1. Apply leave for work and stay with the person who is ill 2. Inform his closest people to take care 3. Admit him to hospital and inform his family members 4. Just ask him to take care of himself.

1. I would call 911 to come and help him as I am not a medical expert. 2. I would alert his family since I would not be able to admit him to a hospital, not being of his family. 3. I would make sure to visit him after work and take care of the needs he needed done such as bring his pets to my house so they were taken care of, calling whoever he wanted near him. Actually I have done these things before for family members and friends.

I call you as kind hearted person. Being humans, everyone should cultivate the habit of compassion and love towards all human beings. You narrated how you would handle the situation so well, I hope all mylotians read this and emulate the same. In the previous office, my colleague fell down while keyboarding. The management and other staff members had no idea what to do. I requested the Chairman of the company to lend his car, admitted the boy to hospital where he was treated him but could not cure his ailment. It was psychological. He was about to be fired from his job, and this was in his mind and causing problem. I requested the Chairman of the company to come and assure the boy that he will not loose the job and it was done. The boy was alright. I told him to look for a better job, eventually he gone one at Mumbai and he is now well off.

That was both perceptive and kind of you to do. Sometimes stress does make us ill. If he needed the job badly, then I can understand him feeling sick at the thought of losing it.

I will choose no. 3. I think thats the best I can do. I will do it to any person, close to me or not, that is if he is my neighbour or colleague at work. I generally choose friends with care. So only a few are very close to me. But everybody who needs my help will get it indifferently.

I would take them to the hospital while on the way or after we got there I would call their family so they know the condition the person is in. Then I would call work and tell them I cant make it due to a emergancy. I think family and friends are the most important people in your life and should come first at least when its family. most of the time work places understand emergancys and if they dont well there are other jobs out there.

It depends upon the relation level that I have with that person, and all the four points are raised well by you that depict the level of relationship or love/affection one developes for others

Instead of going into the level (s) of relationship, donot you feel the basic thing you can do is to inform his relative, or admit him to hospital.
