According to Frederick Herzberg theory on motivation, The Teaching Hospital should motivate employees by adopting a democratic approach to management and by improving the nature and content of the actual job through certain methods. For achieving the methods it should be considered on:

Job enlargement – workers being given a greater variety of tasks to perform (not necessarily more challenging) which should make the work more interesting. Like Dr. Uric in the case, he always cares for the patient, good management to staffs, and he shares his grant money to his units. 

Job enrichment - involves workers being given a wider range of more complex, interesting and challenging tasks surrounding a complete unit of work. This should give a greater sense of achievement. Without the involvement from staff as the case, Dr. Conrad’s approach was failure that made the 90 of the older employees were gone.  So, it should be made everyone in the hospital involve for improve their work and lead the task properly.

Empowerment means delegating more power to employees to make their own decisions over areas of their working life. As in the case, Uric is the one who could manage the renal unit, therefore the last of decision of dean and executive committee placed Uric back as head of the renal unite to manage the job because he knew about the situation, what the need of hospital, patients and staffs.
