Mandy, a nurse at the Hospice, discusses how she originally wanted to practice as a "very technical" nurse, by using high tech procedures to keep people alive. Now, she has realized that she prefers to confront patients without electronics and get to know them as real people. She then confronts how unpredictable treatments are, and wonders how patients under these treatments live.
