|Occupation||Head of human resourses, Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital|
Ernest is very straightforward with House and Cuddy even though House treats the whole thing like a joke, although Cuddy is similarly straightforward. Ernest does insist that they both sign documents attesting to the conditions of the hospital so the hospital can't be sued later. He also reminds Cuddy that not only can she not show favoritism to House, she also can't be overly strict with him. This leads them to believe that House will require a new supervisor.
