This study explores the perceptions of operational managers regarding time management in relation to execution of nursing care activities at the Mankweng hospital. Data were collected from 12 participants until data saturation was reached. Four themes and their sub-themes emerged from data analysis using the Tesch's open coding qualitative analysis method.
