November 18, 2008
Within many organizations you may see that some things just arenâ€™t the best that they
should be. In planning, management should really take into perspective that there are many
factors that come along with the job. For the record, management should be aware of all the legal
issues, ethics and corporate social responsibilities that may affect the planning in the
organization. All these factors are important and should be taken very seriously because of their

So since management has seemed to leave these issues undefined he is basically putting our patients at an all time high in financing. The patientsâ€™ insurances are not paying and this is happening because in Panama everyone paid for their services out of pocket and insurance wasnâ€™t really a big factor to people in that country. Management is suffering because they are afraid to tell him just how we do it in the states due to the fact that they think he may not want to abide by the rules and leave. Also the fact that he is a foreign man and we have all American women, they fear he may think they are picking on him and nor offering just treatment amongst the...
