incorrect.
