Scenario: You are employed by a 240-bed urban medical center. You directly supervise 30 staff Physical Therapists in the Rehabilitation Department in which you are the Department Head (DH). Over the last 5 years leadership has discussed merging with another smaller hospital in the local area. This hospital is a 120-bed facility that has faced various financial and patient care safety issues. As a result of the merger the management structure has been realigned to ensure operational functions of both physical facilities are controlled by a single manager-you have been chosen as that new manager.

Instructions: Choose one of the six basic management functions: Planning, Organizing, Directing, Decision Making, Staffing or Controlling. Clearly describe why you chose this function and why you feel this particular function is essential to your effective management as a result of the merger.
