I have a couple of ideas, but I'm not sure if they will work. Has your friend tried putting the ear drops in when she is sleepy and therefore more relaxed?
Also, if your friend is able to get a hold of the cat, he or she could try wrapping her in a towel with only her head sticking out, so she can't scratch or run away.
If nothing works at all, your friend might have to take her back to the vet and allow them to administer the ear drops.
ETA: Make sure to tell your friend not to make any sudden movements and to talk in a calming voice. Good luck.
