Based on the scientific management theory, what are some of the routines in health care that seem to be inefficient?
1. Procedure of blood transfusion-where a nurse and a nurse supervisor had to sign and approve for the procedure to be done. This delayed blood transfusion yet this is done during emergency cases.tis opposed the forth principle of his theory which states that Allocate the work between managers and workers so that the managers spend their time planning and training, allowing the workers to perform their tasks efficiently (Holloway & Galvin, 2016).
2. Under-staffing a floor that has potential high rate acuity -In the medical facility that usually work in, conscription is grounded on the census of the floor as opposed to the level of acuity which ultimately leads to a culmination of shift overtime, thus in my
view, this leads to nurse dissatisfaction as well as more medical errors.
What examples of participative decision making exist in your workplace? Provide your rationale.
Encouraging nurse to become members of shared Governance committee -this gives nurses ability and power to participate in decision making by giving their view to the committee regarding nursing practice (Holloway & Galvin, 2016). Some of the examples of these committees including nursing practice council. This committee oversees the practice of nurses hence nursing members are called upon to join to be part involved in decision making
