Labor disputes are never something you want to plan for at your hospital. Even if your unionized staff isn’t preparing for a work stoppage today, it’s always a good idea to plan for the unexpected. To that end, Healthcare Staffing Blog has listed the top 3 reasons why you need a contingency staffing plan at your facility now.
- Helps maintain quality care and patient satisfaction goals: Whenever a labor dispute takes place, your top concern is ensuring your patients continue to receive quality care. Work with a healthcare staffing agency you trust to provide fully-vetted, replacement staff, and you’ll be able to rest easy knowing your patients are in safe and competent hands. A contingency staffing plan also offers your facility the best chance to reduce any negative impact on your patients and staff.
- Saves your facility time and money: In the event of a job action, having a thoughtful staffing plan in place could actually save your facility time and money. You won’t have to scramble to find replacement staff on your own or be surprised with unforeseen monetary costs.
- Helps you keep your peace of mind: When you stick to your prepared staffing plan, you can minimize your stress levels during a work stoppage. A qualified replacement staff allows your facility to keep operations running as close to normal as possible. That means you can focus more time on ending the job action and less time worrying about disrupted work flows.
