Is It really management?

Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country?

If you have been in nursing or even healthcare for any amount of time, then chances are that you have heard this before, It's management”!”

But, is it always management though? Please do not misunderstand the idea behind this. It is not to make a case for management because surely, there are managements that should be blown out of existence…like yesterday.

The idea behind this is to self-reflect- is it always management?

-Is it management when one nurse decides to gossip about another instead of uplifting that person?

-Is it management when you decide to take 20 normal saline syringes or alcohol pads for one single lumen q6h flush?

- Is it management when you call in to get back at the charge nurse or person that irritated you the shift before?

-Is it management when you label that patient or that patient's family as difficult” loony” or some other name, when all they wanted to do was be an advocate for their loved one?

- Is it management when you act less than stellar when you think no one is watching you?

And many other things…so just before you decide to use that very popular refrain, It's management”, stop and think real hard, Is it REALLY management”?

To tie it all in with what John F. Kennedy's quote Ask not what your Country can do for you, ask what you can do for your Country”

How have you in your own way done one thing a shift for the betterment of all?

TASK: How can you today, perform one simple gesture for someone at your work place, that might have a ripple effect!

Speaking as a manager who works for a wonderful company, this starts with upper management and then it's my job to ripple it further outward.

Management sets the tone, but team members could show some accountability and resourcefulness.

In your real life scenario, is management rippling it out?

I have strong feelings about morale within an organization, our company is very culture focused. I have expectations of my staff as I did with my co workers but it comes through me. I will own it and live it before I expect anyone else.
