Chapter 139: Punishment
Translator: Noodletown Translated Editor: Noodletown Translated
Director Wu looked at Huo Mian and slowly opened his mouth, “Who told you I was going to fire you?”
Huo Mian froze for a second; she thought she was going to be fired for what she did last night.
“I heard about what happened last night and did some investigations. You did violate hospital policy. But, I have to admit, you are extremely skilled and brave,” Director Wu said as he stared at Huo Mian sternly.
Huo Main looked down. She knew last night that her actions would not be tolerated by the hospital. The hospital would never let her do anything like this.
“The hospital will not tolerate your actions, but personally, I respect you. Therefore, on behalf of myself, I would like to thank you for saving two lives last night.” Then, Director Wu stood up and saluted Huo Mian.
Huo Mian was stunned… What was happening?
“Director…” Huo Mian hesitated.
“Don’t get happy too fast, let me finish. I said that personally, I respect you. But the hospital will not allow for such actions – rules make this place run smoothly. You’re a nurse, an intern nurse at that. You performed surgery on a patient without authorization from a superior, you also used an OR and surgical equipment without approval. This is a serious offense, so after a discussion with the board members, we’ve come to a decision…”
Huo Mian began to feel anxious at the director’s words…
“We decided to temporarily transfer you out of the OB/GYN department and into the hospital laboratory.”
Huo Mian sighed in relief upon hearing this. The director was only transferring her to another department.
However, truth be told, she was going to miss the OB/GYN department.
“Do you accept this punishment?
“I do, but I have a request, Director Wu.”
“Could you not fire Huang Yue? She was just assisting me, she didn’t do anything she wasn’t supposed to.” Huo Mian didn’t forget about her.
“The nurse who assisted you will also be transferred to the laboratory. You will be transferred together, or else the OB/GYN department’s reputation might suffer. If the patient’s family decides to come back and create a scene, we need to be able to provide a decent explanation.”
“That’s good, I feel better now.” Huo Mian felt much better after she heard that Huang Yue and herself were being transferred to the laboratory together.
“Huo Mian, your head nurse profusely recommended you to me. I’ve seen your resume and heard that you are extremely smart. You can learn anything easily if you put your mind to it, can learn things that others would take ten years to learn, and perform outstandingly at any task. The incident that happened last night really opened my eyes to your potential. Therefore, if the hospital offers you a chance to study abroad, would you go?”
Gratified, Huo Mian smiled at the director’s kind offer.
“It’s okay, Director Wu. I’m not that young anymore, nor am I as driven as I used to be. I don’t want to learn anything; I’m happy working at our hospital. I’m extremely grateful that you didn’t fire me because of what happened last night.”
“I heard that you played multiple roles last night – you were the main surgeon as well as the anesthesiologist. The doctors from your department were all surprised when they saw how well the patient’s recovering. It was a breech baby, so the surgery was difficult. Even an attending doctor would have to think twice before operating, let alone a newbie like you. You are extremely talented, have you had hands-on experience in the past?”
Huo Mian shook her head, “No, I haven’t. Last night was the first practical application of my skills.”
“Therefore, I’ve got to say, you are a medical genius. It’s a shame for you to just be a nurse. It’s a waste of your talent,” Director Huo looked at Huo Mian and said earnestly.
