The hospital I am associated with has inept managers. There's a couple hundred hospitals in this corporation. Last year, their net profit was 100 million dollars. If the manager is running her/his units and turning a profit for the CEO of your hospital, do you really think they are concerned about YOUR comfort zone? NOTHING matters but PROFITS. Management is about the bottom line, "making a buck." Everything in the hospital is focused on making $$$. LISTEN at your next unit meeting. After all the whines are addressed, you will be given the latest profit-making guidelines, "from the top." Unit meetings are simply about morale and rapport, to make you feel like a participant. Yawn, from the manager. They HAVE to listen to your complaints, act interested, and then, the real purpose of the meeting is handed down. >> The guidelines for increasing profits. Supply charges, "be nice to visitors and patients", smile, etc.......ad infinitum. The goal is not to make us or our patients feel warm and fuzzy. The goal is profits for the institution.
