Abstract
As hospitals attempt to decrease their costs to survive in today's health c are market, they are implementing resizing strategies that promise greater efficiency. A by-product has been the elimination of many management and su pervisory positions. A self-administered questionnaire was sent to a strati fied random sample of 750 hospitals (yielding a 46% return rate) to study t he types of supervisory models being utilized and the factors associated wi th their differential use. While concern is expressed about the erosion of clinical supervision, the data suggests that the majority of social workers are receiving supervision from a social worker.
