The Maggie Scene On Chicago Med That Went Too Far

Maggie Lockwood (Marlyne Barrett), the charge nurse of the ED on “Chicago Med,” is easily one of the most intelligent and competent professionals at the hospital, bar none. This makes her actions in Season 5, Episode 8 ("Too Close to the Sun") all the more baffling in a scene that went too far.
In the episode, her boyfriend Ben (Charles Malik Whitfield) is admitted to the ED and his diagnosis is grim. Ben must stay in medical quarantine or risk infecting others, and Maggie does the unthinkable when she forges Dr. Manning's signature to get Ben discharged prematurely.
Maggie realizes she made a mistake and takes Ben back to the hospital, but gets caught when Dr. Manning discovers the forged credentials. Not only was forging the signature a criminal act, but it violated the trust she had built with Dr. Manning.
