Doctor Xu entered to see a man and woman sitting on the sofa in the ward’s living room.
The woman was dressed in tight pants, black leather boots, and a short coat. She had a sharp and clean look that was unlike the typical rich young ladies. Instead, she looked a little more like a hired brawler or assassin.
However, she was extremely beautiful.
On her cool-looking face, which was more beautiful than celebrities, she had exquisite features. Her face was fair, and her peach blossom eyes seemed to carry a shadow of a smile as she looked at them.
Also, the man seated next to her had a very strong disposition. He had tough and firm features, and his aura was akin to a militant that exuded a strong killing intent. He also seemed decisive and had no problems employing tough measures.
When he sat there, his aura didn’t shadow the woman. However, when one noticed him, they’d be in shock.
Doctor Xu was so scared that he immediately retracted his gaze. He then looked at Young Miss Shen and was just about to smile and say something, but a series of sharp beeps suddenly rang out from the ward!
Doctor Xu was given a fright. Before he could react to things, the woman in front of him suddenly stood up and dashed into the ward. She looked more like a professional doctor compared to him.
Doctor Xu was stunned.
At this moment, Rong Rong and Mother Rong also walked in.
The two of them saw a glimpse of Shen Ruojing’s figure dashing into the ward but didn’t manage to get a clear view of her. Both of them then turned to Doctor Xu and asked, “What happened?”
Doctor Xu wore a solemn expression. “Miss Shen’s friend went into shock and requires immediate medical attention!”
After saying that, he rolled up his sleeves and said to the two of them, “Auntie, Little Rong, the two of you should go back first. I need to attend to the patient. It’s not suitable for the two of you to stay here!”
After saying this, Doctor Xu also entered the ward.
Mother Rong was stunned. She tried to walk toward the ward, but when the nurses and doctors who were on duty heard the pings from the medical device, all of them rushed in as well.
A doctor pushed her away and entered the ward.
After that, the nurses started to chase them away. “Please go out first. We need to provide emergency rescue. Unrelated people should leave immediately!”
Mother Rong and Rong Rong were pushed out of the ward, and they stood outside awkwardly.
Rong Rong tugged Mother Rong’s sleeve. “Mother, let’s leave first. Miss Shen’s friend went into shock. It’s inappropriate for us to try and get close to her now.”
Mother Rong understood this too. If they were to visit earlier when the patient’s condition was stable, it’d be polite. But if they were to continue to stay here given the current situation, it’d be too rude of them.
This was especially so since she was an elder. It’d put her in an embarrassing situation.
She frowned and suddenly handed the thermal container to Rong Rong. “You stay here and wait for Doctor Xu. Later on, you can use the pretext of bringing him soup to get to know Miss Shen.”
Rong Rong clenched her hands and lowered her head. “This isn’t good…”
“What’s bad about it? Miss Shen was just acknowledged back into the family and definitely doesn’t understand the situation in the capital. If you can become her first friend, you’ll definitely be able to get a lot of help from her in the future! You’re only getting this great opportunity because your younger sister isn’t here! You must hang onto this chance!”
After Mother Rong said that, she turned to leave. “I’ll be heading back first. You must remember to get Miss Shen’s contact and add her on WeChat, do you understand?”
Hearing this, Rong Rong clenched her fists and let out a silent sigh. Under Mother Rong’s compelling gaze, she could only sit down on a chair in the long corridor outside the ward, waiting quietly.
Only then did Mother Rong leave.
In the ward.
The moment Doctor Xu entered, he saw Miss Shen standing there in a daze.
Her reaction was very normal.
He quickly took a step forward and started checking the devices on Song Chen. All the data showed that his heart had stopped beating!
Moreover, his blood oxygen saturation was plunging rapidly, and his blood pressure was at zero. His breathing had stopped as well.
Doctor Xu quickly walked over to Shen Ruojing’s side. He then picked up the defibrillator and said, “Miss Shen, please make way. We need to perform an emergency rescue!”
Shen Ruojing docilely moved to the corner of the room, making way for the medical staff.
At this moment, the other doctors and nurses entered in succession.
Doctor Xu picked up the two defibrillators and said calmly, “150J.”
However, Song Chen showed no reaction.
Doctor Xu then said, “200J.”
Song Chen continued to show no reaction.
“CPR, perform artificial respiration!”
Doctor Xu jumped onto the bed and took turns performing CPR on Song Chen with a nurse. He put in a lot of effort.
Shen Ruojing stood at the side, narrowing her eyes.
Chu Cichen asked softly, “What happened? Wasn’t the operation a success? Why did this suddenly happen? Is there no way to save him?”
Shen Ruojing’s expression tensed.
The operation was a success.
By right, Song Chen was no longer in a critical condition and this shouldn’t have happened…
This was why she didn’t make any rescue attempt at the first instant. After all, the doctors and nurses knew the basic procedures.
She was observing the entire ward seriously. Suddenly, she saw a small injection bottle in the trash bin!
She walked over quickly and picked up the bottle carefully… The label on the bottle was normal medicine. However, Shen Ruojing opened the cap and studied the remnant product left inside…
A short moment later, her pupils constricted and she said softly, “This is potassium chloride!”
Chu Cichen asked in a deep voice, “Is it poisonous?”
“Mmm. Injecting it directly will cause a cardiac arrest.”
This was why Song Chen showed no reaction at all even though Doctor Xu and his team had spent so much time on the rescue efforts.
Shen Ruojing stared at the medicine bottle.
It seemed that what Song Chen had said was true.
If he were to look for her, he’d be harmed.
The gunshot accident was done by Dugu Xiao, so Shen Ruojing hadn’t taken Song Chen’s words to heart. But now, she believed them.
The mastermind definitely came prepared to be able to poison Song Chen in front of her eyes.
Just as Shen Ruojing’s mind was wandering, Chu Cichen asked, “Can he still be saved?”
The person in bed had his appearance from six years ago. Looking at his pale complexion, Chu Cichen felt an awkward feeling from the bottom of his heart.
If it wasn’t because she had discovered the potassium chloride and that the rescue efforts were just CPR and the defibrillators, it’d be useless. On the contrary, it would cause them to miss the golden hour for rescuing Song Chen.
But since she had found out the reason, then what followed would be easy.
Shen Ruojing took a step forward and ordered a nurse, “Bring glucose insulin! Hurry!”
Hearing this command, the nurse was stunned and her expression immediately changed drastically. “Who are you? Don’t make a fuss here! Hurry up and get out!”
When Doctor Xu who was performing CPR heard this, he looked at Shen Ruojing politely. “Miss Shen, is the patient diabetic? Even if that were the case, it’d be useless even if we were to inject this. We should first bring back the patient’s heartbeats before proceeding with the next step of treatment.”
Shen Ruojing frowned. Potassium chloride was odorless and colorless, so there was no way for her to explain that the remnant medicine in the bottle was potassium chloride.
However, if they waited for the test result to come out, it’d be too late to save Song Chen.
She could only say firmly, “Go get it! Right now!”
The nurse immediately flew into a rage and was about to chase Shen Ruojing out. However, Doctor Xu didn’t dare to go against the orders of the Shen Family’s young miss, and he said to the nurse, “Go get it! Listen to Miss Shen!”
When he spoke, his tone emphasized the words ‘Miss Shen’, and this allowed the nurse to instantly understand who this lady was.
The hospital was opened by the Shen Family…
Hence, the nurse didn’t dare to go against Doctor Xu’s words and could only say indignantly, “Alright! I’ll go!”
However, before she stepped out of the ward, she still glared at Shen Ruojing unhappily. “This is a matter of life and death, but you still give reckless orders, using your identity to back you up! You really can’t judge the importance of the situation! If you were to delay the optimal saving period of your friend, I want to see how you answer for it!”
