From census spikes to increased clinician absenteeism, the challenges healthcare systems face during flu season are extensive.
While healthcare leaders cannot expect to fully eliminate these cycles, a flu season contingency plan that includes a temporary workforce can make a significant impact on patient care.
Having a seasonal contingent workforce plan in place helps ensure continuity of care, while preventing non-sick workers from becoming overworked.
The world continues to deal with the unrelenting daily spread of COVID-19. The 2021-2022 flu season could overlap with the coronavirus pandemic, leading to increased strain on healthcare systems. Guard against the worst-case-scenario now by putting plans into place to keep your healthcare workforce staffed throughout seasonal illnesses.
