Some also believe that the origin of the hospital from the word ‘HOSPITUM’ a rest house for travelers or night shelter showing ‘hospitality’ to the guests.
Hospital. is a social organisation and logical combination of the activities of a number of persons with different level of knowledge and skills for achieving a common goal of patient care through a hierarchy of authority and responsibility
Organising is a process of grouping the activities in workable units and connected by authority, communication and control.
Decentralisation should not be totally free from control of central authority.
The degree and extent of de centralisation should match organisation function and objective.
Decentralisation should be within the policy frame work of each organisation and at where needed.
ORGANOGRAM It is a diagrammatic representation of the administrative set up which easily shows the line of command, control and responsibility ,staff relation,job grouping and communication. SCALAR ORGANOGRAM VERTICAL MATRIX OR MIXED TYPE The structure of the organogram is like a pyramid, broader at base taper at appex. Hospital has got a Matrix type of Organogram.
MATRIX ORGANISATION 1. Matrix organisation is a mix of product and function where people with similar skills are grouped together to execute activities to achieve organisational objective. 2. In a hospital some part of the organisation has scalar type of function while others are informally structured. 3. The hospital provides patient care with a multi functional team comprising of people with different level of knowledge and skill. 4. There are therefore dual reporting system at various levels. 5. It is structured in such a way that facilitates horizontal flow of authority in addition to its vertical control.
MATRIX ORGANISATION 6. The matrix structure gets its name for its resemblance to a table which has both rows and columns 7. The functional manager in the matrix work with the project manager to asses the resource requirement 8. And their timely utilisation by the functional manager.. 9. The general manager is at the top and outside the basic matrix net work 10. Information sharing is mandatory in such an organisation 11. The basis for hospital to have a matrix organisational structure to create a synergism through shared responsibility between the administrative and functional departments in the hospital system.

It helps to identify in consistencies and complexities in the organisation structure.
Helps to identify major line of decision making authority.

SUPERVISION AND AUTHORITY SUPERVISION AND CONTROL Integration Co- ordination Hierarchy Or Vertical linkage Grouping Or Horizontal linkage
SUPERVISION AND AUTHORITY 1.Hierarchy i) Hierarchy shows the tire of Superior- Sub-ordinate relation ship. ii) Extent to which it should be tall or short depends on the type and function of the organisation. 2. Span of control i) It expresses the number of persons that a manager can directly control or supervise ii) This depends on type of sctivity,knowledge,skill leadership quality of supervisor. 3. Unity of command i) The basic principle of span of control is unity of command. ii) The sub-ordinate should take direction from one authority only. iii) There by increases efficiency and effectiveness of the organisation iv) Therefore grouping in the organisation is essential.
Integration is the linking of line function to staff (group) function to make it a unified whole.
But the problem in the hospital is because of functional groups with different skills and iob responsibility like doctors, nurses, technical and un skilled group ‘D’ staff.
The group intrests does not always match with organisational interest.
Further there is a difference between administration and clinicians.
Hence matrix structure is most suitable.
Integration then therefore be brought through standardisation of activities, through rules, regulations and clear cut job description in a way that one group have job dependence on the other group.
