- This study investigates how environmental threats may adversely affect internal resources
(slacks) and how hospitals’ slack level may mediate the adverse effect of environmental
threats on quality. Two testable hypotheses are (1) The environmental threat
and level of organizational slack in hospitals are inversely related; and (2) Hospitals’
slack level and quality of care are positively related. Both hypotheses are supported
by the data in analysis of the structural relationships among the environmental threat,
organizational slack, and quality of care indicators.
