After an assassination attempt was made on President Wayne Palmer, he was rushed down to the medical center in the presidential bunker. Welton and his team operated on Wayne, who was in critical condition. Wayne had surprisingly strong vitals for his condition, but he needed to be put into a chemically induced coma in order to stay stabilized.
Karen Hayes later confronted Welton and asked about Wayne's condition. When Karen asked if Wayne could be brought back to consciousness, to handle a matter of National Security, Welton highly advised against it. Bringing Wayne out of his comatose state could cause permanent damage. Welton also told Hayes that he would need consent from a family member, particularly Wayne's sister Sandra, who was present at the bunker.
