The healthcare industry is a highly regulated environment where it can be a challenge to maintain compliance with the myriad of requirements set forth by regulatory bodies such as Medicare. Staffing is vital to compliance – whether it’s the need to hire professionals who understand the regulations, ensuring new hires have the proper licenses and certifications, or maintaining required patient-staff ratios in your skill nursing facility or other healthcare facility.

Perhaps your healthcare facility must follow Medicare requirements for staffing. Or maybe your specialization requires a high level of skill to follow very specific and demanding processes.
