Jack Palmer is a minor character created by Sam. He appeared in the episode "The Tale of the Night Shift". 


Jack Palmer is the hospital Administrator at the United Hospital. He is strict, serious and possibly short-tempered. It is shown that he works the night shift, it is unknown how often he works the daytime shift. He is in charge of the entire hospital. He oversees and approves all of the decisions and he is in charge of all the doctors, nurses, volunteers and janitors.

During the events of the story, he was shown to be furious. He madly lectured the teenage custodian Felix. He found out that he (without permission) signed for a crate in receiving. Felix was falsely informed that it contained a water pump. Then he told him that the water pump had gone missing. So if Felix didn't find it, he would terminate him. It is unclear if he was short-tempered, or if he was just fed up with Felix's slack and poor performance.

It turned out that the crate contained a vampire sleeping inside a coffin. Soon the vampire broke out the crate and clandestinely lurked around the hospital, shapeshifting into one different person to another. the vampire soon took on the form of a red haired teenage girl named Margot. As Margot the vampire signed up and became a new night shift volunteer nurse.

He had no idea, until it was too late that this innocent sweet girl was actually an evil shapeshifting vampire. He eventually encountered the vampire. Then it bit him and drank his blood. Then he was placed under a trance becoming a mindless wandering zombie. Eventually while wandering around he encountered volunteer nurse Amanda and her friend Colin (who was in for tonsillitis). They were both upset and devastated to have just seen Felix appearing to be dead in the morgue. So they asked him what happened to him. He just sinisterly smiled at them and said that Felix was fine. Then he offered to take them to go and see him. The truth was Felix was recently bitten by the vampire. And due to a high amount of blood draining, he was already changing into a vampire!

Sensing something was wrong when he told them Felix was fine, they fearfully ran away from him. Since he may very well have lead them directly to the vampire.

Soon, Nurse Hantin and Nurse Laurette were both bitten and victimized as well. Then gradually the entire hospital who been preyed upon and victimized by the vampire. Eventually there was only three people left in the entire hospital capable of defeating the vampire. Amanda and Colin had out maneuvered the vampire and they both managed to have not get bitten. Felix's will was strong, so he was able to fight off the vampiric urges. Then Amanda distracted the vampire luring him away. Then Colin and Felix placed the vampire's coffin into the basement incinerator. When the coffin burned, the vampire instantaneously went up in flames and burned to death.

Afterwards, he and everyone else were all healed and changed back to normal with no memory of what had happened. He was last seen storming into the main floor, demanding Felix to get back to work scrubbing the floor, or he would fire him.
