Care for Caregivers to Win the Staffing Battle

Medical Solutions

The nursing labor shortage is not going away any time soon. There’s no magic wand for addressing the short supply of clinicians. So, what can be done now? Retain staff.

Medical Solutions is an endorsed business partner of the MHA and a leading provider of innovative staffing support through its Managed Services Provider program. A new blog titled How Retention is the New Recruitment from Medical Solutions looks at the value of retention. It addresses the real cost of turnover as well as the challenges created by nurse burnout. Finally, it outlines steps that facilities can take to better retain their valuable staff.
