Why she breaks the rule of democracy?

Certain people are born with unique personalities who live on certain principles. They follow specific rules and values. She is known to develop her father’s personality. She believes in a democracy and has an exceptionally liberal view. Even, she has a lone -wolf personality. She is democratic, but most of her colleagues are conservative. But she has her own belief which nobody could change it. Maybe she is hot-headed and stubborn. Or she was a brat kid that was spoiled by everybody. She believes in a democracy, but she never voted in her life. She encouraged everyone to vote during the presidential election and advised everybody to vote Obama. Her cousin told her, “why you don’t vote. One vote could make a difference”. Her answer was very straight forward, “I hate politics.”
She loves breaking the policies. Recently, she had given the assignment to work with the hospital management to establishing a new policy because the use of marijuana has become legal in her state. Do you know how hard to deal with the catholic management? Maybe this was the reason that her boss had assigned this policy to her. Her old mentor boss had nothing else for her. All her colleagues had sent emails to her, making a joke of it, “The policy breaker is the policymaker now.” Yes, she loves to break the policies which interfere with the patients’ care.
She breaks her principles only when she knows it is crucial. She can save somebody. She can prevent further damage. She is very empathetic and sympathetic, which periodically forces her to break own rules. Recently, she had broken a rule of democracy. She has broken her rule of democracy for two different reasons.
Everybody in her department works 12 hours long shift. Most of them like working 12 hrs shift. For others, it could be tiring, but for the emergency room providers, 12 hours shift is the best option. This long shift helps to provide the continuity of the patient’s care. It means that the doc starts the patient’s care and able to make the final disposition instead of endorsing care to the next shift. It saves time and increases the quality of care. We don’t have to go to work every day.
However, our schedules change frequently. It depends on the flow of patients in the ED and the revenue of the company. The director of midwest is my mentor and also my current boss, who has decided to reduce the shift hours from 12 to 8 hrs. However, nobody was willing to do it. Everybody had given their own opinion. The issue was getting more complicated, so the boss decided to do an anonymous survey. She was also opposed to working 8 hrs shift.
The voting was done last week via an anonymous online link. The result was declared today. The boss got only two votes. so, he lost the battle unless he uses his executive power to force the new policy. She received an email from her boss in which he appreciated voting for him. She asked her boss, “The voting system was anonymous; how he knows that she voted him. He talks very little. He ended his conversation with a small sentence, My guts told me”.
Yes, she broke the rule of her democracy and regulations. She voted which she never voted in her life before. She doesn’t like working 8 hours a long shift, but she still voted against her own decision. The reason was apparent. Her boss is not a lone wolf personality person. Secondly, she knows how hard it is to be being alone in the middle of the crowd. She was once there at the same spot. It is not very easy, and everybody is not brave enough to fight solo as she does. Her empathic behavior made voting against her rules. She broke the rules for a person who is not only a top boss but also her mentor. How she can forget that her mentor did not let her professional life ended. He came forward to protect her professional life. His mentorship is never over. She did not feel leaving her mentor alone in the crowd, so she did not hesitate to break the rules and principles.
