Today’s Healthcare Facilities Know that Preparation for Any Nurse Staffing Contingency is a Major Factor for Success

Preparing for Fall, Winter and Flu Seasons

If COVID-19 has taught us anything, it has highlighted the need for a plan of action that covers the most important bases. As vaccinations are rolled out across the nation and we begin our journey back to normalcy, we must keep an eye on what may be a challenging fall, winter, and flu season in 2021 and into 2022.

Fall and Winter Seasons Create Unique Healthcare Staffing Shortages

As the U.S. population becomes more mobile with the decrease of COVID-19, with people going back to in-person work and school, forecasts for a more significant flu season could increase.  The combination of the annual flu epidemic and any new resurgence in the Coronavirus pandemic could mean a greater need for nurse staffing. 

Upcoming Nurse Staffing Coverage Scenarios to Consider

  • Back to school nurse staffing as students return to onsite learning
  • Staffing needs for companies as they return their workforce to the office
  • COVID-19 vaccination and/or testing onsite or in special locations (airports, pop up hubs)
  • Increased census with patients pursuing medical treatments delayed during COVID-19
  • Coverage for nurse staffing fluctuations, including vacancies, leaves of absence, vacations, or during necessary permanent staff training
