The director of the hospital has left and another administrative person is filling in.
This will bring tensions to a head because the hospital is run by a clique and he is one of this clique.
The person under the Director of the hospital, the Director of Nursing, does not exist. The position has been vacant for years. Nobody is running this ship- you probably aren't surprised to hear that. There are plenty of Assistant Directors of Nursing. All except one are from this same group, and every issue lately has been blamed on her.
It's a one-way street with this group. They are entitled, argumentative, suspicious. If the rumor is true, then the group will have officially taken over the hospital at every level. I am screwed. Perhaps others who are stronger than I am and not a member of the ruling group will become so embroiled that something gets done.
