ÿCase Study ScenarioThe quarterly reports of expenditures for all the St. Agnes Health System have been distributed. You are the Director Team for the Orthopedic Clinic, and your area has seriously overspent its budget for the third consecutive quarter. There are rumors circulating that your job depends on reducing costs for supplies, the most expensive item on the list. Other rumors suggest that all the clinic nurses fear they will lose their jobs if the poor financial report for the clinic causes the board to convert the clinic into an urgent care. Although morale has been low, you have been adequately staffed and there seems to be an increase in sick calls by everyone on the team.
