Healthcare professionals choose to work for reputable healthcare travel agencies for a multitude of reasons, including the freedom and flexibility offered to choose various units, locations, extended time periods off, and so much more.
An agency partners with healthcare facilities to offer them staffing solutions on a temporary basis.
The mission of Fidelity On Call is to be a seamless part of their organization. We are not there to reinvent the wheel, but rather to keep them operating as smoothly and seamlessly as possible.
⮚ A healthcare facility has no control over who the agency sends to them.
⮚ Facilities believe the cost is too high to use supplemental staffing.
⮚ Healthcare facilities are fearful that too much training and orientation is required for a short period of time.
⮚ The belief is that supplemental staffing personnel are not qualified.
⮚ A reputable agency in professional healthcare staffing will not only provide the healthcare facility the complete professional work history, but also professional references and a thorough completed skills assessment and can arrange for phone interviews with candidates, if they would prefer.
⮚ In fact, when balanced out over time, hospital administration has learned that the cost of an employee vs. the cost of a supplemental staff member is not that far off and, in many cases, saves the facility money over time.
⮚ Accredited healthcare staffing agencies ensure that they are skills matching travelers to the position needed. Outside of the basic lay of the land travelers require very little orientation.
⮚ Again, accredited agencies are hiring professionals that are reference checked, skill checked in every possible way with national background checks, a drug screen, employment physicals etc. to ensure the person is not only qualified but highly qualified to help fill the staffing shortage.
