Nurses' views: organizational resource consumption models in hospitals
The optimal use of available resources is important for every organization. Therefore, the status of resource consumption should be first specified. In this regard, research was conducted to investigate the status of organizational resource consumption from nurses' perspectives. This qualitative research with a conventional content analysis approach explored nurses' views on organizational resource consumption. 21 nurses and nursing managers in hospitals in Isfahan were selected by purposive sampling. In-depth semi-structured in-person interviews were used to collect data. Nearly 900 interpretive meanings were obtained from qualitative content analysis of in-depth interviews and field notes. Then, 63 common interpretive meanings were identified, abstracted, and labeled in 27 codes. The resulting codes were compared based on differences and similarities and were sorted into 5 sub-subcategories (Appropriate individual consumption, Properly managed consumption, Individual consumption, Deviant consumption, Compulsory extravagance) and 2 main (optimal consumption, inappropriate consumption). Findings indicated that participants had different views on the organizational resource consumption among nurses and its effective factors. Most nurses in the managerial position assumed the optimal organizational resource consumption by nurses, and a few nurses in clinical wards considered their organizational resource consumption to be optimal. Based on the results. There was wastage of organizational resources in the hospitals, and second, the wastage was not too much in terms of managers' opinion as there might be a lack of proper monitoring system or the nurses' errors were ignored by managers. Therefore, nurses' and nursing managers' views differ in ways of consuming the organizational resources.
