Interview Overview—Management in Health Care

***** the purposes of this assignment, I interviewed an individual at a local hospital, to ask them, from a m*****nagement perspective, wh***** the challenges were in ***** present health care industry. Overall, when assured of confidentiality, the individual responded ***** me that health care presents so***** ***** the most difficult emotional and practical challenges, from a management *****, for any management-level administrator. One of the most difficult organizational communication challenges is negotiating ***** completely different perspectives of the ***** care pr*****essionals in the arena of care, such as the doctors and nurses, with individuals at the hospital primarily concerned ***** cutting costs and fulfilling admin*****tr*****ive, rather than care giving functions.

However, even doctors, nurses, ***** other practitioners primarily ***** with care can be at odds amongst *****selves. *****n today's cost-***** environment, nurses are *****ten called upon to per*****m the tasks of *****. This can cause anger on the part ***** the doctors, and also anger on the ***** of the nurses who believe that their diagnostic ***** treatment capabilities ***** not accorded enough respect. Also, physician's assistants are increasingly asked to fulfill the functions of *****, which *****s organizational conflict, as well ***** the fact that physician assistants are asked ***** perform, quite *****ten, the tasks of aids, despite *****ir job description. Mediation and an adequate counseling *****d human resource staff has provided some relief.

Additional challenges for ***** members relate to the ***** arcane referral system at ***** *****s, ***** are often misunderstood by both patients and caregivers. It is often tempting for individuals responsible for ***** financial management of the hospital to sacrifice care, to preserve budgetary needs and constraints, and it is often tempting ***** *****s and nurses to attempt to circumvent the hospital protocols of insurance referrals, in the interest of preserving ***** best care for *****, but putting the hospital at ***** and legal risk. Communication between ***** arms of the hospital is essential in meeting these *****. Frequent staff meetings to keep doctors and nurses abreast of the ********** ***** language of the insurance *****, and of ***** ***** and public relations state of the hospital is just as necessary ***** keeping o*****r budgetary and administrative members aware of the changes ***** challenges in the health care
