Deadly Care was director David Anspaugh's last television film before directing the Academy Award-nominated film Hoosiers.[1]

The film featured an original score by the band Tangerine Dream.[5]


A critical care nurse abuses drugs and alcohol, causing her to make a near-fatal mistake in treating a patient.



The Sun-Sentinel wrote "Deadly Care may be remembered as a career footnote: as director David Anspaugh's last TV movie before making the Oscar-nominated feature Hoosiers."[1]
