Is Lucy’s post-it note a confession? Whether you will see it as a confession or a cry of innocent anguish depends on whether *you* have a heart and a brain. If you read it carefully, you will see that Lucy does not say that she killed those babies. She says that *they said* she killed those babies. Yes, she does say she is evil. She thinks she is clearly a bad nurse who apparently couldn’t save those babies, despite her (possibly too energetic, and certainly not well supervised) attempts. More seriously, she had had an affair with an older married man, a doctor, who later dumped her and betrayed her. She spoke out about doctors’ mistakes and about the catastrophic hygienic circumstances in which she and her colleagues had to work. For two years, doctors had tried to have her taken off that ward, because she pissed them off. Her colleague nurses loved her for her forthrightness and lovely character. She is so sorry for the suffering she caused her parents and step-brothers. She is considering suicide. She has PTSD.
