Staffing agencies in the healthcare world play an important role in the care of its patients & residents. Although it brings many benefits such as quick access to staff, cost-effective and flexibility, it comes with it’s own set of challenges that aren’t sustainable for long-term care.
Instead of relying on agency staff who may be contracted or temporary employees, Auburn Village hires and employs its own permanent staff members to fulfill various roles and positions. This can include nurses, physicians, allied health professionals, administrative staff, and other healthcare workers.
Becoming agency free in staffing can have several benefits for a healthcare facility, such as increased continuity of care, improved staff familiarity with the facility’s policies and procedures, better team cohesion, and potential cost savings. It allows the facility to have more control over their workforce and establish long-term relationships with their employees.
Auburn Village accomplishes this by lowering employee turn-over rate, creating a family like culture and promoting from within. Auburn Village is the home of many family members and friends, an awarding work environment that ultimately benefits the staff and residents at our facility and ultimately accomplishing our goal of improving quality and continuity of care.
