Or let's take Dr. Delaney's case. I get how it's right for those in charge to take responsibility for those they're in charge of, but according to the Captain of the Ship Doctrine as Hooten pointed out it's ultimately HH's fault that this happened. So why wasn't he fired as well?
I think that's the 'Ioan is a guest star so he takes the fall' rule. ;p But, seriously, yeah, you can't have Hooten say it's ultimately his fault, then fire Delaney. And I really don't know of a hospital that would - or could - just up and fire someone for a mistake like that. While Delaney had some responsibility, and it was to his credit he took some responsibility, we know it's one of the nurses who would have been fired.
