Working for hospice care can truly be one of the most rewarding in the medical field. This type of nursing is far from routine. Nurses provide comfort and pain management to patients, helping those with life-limiting illnesses to spend precious time with their families. Part of their job is respecting the wishes of the dying, and preserving their dignity. The problem with hospice as a business, however, is that it is difficult to retain high-quality medical professionals when there is so much fluctuation in demand.
As uncomfortable as it is to say, patient turn-over is high. At the same time, there is no room for sub-par nursing care or gaps in service. So, the best nurses must be retained. So, how do you remain “on the ready” when the number of patients varies to much? That’s where expert medical staffing can help.
Frankly, hospice isn’t different from any other business that has innate fluctuations in demand. And, that is what Staffing Perfection was established to handle. We can very quickly provide high-quality pre-screened medical staff that is ready to fill those urgent vacancies. Hospice staffing is highly sensitive. We know that getting the perfect person on board has to be quick, and that we have to get it right the first time.
The type of care a hospice nurse provides goes beyond what you learn in nursing school. Nurses providing these services must be prepared to support both patient and family with their emotional and even spiritual needs. It truly is a higher calling, and I am proud to fill those staffing needs with those that meet these highest of standards.
