She is working there for a week when one evening a man in the recovery room is being closely monitored after surgery. The signs are not good. He recovers consciousness. The doctors inform him of the situation. They leave the recovery room.

The man calls the nurse over and asks for a pen and some paper. Thinking that he might die, and do so soon ,he informs her that he needs to write a brief letter to someone. She finds pen and paper and gives it to him. He writes his note and writes the address and asks the nurse to send it out for him. She agrees. As she is taking the pen and papers back from him the recovery room supervisor enters and observes her. The supervisor calls her over and inquires as to what she was doing. When the newly hired nurse reported that she had assisted the man in writing a letter and took it to mail it for him , the supervisor responded that :

"It is not your responsibility to do such things."

The new nurse responded that she was simply trying to help the man and had agreed to mail the letter. The supervisor replied with: "This is not a post office!"

The new nurse repeated that she was only attempting to help the man. That he might die shortly. The supervisor wrote up the new nurse for subordination. The new nurse was dismissed from the hospital as she was in her probationary period.
