Four Things You Should Want in a Staffing Partner: Thoughts From A CNO

When it comes to choosing a staffing partner for your healthcare needs, making the right decision is crucial for the success and efficiency of your operations. As Kevin Harris, Chief Nursing Officer for FleetNurse discusses, whether you're a healthcare facility manager, or a nurse seeking new opportunities, there are a few key factors to consider when comparing staffing partners.


1 - Specialization in Healthcare and Services:

When evaluating staffing partners, prioritize those that specialize in healthcare services. FleetNurse stands out by focusing on the unique demands of the healthcare industry, ensuring they understand the specific needs and challenges faced by healthcare professionals operating in a mobile setting. This specialization can lead to more tailored solutions and better support for your staffing requirements for your internal and external workforce.  It is important to not only meet current workforce demands but are also adaptable to the evolving landscape of healthcare services.


2 - Comprehensive Screening and Credentialing Process:


A reliable staffing partner should have a rigorous screening and credentialing process to ensure the competence and qualifications of the healthcare professionals they provide. FleetNurse prides itself on its thorough vetting processes, including background checks, licensure verification, and skills assessments by being Joint Commission Certified.  Our technology also allows you access to these documents immediately.  By choosing partners with stringent screening procedures, you can trust that the healthcare staff they supply meets the highest standards and meets compliance.  This ensures that your workforce is not only skilled but also compliant with industry standards and regulations. 


3 - Flexibility and Timeliness:

In the fast-paced world of healthcare, flexibility and timeliness are crucial. Evaluate staffing partners based on their ability to adapt to your changing needs and provide timely solutions. FleetNurse excels in offering flexible staffing options to accommodate fluctuating demand, ensuring you have the right personnel when and where you need them, even on short notice, less than 24hrs time of need.

With FleetNurse, if there is a sudden increase in patient volume or a high number of staff absences, hospitals can quickly find additional nurses through FleetNurse to ensure that patient care is not compromised 24/7.
