The scientific management theory states that humans are motivated by money, and there should be a separation between managers and workers. The expected result is a dramatic increase in productivity of the workers and profits for the organization. Some of the routines in the health care setting that are inefficient is nurse-to-patient ratio and staff retention. I feel the nurse-to-patient ratios are unsafe as it overloads the nurse and nursing assistants in carrying for high acuity patients with a higher prevalence of medical errors and oversight. When staffing is is done according to census instead of census it creates an unsafe environment for the patients and the staff. Without adequate staffing, patient care is inadequate and the patients suffer. Which in turns causes patient surveys to report negative feedback giving the hospital low numbers.Staff retention is important to ensure there is adequate staff to meet the demands of an aging population with numerous chronic illnesses. When facilities ignore the concerns of staff or do not provide attempt to implement change that benefits the staff and the patients, morale falls and staff leave. When nurses feel their safety and license are in jeopardy, they will seek out a better work environment they feel safe in.Â The facility I work for currently does annual retention surveys that allow its employees to voice any concerns and share what they feel the facility is doing well or could improve on. The nurses are asked various questions in regards to the leaders and managers they work directly under and whether their needs are being addressed. The facility offers committees that focus on allowing staff to have voice. Some include unit base council for each unit of the facility, committee for staffing concerns and safety committees that focus on sentinel events.
