Dom is marching around Keller ward like a bear with a sore head, and he has little patience for Mim, who’s been admitted with a bout of severe diarrhoea. Nurse Lofty is on hand to help – but Dom loses his temper with him when he’s late with Mim’s fluids.
Concerned by his colleague’s erratic behaviour, Lofty talks to their boss Sacha, who lets slip about the ‘rough time’ Dom had with lover Isaac. Dom’s furious with Sacha for blabbing about his personal life and ends up clashing with him on the ward!
Lofty finds an angry Dom in the staff locker room and tries to find out what’s troubling him. Dom doesn’t want Lofty’s help, though, and storms out. That’s when Lofty notices Dom’s workbag – and spots a bottle of steroid pills that’s fallen out.
Lofty returns the pills to Dom, warning him of the health implications of taking them. Dom insists he’s not addicted, but when Lofty catches Dom popping more pills, will he be able to help him personally and professionally?
