Financial incentives for meeting budgets?
- 0Mar 3, '05 by big sweet lifeI am curious if anyone has ever been in a nursing mangement position where bonuses or "perks" are recieved for meeting or coming in under budget for various operating costs of a unit? If not, have you ever heard of this type of incentive at other facilities?
ex: equipment purchases, staffing budgets, materials purchases, etc.

Those that developed processes to assure the cost-effectiveness of department operations were given additional percentages based on specific criteria. It was wonderful!!
Although the bonuses amounted to a whole pile of money, it still worked in our budget and helped the managers learn the importance of being frugal with the organization's dollars.

What can you financially change?? Staff--FTEs, par levels, types/cost of equipment?
I understand pt satisfaction, personal goals, employee satisfaction, hosptial goals, etc
