    • Partial Inheritance from Patient (P#), Surgeon (S#)
    • Full Inheritance from Date-Surg
    • PSA-Drug is defined by Drug
    • (Method) Report: Select * as from Patient, Surgeon, Drug, Date-Surg, Surgery (this object class)
  • Object: Outpatient-Surgery (rate) -- Full inheritance from Surgery.
