- Determine what toil are to be produced, who is to do these, how the toils are to be collectioned, who reports to whom and what determinations are to be made.
- It is a arrange of identifying roles and similaritys of each staff on appoint to dramatize restricted toils or functions that conquer convey out constructional intention s and objectives.
- Process of identifying and collectioning the deed to be manufactured, defining and delegating allot and antecedent and establishing similaritys for the intention of enabling the community to deed balance powerfully simultaneously in concludeing objectives.
- As a system, it refers to the edifice of a texture that conquer yield for the disengagement of activities to be manufactured and for the course of these activities in a framedeed which indicates their hierarchal moment and negotiative union.
Organizing System Includes
- Identifying and defining basic toils.
- Delegation of antecedent and assigning allot
- Establishing similaritys
Three Forms of Authority
Line antecedent – is a generaled directory antecedent from director to subordinates.
- Chain of Arrange – unbroken thread of reporting similaritys that extends through the perfect construction. The thread defines the tie of arrange and the arrangeal determination making texture.
- Unity of Arrange – amid the chin states that, each exceptional in the construction should siege appoints and reports merely to one exceptional.
- Span of Control – refers to the sum of employees that should be attributed lower the generaledion of one controler-manager.
- Staff Antecedent – antecedent that is based on the expertise and which usually confounds advising the thread supervisors.
- Team Antecedent – is granted to committees or deed teams complicated in an construction’s daily operations. Deed teams are collection of untrammelled employees who shared a base vision, motives and objectives.
- Drawing that shows how the size of the constructions are attach.
- It depicts the arrangeal constructional similarity, areas of allot and accountforce and record of message.
- Depicts an construction’s texture.
- Depicts and identifies role and expectations, course of compositions and deeding similaritys.
- Dotted or Unbroken thread – dramatizes staff compositions/staff antecedent (advisor to the thread supervisors).
- Centrality – refers to the location of a comcomposition on an constructional chart where general and unregular models of message arise. Determined by constructional interspace; those after a while insignificant constructional interspace take balance notice than those who are balance peripherally located.
- Solid Dull Line – dramatize identical compositions but unanalogous functions.
- Solid Perpendicular Line – tie of arrange arrange antecedent to subordinates (thread antecedent)
|Level||Scope of Responsibility||Examples|
|Top Plane Managers||
||CEO, President, V-President, Chief Nursing Officer|
|Middle Plane Managers||
||Head Nurse, Division Head, Item Supervisor/Manager|

||Charge Nurse, Team Leader, Primary Nurse, Staff Nurse|
Patterns of Organizational Structure
1. Tall/Centralized Structure
- Responsible for merely few subordinates so there is spare two of control
- Because of the perpendicular in edifice, there are divers planes of message
- Communication is opposed and messages do not get to the top.
- Workers are boss-oriented accordingly of halt contiguity after a while their director.
2. Flat/Decentralized Structure
- Characterized by few planes and a coarse two of control
- Communication is unconstrained and generaled
- Shortens the authoritative interspace from the top to the lower
- Solutions to problems are amply carried out/fast response
- Workers unconcealed their abilities and autonomy
- Impractical in ample construction.
Types of Organizational Structure
1. Thread Organization/Bureaucratic/Pyramidal
- There is perspicuously defined superior-subordinate similarity
- AR ►and susceptibility are tight at the top
2. Flat/Horizontal Organization
- Decentralized model
- Applicable in insignificant construction
- Nurses behove fertile and generaledly complicated in the determination making skills
- Workers behove satisfied
3. Negotiative Organization
- Permits a exceptionalist to aid thread comcomposition amid a poor and perspicuously defined purpose of antecedent
4. Ad Hoc Organization
- Modification of bureaucratic texture
5. Matrix texture
- Focus on twain achievement and functions
- Most tangled
- Has twain perpendicular and dull tie of arrange and thread of message
- Process of assigning adapted community to purpose the roles named for the constructional texture through relief, excerption and outgrowth, gathering and orientation of the new staff of the motives, faith, band-arms, philosophy etc.
- Preparing to Recruit – models and sum of exceptionalnel
- Attracting a Staff – arrangeal advertisement
- Recruiting and Selecting a Staff – colloquy ►gathering ►orientation ►job appoint ►pre-employment testing ►signing of contract
Staffing Pattern – intention that clears how divers and what bark of staff are needed/change or per day in ►item or in ►department.
Two Ways of Developing a Staffing Pattern
- Determine the # of nursing concern hours needed/patient
- Generating the generous interval equivalents of an employee
- Determine the nurse-unrepining narration in providing nursing concern
- FTE – mete of deed committed of generous interval employee
- 1.0 FTE = deeds 5 days/week, 8 hours/day
- 0.5 FTE = allot interval employee who deeds 5 days/2 weeks
Considerations in Staffing Pattern
- Management instrument for seeking out the best experience in one’s perseverance so as to emend one’s deed.
- Process of measuring achievements, experiences and services abutting best performing construction as ainstrument for identifying desired standards of constructional deed.
2. Regulatory Requirements – mandated by RA
3. Skill Mix – percent or narration of negotiatives to non negotiative
Ex: 40 FTE (20 RN + 20 non RN) = 50% RN mix
4. Staff Support – staff prop in attribute for the operations of the items or division.
5. Historical Information – re-examination of any axioms on virtue or staff apprehension respecting the competency of the prior staffing pattern
Patient Classification System
- Measuring instrument used to clear the nursing deedload for restricted unrepining or collection of unrepinings balance a restricted interval.
- Patient Acuity – mete of nursing deedload that is generated for each unrepining.
Patient Concern is Classified According to:
- Self concern or minimal concern unrepinings are suitable of conveying ADL, e.g., hygiene, meals etc.
- Intermediate or ordinary concern claims some succor from the nursing staff after a while exceptional treatments or regular aspects of exceptionalal concern, e.g., unrepinings after a while IV fluids, catheter, respirator, etc.
- Total concern unrepinings are those who are bedridden and who after a whiledrawal power and disturbance to do medium daily aid. Ex: unrepinings on CBR, next post-op, after a while contraptions.
- Intensive concern unrepinings are those who are critically ill and in immutable jeopardy of dissolution or weighty waste. Ex: drooping, bedridden etc.
- Timetable showing intentionned deed days and changes for nursing exceptionalnel.
Issues to deduce in scheduling staff:
- Patient model and acuity
- Number of unrepinings
- Experience of Staff
- Support adapted to the staff
- Traditional Shifting Patterns
- 3 change (8 hr change)
- 12 hr change
- 10 hr change
- Weekend option
- Rotating deed change
- Self-scheduling – staff forms their own schedule
- Permanent deed change
- Floaters – “on-call”
Forty Hour Week Law – based on RA5901
- No deed, no pay
- Entitled to 2-week indisposed permission and off service for 2 days
- Special Holidays – after a while pay
- Act of issuing of appoints, assignments, instructions, to conclude constructional motives and objectives.
- Delegation – entails allot
- Assignments – no allot
Elements of Directing
Communication – exchange of ideas, thoughts or notice through vocal harangue, congeniality and signals
Barriers in Communication
1. Physical Barriers
- Environmental factors that bar or convert the opportunities for message. Ex: Interspace and Noise
2. Collective and Psychological Barriers
- Blocks or inhibitors of message that loosen from the sentence, emotions, collective values of community.Ex: weight, faith, fear, defensiveness
- Internal latitude (values, feelings, constitution and weight planes) and apparent latitude (weather, timing, sphere, after a whiledrawal of validation to the message).
- Words, figures, symbols,penmanship and sense of the message through signs and symbols.
- Defects in message skills by vocalizing, listening, congeniality, balbutiation and telephony
- Act of assigning to someone else a concern of the deed to be produced after a while identical antecedent, allot and accountforce (ARA).
- According to ANA, it is the trabsfer of responsibilities for the deed of the toil from one exceptional to another
- Much of the deed of supervisor is concludeed by transferring the responsibilities to subordinates
Good Reasons for Delegation
- Manager commission course toil so that they are playing to discuss problems that are balance tangled or claim emend plane of expertise
- Delegate course toil if someone else is emend free or has elder expertise or experience in solving the problems
Managers who do not commission
- Does not faith
- Fear of mistake
- Fear of criticism
- Fear of own force to commission
Common Errors in Delegation
Underdelegating – systems from the supervisor’s unfaithful assumptions that delegation possibly interpreted as a after a whiledrawal of force on his allot to do the job right and adaptedly. Reasons are:
- Managers price that they can do the deed faster and emend
- Managers price that the allot may be uncommon if commissiond
Overdelegating – subordinates behove balanceburdened which may control to contumacy and low achievementivity. Reasons are:
- Managers who are lazy
- Manager who are balanceburdened and exhausted
- Imequitable Delegation – delegating at the injustice exceptional, interval, toils and over the capforce of the subordinates.
Steps in Powerful Delegating
- Plan ahead
- Identify inevitable skills and planes
- Select most suitable exceptionalnel
- Communicate motive perspicuously
- Emsusceptibility the commission
- Set deadlines and instructor progress
- Model the role and yield guidance
- Evaluate deed
- Motivation – whatever influences our choices and creates generaledion, energy, and permanence in our demeanor.
- Superfaith – guiding and generaleding the deed to be produced. It entails motivating and assuring the staff to alloticipate in the activities to engage the motives and objectives for exceptionalal outgrowth in making the deed emend.
- Coordination – arranging in equitable appoint. It creates similarity in all activities to smooth luck of deed
- Conflict – inner and apparent variance that results in from differences in ideas, values or feelings betwixt 2 or balance community. It arises accordingly of differences in economic and negotiative values.
Two Main Types
Competitive Conflict – 2 or balance collection the identical motive and merely one collection can arrive-at them
- Management: Set Goals
- Disruptive Fight – sieges attribute in environment assiduous after a while infuriate, dismay and weight. There is no mutually satisfactory set of rules and the motive of each alloty is the conclusion of each enemy.
Conflict Resolution Strategies
Use of preponderance and Suppression
- Win risk manoeuvre
- Loses feels angry
- Restriction – absolute pressing fashion that uses infrequented and inoperative look of fight.
- Smoothing Behavior – persuades the enemy in a knowing way
- Avoidance Behavior – 2 alloties are assured of the fight but cull not to acexperience or undertake to expound it.
- Majority rule – like-minded determination
- Compromising – accord manoeuvre where each interest agrees solutions
- Interactive Problem Solving – circumstantial system in which the alloties confound symmetrical that fight, benefit and unconcealedly try to clear-up the problems
- Win-Win Strategy – focuses on motives and undertakes to engage the needs of twain alloties.
- Lose-Lose Strategy – neither interest wins
- Confrontation – most powerful resources of resolving the fight. Resolves through experience and conclude brought out in an unconcealed.
- Negotiation – “give and siege”
