The first cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) on U.S. soil were reported in a 100-bed Washington State skilled nursing facility (SNF) on January 21, 2020. On January 22, only three of the facility’s full-time nursing professionals showed up for work. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) was compelled to bring contract staff to the facility to care for its residents. As the current crisis drags on, and with other potential pandemics/disasters on the horizon, SNFs of all sizes in all corners of the country will find it harder and harder to attract qualified full-time employees and retain them over time. Not surprisingly, clinical, accounting and financial implications of this are profound. So, how do you endeavor to maintain a full-time employee base, solidify your facility’s finances, and provide optimal resident care in the process? This presentation can help you chart a path forward. In it, we will share nine strategies for staffing around accounting, financial and clinical considerations, recruitment practices, engagement, and more.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify three considerations when using contract labor
  2. Identify three strategies to attract and hire the right employees
  3. Identify three strategies to increase your current workforce numbers
