Allow me to introduce Nurse Briggs. She will remain until the matter is settled.” Dr. Charles pulls out a handkerchief and wipes his face.
What kind of nurse will she be? She doesn’t know the patient. I don’t either, but at least I’m part of the community. If anyone should have charge of Mr. Hastie, it should be me. It’s my duty, however inconvenient, not some outsider’s.
“Dr. Charles, I thought Mr. Steele summoned me to nurse Mr. Hastie.”
“Miss Pigot, I want you to relieve Nurse Briggs during the night. A tired nurse is of little use, after all.”
You could have given me the day shift and had an ayah sit with Mr. Hastie at night. Perhaps Mr. Steele wants the community to think he spares no expense. Only qualified nurses for Mr. Hastie. Never mind, this way Mr. Hastie will see a familiar face if he wakes during the night.
