for the medical community at the work life and at the institutionalization
process of a hospital.

echelon executives were included in the study. A questionnaire was sent.

did not use their leadership skills, although they emphasized the importance
of the process of institutionalization of a hospital, they do not take
step forward in this issue.

skills, they should be unafraid to take step toward institutionalization,
