While the results of the study suggested that “engaged employees perceive their organizations to be effective” and that criterion such as employee vigor, dedication, and absorption may significantly impact organizational effectiveness (Kataria, et al., 2013), they also agree that the finding are broadly consistent with previous studies.
While instructional in definition, context, and history, the aforementioned study strikes this author as confirmation of the obvious and leads to a desire for answers to perhaps more relevant questions.

Paying attention to the small details and needs of each individual patient will lead to higher-quality patient care.
