He has managers in each department which he supervises and who work with him to address the requirements of the different internal and external stakeholders of the hospital. Dr. DoRight discovers that some of the patients in the hospital have been dying as a consequence of a variety of illegal methods by doctors and nurses, and negligent supervision and oversight on their part.

After two years, there have been no answers from the investigation and some patients are still passing away due to the negligent actions. He as well answers to a board of trustees and interfaces with many community organizations and corporations who have different reasons for doing business with the hospital.
