Keeping healthcare healthy
Monday, June 19, 2017
How do hospitals keep enough nursing staff on board 24/7/365 so patients stay safe and well cared for? With technology-driven medicine, a human needs to monitor all those pieces of beeping equipment and flashing screens.
According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, hospitals that struggle to keep enough nurses on staff usually have more cases of pneumonia, cardiac arrest and urinary tract infections. So staffing is an essential concern. One way to assure the proper levels is by relying on professional medical staffing service companies that use state-of-the-art recruitment and communication methods.
In the local area, that’s GrapeTree Medical Staffing in Milford, in the Iowa Lakes Corridor. It is rated in the Top 10 for reliability, in a survey of staffing firms throughout the Midwest. GrapeTree Medical Staffing was also named to the Inc. 5,000 in 2016.
