Hospital Rules?

June 11, 2018 by Comments


Maggie, Hospital receptionist

Julie, patient’s friend


Front desk of a hospital


Julie:  What do you mean I can’t go see her?

Maggie:  I’m sorry but it’s hospital rules.

Julie:  It’s hospital rules that I can’t go see a dear friend of mine?

Maggie:  Only family allowed.

Julie:  But I love her, she’s my best friend, she is my family.  

Maggie:  Sorry, but you’re not listed as next of kin.

Julie:  Do you see her “loving family” here?  Do you see any of her “next of kin” here to support her?

Maggie:  Look, I’m really sorry.

Julie:  Isn’t love enough?

Maggie: In a perfect world, it sure as hell would be. But we’re in a hospital, with hospital rules.

Julie:  So rules trump love?


Maggie: As much as it pains me to say so, rules trump love.

Julie:  Can you do me a favor then?  Can you tell her I was here and that I love her?

Maggie:  I can do better than that.  
Maggie takes out her cell phone.

Maggie:  Record a message and I will show her how much you love her.

Julie (smiling):  Thank you. Here’s to proving that love trumps rules.
