Renate saw to the associate’s car being returned home and then went back to the hospital so her colleague would not feel alone or scared and stayed with her until 11:30 pm. Renate returned the next day, brought a newspaper for the associate and spent the day with her. When the associate was discharged, Renate picked her up and took her home and stayed until associate felt comfortable and even offered to stay the night!
