Who knows how he’ll react. If he freaks like Maddie, then I’d be down to no one” (144). When Samantha decides that “[She] can’t tell Stuart about NPC”, she bases it off of the bad reaction from Maddie. This demonstrates how other people don’t try understand her disease, and instead decide to “freak”, as she describes Maddie’s reaction.

Navi, It is unfortunate that the consequence of Julie Thao’s decision to work overtime to help the hospital actually did the opposite by affecting her health and caused a fatal medical error. I completely agree with your 3 weapons against healthcare harm: leadership, safe practice, and technology. As Advanced Practice Nurses, I strongly believe we must to be accountable, responsible, and approachable in order to be an effective healthcare role model and leader.
