What is the point of being efficient?
because if it hospitla is private it is a business. and businesses do what? make money if there are mens to increase profits it is the duty of the hospital to enage in that acitvity that does that.
yes they can pass the cost on to the the patients but let use an example
if a hospital uses an estimated x amount of product b a year. liek any business that uses material to provide services be they hospitals machine shops or factories, the idea of having certain y amount of product b is important in case of an accident that dmages a percentage of the material or misuse of it that requires or unexpected in crease in dmeand for that service.
now amount y needsto be calculated no? if you buy too much you cut into your profits, if you buy to little you cut into your profit by not be able to provide the service.
and that is jsut dealign withe the logistic of materials.
the point in short is
mo money mo money mo money.
