Staffing post Covid-19 will be a shift in Healthcare like no other.
The need for job fulfillment of positions such physical therapists, occupational therapists, and even speech therapists have been put on the back burner the last few months, and the demand had shifted toward the need for respiratory therapists among ICU physicians and nurses, RNS, and so on.
The pandemic has caused the cancellation of voluntary and non-emergency procedures, and In California, thousands of nurses, doctors and other medical staff have been laid off or furloughed or have taken a pay cut since mid-March.
According to Federal Labor Statistics:
“Employment declined by 2.5 million in education and health services in April. In health care, employment declined by 1.4 million, led by losses in offices of dentists (-503,000), offices of physicians (-243,000), and offices of other health care practitioners (-205,000).”
As the pandemic continues to flatten, and the shelter in place is lifted, we’re going to see surges in COVID cases which will result in sudden urgent needs for healthcare personnel. This is where healthcare staffing companies come in. A sense of trust and dependability has been created due to staffing agencies abilities to deliver help during this critical time. That won’t change post Covid-19. We are still here to help.
