Medical Staff Motivation - Essential Condition for Obtaining a High Level of Performance in Hospitals in Romania


  • Adriana ZANFIR

    (The Bucharest Academy of Economic Studies)


Development of the health sector, superior performance achievement for units providing medical services and health services improvment have been the main objectives of health reform in the last two decades. In addition to economic and financial issues, the human resources policies have been studied in an attempt to solve some of the deficiencies in this system. All changes resulting from healthcare reforms and legislative changes had some negative influences on the volume and working conditions in the hospital sector. Thus Romania has become the leading exporter of medical personnel in the European market. In this context, rural areas are the most affected ones and many hospitals remained without coverage in certain specialties. Therefore we believe that in order to improve the quality of health services it is essential to identify the motivational elements that can overcome the obstacles imposed by the system.
