Prompt 5: Evaluating the workflow of any organization is a complex task that involves analyzing the jobs of individuals to ensure that the workflow (either current or projected) produces the desired outputs for the organization, supporting the organizational mission and vision. As an HR consultant, you have been asked to perform a job analysis for a local hospital. It is a complex job, and you need some tools to help with the analysis. Select 2 tools that you believe would be helpful and describe why they would be useful for your consulting project.

Prompt 6: Hospital executives often come under scrutiny for the salaries and benefits they receive. According to a recent IRS survey related to chief executive officer salaries, of more than 500 hospitals, the national average income was $490,000. In addition, the salaries of the hospital and other health industry executives have come under scrutiny in Congress. For-profit hospitals, which make up about 30% of hospitals, do not have to publicly disclose how much the executives at each facility earn, but nonprofit hospitals must provide that information on the IRS form 990, which are public documents. By law, hospitals are required to show that such compensation is “reasonable” when compared to pay at other similar institutions. If you were a board member of a healthcare organization, what other determinants besides the salary of other chief executives would you want information on before you determined the compensation of the chief executive of the health care organization whose board you are on? In addition, how do the responsibilities of chief executives compare to the responsibilities of other healthcare employees? Do these responsibilities warrant a substantially higher salary? Defend your answer

Prompt 7: The Surgical Care Improvement Project (SCIP) is a national quality partnership of organizations interested in improving surgical care by significantly reducing surgical complications. Partners in SCIP believe that a meaningful reduction in surgical complications depends on surgeons, anesthesiologists, perioperative nurses, pharmacists, infection control professionals, and hospital executives working together to intensify their commitment to making surgical care improvement a priority. If you were the administrator in charge of reducing errors related to surgery, what strategies would you implement that enable the different professionals (i.e., surgeons, anesthesiologists, preoperative nurses, pharmacists, infection control professionals, and hospital executives) to receive training? What kind of training and development activities would you implement to change the culture of the hospital in regard to reducing patient care errors? What other HRM activities could be impacted by the training and collaboration?
