“Because I’m your supervisor.”
“Don’t think you can do whatever you want just because you’re the head nurse. I’ve been here longer than you, so why are you so arrogant? Let me tell you, if you dare to fine me, I’m not going to go easy on you.”
“Tingting, when Head Nurse Song Lin was here, she didn’t mark you as late because you would notify her beforehand even if you were stuck in traffic. I am not an unreasonable person; if you had told me in advance, I would be okay with it. But you showed no respect for me. As I said, if you respect me, I would respect you. If you don’t, then I’m not a pushover either. You can choose not to pay the fine, but I will appeal to the higher-ups to fire you. That’s all.”
“Huo Mian, you b*tch…” Wang Tingting was so mad that she cursed Huo Mian behind her back.
She always felt that Huo Mian was deliberately making things difficult for her.
But the truth was, Huo Mian was just being professional. The changes at South Side were already approved; she and the other head nurses already had a meeting.
They decided to target the nurses with bad behavior, one by one. Anyone who arrived late or left work early would be fined, and any mistakes at work would also be recorded.
Director Wu quickly approved the changes and decided to completely rectify the behaviors at South Side.
As a leader of the changes in the hospital, even though Huo Mian’s professional conduct was admirable, she was still criticized, hated, and isolated by a lot of people.
During lunch, no one wanted to sit with her. They all gossiped about her behind her back.
But Huo Mian was already used to this kind of treatment, and she never cared about what others said about her.
In the afternoon, Huo Mian went to check up on room 2 and discovered that Grandpa Liu had already packed his things.
“Grandpa, you’re being discharged this afternoon, right?”
“Yes, it’s already been two months. Time goes by so quickly!” Grandpa Liu said with an amicable smile.
“You are recovering very well, but you have to strictly control your diet. You must not drink any alcohol or eat any sugary foods.”
“I know, I know, you nag too much.”
“Haha, I nag for your own good.”
“I know. To be honest, I really like you. It’s a pity that you couldn’t become my granddaughter-in-law,” Grandpa Liu sighed.
“Here you go again, haha.” Huo Mian laughed as she covered her mouth.
“I heard that you have a boyfriend. Who is the lucky guy? Anyways, during this time, you took great care of me. Let’s keep in touch. When you are free, come to my house and we can play chess together.”
“Okay, don’t worry Grandpa, if you rest well and remain in good health, I will definitely come and visit you.”
“I will miss you, why don’t we play one more game? I’ll ask the car to wait for me.”
“Ah, I don’t think that’s a good idea.” Huo Mian seemed reluctant.
“Please, just one match? Don’t go easy on me this time, let’s both use all we’ve got.” After speaking, without giving Huo Mian a chance to finish her words, Grandpa Liu had already started setting up the chess pieces.
Huo Mian did not have the heart to reject his wishes, so she had no choice but to play with him.
In the end, Huo Mian won marginally. Grandpa Liu gave her a thumbs up and said, “You are such a smart kid, you set me up step by step and fooled me.”
“All’s fair in love and war,” Huo Mian said with a smile.
“I’m going to go now, remember to visit me!”
Grandpa Liu left the hospital under the escort of his family. To be honest, Huo Mian was sad to part with him.
Quite a few patients were admitted to the Orthopedics Department but since Huo Mian was now a head nurse, she did not spend much time taking care of the patients personally.
That afternoon, Wang Tinting suddenly came over and asked before the other nurses, “Head Nurse, I heard that you spent your working hours playing chess with a patient. Is this not considered as bad behavior? Shouldn’t you pay a fine? Don’t tell me you have special privileges here.”
