He's also the only person who would know which specific things in the infirmary were valuable.

Or, is it that after being bitten there is a chance of a bite related infection which, by extension would cause death = walker ??
It's accepted by the group (and the comic, and the game) that a bite is so toxic as to be 100% (or near) fatal.
It's not very realistic (even for a zombie show), but considering they don't currently have antibiotics, it's close enough for me to let it slide.

I -hate- that they brought that up, since that means it won't happen. Dammit, Lori!
All in all, than was a leaner, meaner, brisker show. While we're still kinda screwed by having the lead couple miscast (lincoln seems like he should play heels, and Lori should only play psychos), it's a good sign that this episode had so little to bitch about, and so much to enjoy.
One area that nobody should have complaints about is the effects team. The zombie work, the decapitations, the amputation... top notch stuff.
And yeah, Maggie can live forever in my book. Her glee at figuring out how to kill the walking dead riot police was adorable.
