Reduce staff turnover in your healthcare facility.

Reduce staff turnover in your healthcare facility.November 14, 2014 by Vickie Anenberg

Many factors are driving the looming shortage of qualified professionals in the healthcare industry, from increased demand for healthcare services to the aging of the baby boomer generation. While some of those forces are beyond your control, you can make an impact in one key area: reducing staff turnover.

Turnover costs your healthcare facility on multiple levels. When a nurse leaves, it costs thousands of dollars – and sometimes 10s of thousands – to replace him or her. Vacancies place stress on remaining staff, impact patient perception and care, and ultimately influence patient outcomes.
