Top 5 Hospital Management Tips for Healthcare Administrators




Healthcare management professionals hold vitally important positions and are responsible for the way their hospital functions. Running a hospital forces managers to juggle a variety of tasks.

Due to the importance of this position, a hospital manager should be equipped to take the necessary positive action while avoiding certain pitfalls in managing the life of a hospital.


#1. Develop a Strong Managed Care Team

Having a support staff, surgical team, emergency room team, nurses, and doctors on the same page will save a lot of headaches by managing their care team well.

Clearly defined roles that leave no room for confusion or ambiguity will mean you will not hear anyone say, "That's not my job!"


#2. Manage Stress Well

Because of its potential life-or-death nature, the healthcare industry can sometimes be a stressful place to work. The wrong medicine, extra wait time, or the wrong diagnosis could prove to be important or even fatal in certain situations.

Managing the stress that these situations bring is vital for preventing burnout and ensuring a long and stable career in your hospital. While it is important to care about the people you serve, holding on to them too much can create what is called "Compassion Fatigue" and is something important for hospital workers to be aware of.


#3. Have the Right Supplies and Equipment

Having the right equipment can literally be a life-or-death matter in the hospital industry. Ordering and storing the proper supplies, medical products, and laboratory equipment are a no brainer. But those ordering medical supplies often neglect other supplies related to the operation and safety of their hospital.

Health administration professionals need to consider what presentation furniture and sound system equipment is needed for conference rooms or for crowd control.




AmpliVox's line of elegant and versatile lecterns are perfect for board meetings and offer a professional focal point for your audience.




Having portable pa systems for clear communication is also important so that your public speaking and emergency messages will be loud and clear.


#4. Have an emergency plan

Having the right emergency plan is necessary for any school, business, and organization. It is especially important for a hospital.

Are you prepared for a power outage? If not, your patients relying on life support and medical equipment that require electricity are out of luck.

In an emergency, people need to know what to do immediately. Providing timely and accurate communication is essential to warn and direct people to take shelter, relocate, or evacuate to avoid situations that are potentially dangerous.

#5. Hire the Right People

Just like in hotel management and hiring for corporate event planning, assembling the right team with the right attitude is one of the most important things you can do.

Hiring hard workers with a team mentality is to be chosen over someone well-qualified but with a complaining and pessimistic attitude. Negative attitudes can spread across an entire department or organization given enough time.

Save the Date: 2023 Senior Living Executive Conference


AmpliVox Sound Systems recognizes the importance of senior care and as an Argentum Senior Living Supplier we collaborate with its members to shape the collective voice advancing excellence in senior living.

Argentum is the leading national association exclusively dedicated to supporting companies operating professionally managed, resident-centered senior living communities and the older adults and families they serve.

Since 1990, Argentum has advocated for choice, independence, dignity, and quality of life for all older adults.





"Often venues such as retirement homes have meeting rooms or community rooms, and they may have a sound system and a lectern, but often these don’t work together," said Don Roth, AmpliVox CEO.

"Our vast experience with wireless technology helps customers solve these problems. In our most recent retirement home application, their chair yoga classes never sounded so good!"


Expand Your Retirement Home Sound Coverage and Clarity by Integrating Multimedia Lecterns

AmpliVox Sound Systems can ensure any speaking venue can experience powerful sound coverage and clarity with its wireless sound technology configured for lecterns, remote speakers, and house PA systems.

AmpliVox's implementation of the SW3020 Wireless Victoria Lectern at the Vi At The Glen enabled residents to hear presentations and demonstrations clearly.

This was achieved by wirelessly connecting an AmpliVox lectern’s integrated sound system to the retirement home’s existing house PA system.

With this configuration, the Vi At The Glen not only assures great sound for all residents in the room, but audience members can easily pass around multiple wireless microphones for Q&A sessions.


Surprisingly, some senior residences do not have a quality sound PA system. Music therapists may struggle singing or playing music to small groups using the in house sound equipment that is often unreliable or of poor quality.

AmpliVox Sound Systems offers lightweight portable public address systems to support music therapy programs for senior residents, enabling retirement communities to play music and participate in sing-alongs, in addition to hosting live musicians and small performances.
