For sake of privacy, let me present this as a hypothetical situation... Let's say we have Jane. Jane works for an orthodontist. Today, Jane encountered a moral frustration. One of Jane's patients, we'll call her Judy, came in for some help. Now, Judy has an outstanding balance on her account with the orthodontist, and therefore, in order to keep her job, Jane cannot progress Judy's treatment or remove her braces until Judy pays her account, which is thousands of dollars negative. The problem: Judy is 5 months pregnant, and her gums are very swollen and tender, which is being further aggravated by the braces. She is very fearful that her oral health could get worse by leaving the braces on, but the orthodontist is unmoving in the fact that the braces will not be removed until the balance is paid, regardless of Judy's health. Now, Jane is trying to make herself feel less guilty for not being able to help, while also trying to ignore her boss's obvious reference to her in a loud discussion with another employee on how "some people just care too much", and so she tries to justify the situation by condemning Judy's decisions. "She shouldn't have gotten started in braces if she couldn't pay....she shouldn't have a baby if she can't afford to take care of herself." This is when Judy tells Jane the backstory to her sad situation: Judy's father was originally the one paying for her braces...until he split town, leaving Judy on her own, soon to be accountable for the balance on her 18th birthday. A year passed with her mouthful of metal, when the unexpected happened: Judy was raped. And now, pregnant, with hormonally-induced gum disease, and no money, Judy was sitting in Jane's treatment chair, a sad and unhopeful plea in her eyes...and Jane felt there was nothing else she could do except sneak some hygiene tools to Judy before she left the office in tears... If you were Jane, what would you have done?
