The situation at hand calls for an immediate adoption of a contingency approach. According to Fiedler (2015), the Contingency Theory of Leadership is based on the continually changing empirical generalizations. The approach calls for the design of a response to an arising situation and then thinking about the theoretical construct that will go with such theories. As such, I would not give the rumors much thought, as they are disruptive. I would like to see the normal operations running in their ordinary way until something comes up and demands more attention. This will ensure that there is a continuous flow of work until something happens to halt the current hospital operations. At the same time, I will engage in mapping any services that can be halted in case a demanding emergency comes up.
To learn more about the situation at the scene, I would engage the concerned authorities such as the police and first aid responders. Entertaining news from all possible sources is detrimental since some people might be acting out of emotion, need for recognition, and panicking. The authorities are at the heart of the situation and are able to determine the weight of the matter since they have been trained to be calm and objective under such conditions.
Managing the situation and causing minimum disruption to regular hospital functioning is critical to the success of the operation. To achieve this, the first reaction will be to assure all concerned members of staff to embrace sobriety and not to panic. The mindset is important in ensuring that people remain calm and collected and ready to act. With such a mindset, it will be easy to control action and direct it towards a more useful result.
