Question 1 

 

You are the manager of a medical-surgical unit in a not-for-profit, acute care hospital that is part of a nine-hospital healthcare system. During the budget preparation process for the upcoming fiscal year, the healthcare system leadership mandated 5% cost reductions from the previous fiscal year budget. Labor costs must be evaluated thoroughly for potential cost savings. You strongly feel eliminating nursing positions is not appropriate in this budget reduction initiative.  Discuss at least 3 factors you can use to justify the current nurse staffing as the most appropriate to ensure cost effective, high-quality care for patients?  List several ways to meet the budget reduction mandate without cutting nursing staff? Discuss at least 3 characteristics an emotional intelligent leader would use in dealing with this scenario.
