If the person in question is one who we think will skip out, we hold their party on the second to the last day. By this time, all the formalities have happened-talk with HR regarding last paycheck, payout on unused vacation time, meeting with the nurse manager, and everything but turning in your locker key.

If you just don't come in without calling first, it could be screwed as patient abandonment.
