Case Study Scenario
The quarterly reports of expenditures for all the St. Agnes Health
System have been distributed. You are the Director Team for the
Orthopedic Clinic, and your area has seriously overspent its budget
for the third consecutive quarter. There are rumors circulating that
your job depends on reducing costs for supplies, the most expensive
item on the list. Other rumors suggest that all the clinic nurses fear
they will lose their jobs if the poor financial report for the clinic
causes the board to convert the clinic into an urgent care. Although
morale has been low, you have been adequately staffed and there seems
to be an increase in sick calls by everyone on the team.
