Re: Discussion - Week 6
The issues that merger can face are leadership, lack of communication, human resource management, staffing and benefit issues. Staffs are more interested with their benefits, in the case of PRMC and BRMC, rules of benefit might be an issue as well general rules. Another issue is staffing, the more staff you have the more money you are losing form the hospital and have less savings. Other issues could also run into such as the codes rules and regulations, these are some of the factors that need to consider (Buchbinder & Shank, 2012).
Disadvantage of this merger is going to raise more competition among Individual that are currently being staffed for the same positions. The process of successful merging require wise consolidation and management, leadership, strong communication between the two institutions (Buchbinder & Shank, 2012) .
