Developing critical thought in leadership is a reflective experience that occurs physiologically through neuro-pathways in the brain. Reflection, however, seems to elude the quick pace of day to day management activity. Often managers spend their day responding to urgent needs, multi-tasking along the way. Reflection time for the sake of critical thought may be a rarity. However, there is an added risk to the development of critical thought that is far greater than what happens in the environmental work world. It is a risk you will find right in front of your eyes and at your fingertips. The threat is to the inner-working of the brain from constant contact and essential dependence on Internet interaction. In health care we use the internet to access patient records, analyze data, orient new employees, teach patients, provide in-service to staff, and communicate with colleagues. The Internet is used for every matter of business under the "health care sun" from accreditation to proposals of funding and research. We cannot escape the necessary use of the Internet. It has become a global phenomenon.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) determined that all inpatient falls are preventable and therefore, substantial reimbursement funds have been withheld (CMS, 2006). The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimate that inpatient falls occur as frequently as every 11 seconds and thirty percent of those falls result in injuries that are expected to cost approximately 54.9 billion by 2020 (CDC, 2013).
