Eliminate unplanned staffing vacancies in your healthcare facility with an integrated managed services provider program
September 11, 2014 by Vickie Anenberg
Unplanned staffing vacancies cause headaches for everyone involved. Unfilled positions create extra costs, which result from covering overtime and temporary staffing. In turn, this places stress on remaining staff and even compromises patient satisfaction and quality of care. An integrated managed services provider (MSP) program can mitigate these issues by filling vacancies quickly and with quality professionals.
In addition to higher costs, staffing vacancies also lead to increased patient loads for nurses. Studies have shown a significant decrease in quality of care when a nurse's patient load increases. For each additional patient per RN, hospitals found an overall increase in hospital-acquired pneumonia, pulmonary failure and medical complications.
Cross Country Staffing aims to be a strategic business partner for your healthcare facility. Our integrated MSP program places a tenured clinical leader on-site. He or she will work with your staff to develop a thorough staffing plan. We’ll meet with your unit or floor manager to gain a better understanding of planned and unplanned vacancies, followed by placing qualified staff members in the appropriate positions without overspending.
With dedicated travel, per diem and permanent placement brands, as well as a devoted staffing team delivering live 24-hour customer support, we will provide the healthcare professionals and cost-management tools you can depend on. Our MSP program will help you:
- Reduce onboarding costs and reliance on outside agencies
- Improve compliance tracking
- Ensure staff-credentialing compliance with an enhanced credential management and verification process
