Why she breaks the rule of democracy?

Certain people are born with unique personalities who live on certain principles. Some follow specific rules and values. She is known to have her father’s personality. She believes in democracy and has an exceptionally liberal view. Her lone-wolf personality believes in democracy, but most of her colleagues are conservative. She has her own beliefs, which nobody could change. Maybe she is hot-headed and stubborn. Or she was a brat kid that was spoiled by everybody. She believes in democracy, but she never voted in her life. She encouraged everyone to vote during the presidential election and advised everybody to vote for Obama. Her cousin told her, “Why don’t you vote? One vote could make a difference”. Her answer was very straightforward, “I hate politics.”
She loves breaking policies. Recently, she was given the assignment to work with the hospital management to establish a new policy on the use of marijuana that has become legal in her state. Do you know how hard it is to deal with catholic management? Maybe this was why her boss had assigned this policy to her. Her mentor had made this decision, so she should fulfill this assignment. 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. Breaking those principles and policies could save someone’s life. She can prevent further damage. Unfortunately, her empathetic and sympathetic personality periodically forces her to break her own rules. Recently, she broke the rule of democracy. She broke the rule of democracy for two different reasons.
Everybody in her department works a 12-hour long shift. Most of them like working 12 hrs shifts. For others, it can be tiring. A 12-hour shift is the best option for medical providers. This long shift helps to provide the continuity of the patient’s care. This means that the doc starts the patient’s care and can make the final disposition instead of endorsing care to the next shift. It not only saves time but also increases the quality of care. In addition, they don’t have to go to work every day.
However, their schedules change frequently. It depends on the flow of patients in the ED and the company’s revenue. The Midwest director is her mentor and her 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 an 8 hrs shift.
The vote was completed last week via an anonymous online link. The result was declared today. The boss got only two votes. He lost the battle unless he used 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 does he know she voted for him. He talks very little. He ended his conversation with a small sentence, “My guts told me.”
Yes, she broke the rules of democracy and regulations by voting in this situation. She voted now. She doesn’t like working 8 hours a long shift, but she still voted against her decision. The reason was apparent. Her boss is not a lone wolf personality person. Secondly, she knows how hard it is to be alone in the middle of a crowd. Once, she was once in the same spot. It is not very easy to fight alone. Not everybody is brave enough to fight solo as she does. Her empathic behavior made her vote against her rules. She broke the rules for a person who is not only a top boss but also her mentor. How can she forget that her mentor did not let her professional life end? He came forward to protect her professional life. His mentorship is never over. She did not feel like leaving her mentor alone in the crowd, so she did not hesitate to break the rules and principles.
