Let veteran medical administrator Dr David Rankin be your guide through another minefield, as he challenges a senior hospital medical administrator with a staffing situation that threatens to impact patient safety.

Explore the ethical dilemmas surrounding aging medical professionals, the duty of care to patients and colleagues, and the delicate balance of maintaining respect while addressing performance concerns. And learn about the strategies for gracefully transitioning senior staff members, while ensuring patient safety.
