So why do they need to find another one when they have someone in house, who knows the hospital and staff and apparently can fill the boots? Odd that Jean O'Callaghan didn't have to give more notice, when my wife, a nurse who is leaving had to give 3 months notice. So does that say anything about which job is more important?
