Protecting Your Staff and Preparing for Surge - Critical Care Staffing

Healthcare staffing is one of the biggest challenges for medical facilities during Covid 19. No one knows where or when increased staffing may be needed. There are so many questions. What positions need to be filled? How long will we need them? How do we find qualified healthcare workers to fill these positions?


But protecting your Critical Care Staff is extremely important and the first step towards preparing for the surge.

Being charged with treating critically ill Covid 19 patients not only comes with significant risk, it is stressful, emotionally taxing and fear inducing.

Doing everything possible to provide a constant supply of PPE to your critical care staff is the first step to protecting your valued team members. Assuring your staff has access to counseling and a means of working through the stress and fear will also help them work through any issues.

But there will be long hours and exhaustion. And unfortunately, you will have critical care workers who become ill. For Medical Facilities, any decline in staff at this time can be devastating to the facility, the staff, and the patients. There has to be a balance.


Medical facilities and Healthcare companies across the country are now urgently trying to fill many key Healthcare positions in order to prepare for the surge and create a balance for current staff. Because of the high demand for Healthcare workers mixed with a dwindling number due to exposure-caused quarantine or illness, the competition to fill these key Healthcare positions is greater than ever.

Healthcare companies who have only used internal hiring departments are getting overwhelmed. These departments not only have to assess the staffing needs, they must list the positions, go through resumes, conduct interviews, and then do all the compliance and onboarding. And all this must be done immediately and in a highly competitive market.

And then there is the added strain to the Healthcare Facility of Human Resource Management, Payroll and Benefits for all new hires. This can be extremely overwhelming to even the best Medical Facilities.

According to, “One of the biggest challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic is the potential shortage of healthcare workers and how to ramp up healthcare hiring quickly.

As the system reaches its maximum capacity and healthcare professionals themselves begin to get sick and need to quarantine, hospitals, nursing homes, and other healthcare facilities are in need of additional help and backup staff.”

More and more, Medical Facilities and Healthcare Companies are turning to staffing agencies to handle this overwhelming need and create a much needed balance.

But not every Staffing Agency is the same. It is extremely important to find a Staffing Agency that specializes in Healthcare Recruiting, Onboarding and Compliance. This will insure that all positions are filled quickly and with qualified Healthcare workers. A specialized Healthcare Staffing Agency has built relationships with Healthcare workers and can tap them to fill many open positions.

An agency that specializes in Healthcare Staffing has recruiters who understand the client’s needs and know how to properly screen applicants. These agencies also understand the detailed Compliance and Onboarding requirements necessary to get the Healthcare worker started immediately.

Although a Staffing Agency can be used for permanent hire positions, using a Staffing Agency for temporary positions relieves the burden that comes with permanent placement hires. The Agency will handle all payroll and benefits for the temporary, contracted hires.

The need is great and hiring a Staffing Agency that specializes in Healthcare Staffing will help to protect your Critical Care Staff, create a balance, and help prepare your facility for the surge.
