I also think that the staff should have gotten in trouble. They knew it wasn't right. But it does say that they were interviewed about it. My guess is that for them telling what the doctor was doing, they wouldn't get in trouble. So they pretty much was "ratting" on him. Regardless, they should have got in some kind of trouble too. I think it's funny how this doctor was illegally writing these pills, but when you go to the ER, they want to act like you're a junky. News flash, not everyone in Harlan is on drugs. They need to realize this and start acting like doctors instead of judges.
