Your Critique (50%) Case Studies Introduction This paper is a reflection of my experience working at a hospital. I worked under human resource management at various levels; consequently, I had interdepartmental supervisors. My goal was to develop practical understanding of the hospital management system via my day-to day responsibilities. I was able to acquire vast practical knowledge in this sector. This paper contains organizational overview and characteristics of situations where problems arise. I will examine both internal and external factors pertaining to managing a hospital. Based on my observations and interactions with various stakeholders, the report provides recommendations for organizational improvement. Organization Background Richard Hallem founded the hospital in 1998 as a private health organization. Hallem Hospital provides both inpatient and outpatient services. It started by offering only outpatient services and from January, 2002, the hospital commenced its inpatient services with paid admissions of sixty beds. In February, a maternity ward of forty-eight beds was open for the baby business. The delivery services in the two wards prompted the opening of an operating theatre, which has three high-tech operating beds. The availability of Technical Human Resource, theatres and the wards has remarkably reduced hospital referral cases. In the month of July, twenty-eight beds were added and two rooms availed for Male and Female medical wards, both currently operational, and provides both curative and preventative healthcare (Cohen, 2009). Characteristics and Situation I worked at various levels within the hospital; however, my main concentration was at the human resource management office. As part of my orientation, I worked in several departments interacting with different employees in the organization. I spent some time in the records department, procurement office, biotechnology department, and the hospital registry but mainly I was in human resources, where I acted as a low-level manager who performed duties as directed by a supervisor. Human resources in Hallem are composed of clinical and non-clinical staff responsible for public and individual health intervention services. They are the most important of the health system inputs; the performance and the benefits of the Hallem are dependant on the knowledge, skills and motivation of those individuals responsible for delivering quality health services, headed by Human Resource Manager (HRM).
