Doris is Maria's roommate.
When the Barnes family came to visit Maria, their old housekeeper, Ben accidentally woke Doris, her roommate. She asked him to rub her feet. He didn't want to, so he said an orderly would be by soon. She asked him again and because his brother had just teased him for always saying yes to people, Ben said no, but said he would call an orderly for her. He hit what he thought was the call button, but was actually a code button. An alarm sounded and an orderly came in with a crash cart. Ben assured them that Doris was fine and explained what happened.
