In an earlier draft of the script, intern Eagan planted the skeleton in a baby carriage, not Lora's bed. The startled Laura dropped the baby she was holding, with tragic results. Eagan admitted to his guilt and was fired from the hospital. However, the sequence was changed to the one which is now appears in the film.

Goofs
During the surgery scene, all the doctors, nurses, and observers are wearing face masks but only their mouths are covered. Their noses are sticking out above the masks. There is no point in wearing a surgical mask if the nostrils are exposed.
