Dr. Eleanor O'Hara is Jackie's best friend. She shares the nurse's disdain for the screwed up hospital in which they each work.
Eleanor is British and she admits that she doesn't care all that much about her patients. She just enjoys cutting them up, but does have a sensitive side of course. It has a lot to do with the fact that her mother stole her boyfriend.
Jackie: I think Grace is starting to unravel a little bit. It's scaring the shit out of me.
Dr. O'Hara: If you need anything, and I mean anything, you'd better bloody tell me or I will kill you.
Dr. O'Hara: And then she'll be motherless. And then I'll have to take her.
Jackie: Oh God.
Jackie: Okay, a quick hypothetical. What would happen to a student nurse if she got busted flushing a patient's body part down the toilet?
Dr. O'Hara: That's so sweet, trying to take my mind off things with your own naughty doings. Was it a penis?
Jackie: No, an ear. Don't ask.
Dr. O'Hara: And you blamed the new girl? Well done. Well, she's a student. She won't get fired. Anyway, if you want me for backup, you can always say I ordered her to flush it.
