There are many benefits to having a reliable nursing staff agency for assisted living communities. Some of the most important benefits include:
Access to a wider pool of qualified nurses: Nursing staff agencies have access to a wider pool of qualified nurses and nurse assistants than most assisted living communities do. This means that they can more easily find nurses with the specific skills and experience that are needed to provide quality care to residents.
Flexibility: Nursing staff agencies can provide flexibility to assisted living communities. For example, they can provide additional nurses during peak times, such as when there are more residents in the community or when there are special events happening. They can also provide nurses to cover for staff who are sick or on vacation.
Cost savings: Nursing staff agencies can save assisted living communities money. This is because they do not have to pay for the cost of hiring, training, and benefits for nurses and nurse assistants.
Peace of mind: Knowing that there is a reliable nursing staff agency available can give assisted living communities peace of mind. This is because they know that they will have access to qualified nursing staff who can provide quality care to residents, even if their own staff are not available.
In addition to these benefits, working with a reliable nursing staff agency can also help assisted living communities to improve their quality of care, attract and retain residents, and comply with regulations.
Here are some additional tips for choosing a reliable nursing staff agency:
Get references: Ask the nursing staff agency for references from other assisted living communities that they have worked with. This will give you an idea of the quality of their services.
Check their credentials: Make sure that the nursing staff agency is licensed and insured. You should also check their credentials to make sure that their nurses are qualified to provide care to the residents of your community.
Visit their facilities: If possible, visit the nursing staff agency's facilities. This will give you a chance to see how they operate and to meet some of their staff.
Get everything in writing: Make sure that you get everything in writing, including the terms of your contract and the rates that you will be charged.
