Connie struggles to fight the system and uncovers the financial realities the hospital is facing. With the odds stacked against her, will Connie find another solution to save Ric and beat Hanssen at his own game?
Elizabeth is sure she’ll be on the redundancy list. More nervous than ever in Hanssen’s presence, she is worried about making a mistake. With Ric’s help, Elizabeth may be able to swing things her way, but will it be enough to secure Hanssen’s good opinion and her job?
