The healthcare industry is changing and growing. Patients want more personalized care, healthcare workers want flexible schedules and the regulations seem tighter than ever. Developing an effective risk management strategy and working with a nurse staffing liability broker can make your staffing agency a safer place.
Lower Insurance Rates
Insurance premiums are based on the risk factors of a company and the number of claims filed. Developing a risk management strategy can reduce claims and help lower the policy premium.
Minimize Company Risks
An effective risk management plan starts with assessing your risks and appointing a committee to be accountable. Once the risks are assessed, the committee can develop a plan to reduce risks and keep both patients and employees safe. One easy way to lower risks is by inspecting any new location prior to sending a staff member there.
Safer Work Environment
A comprehensive risk management strategy makes working for your company a safer place. Nursing is already fraught with liabilities resulting from sick patients needing the care and love of top-notch staff. A safe working environment makes working for your staffing agency more enjoyable for the staff.
Staffing nurses to a variety of locations can be a challenging business. A nurse staffing liability broker can help you come up with ways to properly protect your business and reduce your risks.
