“Mrs. Bancroft, what right have you to interfere? Do you know what you’ve done?”
“Kept a patient from walking out. Mr. Jackson was furious when he learned about his surgery. His son had no legal right to give a phone consent or any other kind.”
He leaned forward. “Just a minute, young lady. What are you accusing me of doing?”
“Not listening to your patient.”
“You’ll be sorry. When I report this, you will lose your job. Do you like owning a house?”
Laura clenched her hands. The house was her dad’s. “Don’t threaten me. You could have spent time with Mr. Jackson explaining the reason for the surgery and showing him the results of the tests.”
“That old man insisted on no surgery.” He grasped her arms. “You’ve condemned him to an awful death.”
Laura froze. Moore’s pale eyes glittered. The odor of alcohol reached her. He was drunk. She wanted to run. Had Doug managed to reach the supervisor?
“You…you…,” he sputtered. “You’re doing this for revenge. You still blame me for your mother’s death.”
“We could have sued you but my dad wouldn’t.” Though Laura knew she should stop, she couldn’t. “How many more patients.” She saw his raised fist headed for her face.
“I wouldn’t do that, doctor.”
Laura’s eyes widened. She knew that voice. What was he doing here?
Dr. Moore whirled. “Do I know you?”
“We haven’t met yet. I’ve just joined the staff. Rich Slater’s partner.”
“You had no right to interfere.”
Laura didn’t wait to hear more. She hurried to the lounge. Why was Alex here?
