21)

MANAGEMENT STYLE
89

In any institution does exist a different management style in order for the employees/staff and those people from the top management to plan, lead, organize and control. Vicente Gullas Memorial Hospital put this into a bureaucratic style of management.

There is the principle of fixed and official jurisdictional areas, which are generally ordered by rules, that is, by laws or administrative regulations. The organizational chart indicates that there is a defined order of hierarchy and this hierarchy is expressed to you from the day you start. This hierarchy also defines their authority and decision making capabilities within the hospital. Although the chief nurse, the supervisor and staff nurses of the said hospital has different designated functions but all decisions are made at the top of organization.

All rules and standard operating procedures are developed at the top of the hierarchy. Within this structure, it is each level of managements responsibilities to convey the decisions and rules to the level beneath. In our opinion, if this hospital wants to remain in the future they must examine how the management handles their people.

The best leadership style is that which motivates people to perform to their potential. Because people are self-interested, they will be turned on by what really excites them or most closely meets their needs. The simplest leadership style is that of problem solver, someone who knows what to do and who earns respect by being knowledgeable and decisive. Leaders who are confident without being arrogant can generally get by with most team members. But to improve your leadership style beyond this basic level, figure out how to adapt your approach to different situations and varying human needs.

In Vicente Gullas Memorial Hospital, the staff are not given freedom to express negative comments regarding the management, which is in contrast with the way good management or best leaders should treat the staff in order for them to meet their personal or professional growth. Bureaucratic management does not allow the freedom or risk that an institution needs to stay on top.

Employee Involvement (EI) is a means of allowing employees to become more involved in decision making and have more influence over their jobs. Marchington et al (1992) write of means of implementing schemes based around EI such as quality circles whereby a representative cross-section of employees are chosen to meet and resolve problems in conjunction with the democratic leader. This says a study by Pasmore and Friedlander (1982) is of great benefit to the organisation in that they found when the suggestions of the employees were taken up overall employee performance grew significantly.

We believe, that there is no particularly accepted style of management, but styles that lead to increased staff motivation, job satisfaction and productivity should be encouraged. While those that have the opposite effect should be discouraged.

ANALYSIS AND INTERPRETATION OF ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE

Based on the data that we gathered, the Vicente Gullas Memorial Hospital organizational structure is connected with a strong line of hierarchy. This hierarchy also represent a free flow process of information or ideas in a cycle process which results to a better decision making and more effective operation.

RECOMMENDATIONS

123

This study is concerned with the various aspects of operation management of Vicente Gullas Memorial Hospital in Banilad, Cebu City. Like any other hospital institutions, the hospital is also facing different problems that is quite opposite with the designated jobs of employees. In this hospital, the administrative and the executive level has the sole responsibility for the budget and decision making. The employees are free to suggest but they just have to wait whatever development or changes that are to be done.
124

The chief nurse must know the budget system as well, as stipulated in her function so that it can be easily evaluated if it is adequate enough for the personnel, equipments can be check from time to time and the physical set up of the hospital in order to deliver utmost care to the patients and to promote their sense of well being. The chief nurse must welcome and open to whatever negative comments from the staff so 125 that there will be room for improvement.

With the widespread use of computers, the management doesnt adapt to the new system that most of the hospitals are using now. Staff nurses cannot key in the data of the patient and other important matters in the hospital. They have to call the in charge person and check the papers kept in the cubicles in order to get the records of the patient.

Computers are widely used in the operation of medical services in other advanced countries. The hospital must have continuous development or adapt in the computer system. The application of computers will make the operation and the information system of the hospital more efficient. The database of computer network will provide the management with different kinds of information and promote proper and efficient functioning of the hospital and decision lag can be minimized.

In reality, there is only one charge nurse assigned in each level. To ensure the safety and to promote holistic quality nursing care there should be at least two charge nurses. The additional nurse could either act as an assistant to the original nurse. The service given to the patients can improve considerably especially during the busiest hours such as giving medications in the morning and during rounds of 128 doctors.

The management should involve the staff of the hospital in some decision making. There should be a two way communication for the reason that it will motivate the staffs at the same time their problems in the area can be resolve. Management style can be change from time to time depending on the situation or problem that exists.

Communication should flow through the hospital not only in taking care of a patient but also on how to deal with the problems in the hospital in a constructive manner. If these communication procedures are followed properly then the hospital will run a lot smoother, the patients and families will be a lot happier, the right people are making the right decisions, and the finances of the hospital will improve dramatically, and then the mission statement will fall in to place on its own.
