problems associated with cheap Agency Nurses are having a real effect on staff morale, patient safety and achieving regulatory compliance
Nursing agency Hospital Solutions has reported 500% growth in the last year, despite budget pressures on both NHS and private healthcare providers.
Managing Director Robert McAdam attributed the growth to providers rejecting a focus on cost cutting in favour of recruiting higher quality and reliable Registered Nurses to cover temporary staffing needs.
"We are finding that the vast majority of our clients have tired of temporary nursing staff being unreliable, uninvolved and in some cases unsafe. They have turned from cost cutting services to Hospital Solutions Ltd in order to ensure that they provide high quality nursing care to their patients and residents”
“In our opinion, despite the pressures to put cost before quality, Nursing Homes and NHS wards are finding that the problems associated with cheap Agency Nurses are having a real effect on staff morale, patient safety and achieving regulatory compliance",says Robert McAdam.
Hospital Solutions maintains rigorous selection criteria and high levels of accountability with its nurse led recruitment criteria and a focus on clinical and communication skills as well as qualifications and experience. The agency has seen growth of over 500% from 2013/14 to 2014/15 as the unintended consequences of using cheap agency nurses becomes clear.
