Insights and advice for healthcare temps and employers.


There are several reasons why a nursing home might use a temp agency for staffing needs:

  1. Flexibility: Temp agencies can provide nursing home staff on an as-needed basis, allowing the facility to adjust staffing levels based on current demand.
  2. Cost-effectiveness: Temp agencies can often provide staff at a lower cost than hiring permanent employees, as they handle all aspects of payroll, benefits, and other HR-related tasks.
  3. Wide pool of talent: Temp agencies often have a large pool of qualified candidates to choose from, which can be helpful for filling positions quickly or finding staff with specialized skills.
  4. Ease of use: Working with a temp agency can be a convenient way for nursing homes to quickly fill staffing gaps without the time and effort involved in recruiting, interviewing, and hiring permanent employees.
  5. Legal protections: Temp agencies can provide legal protections for both the nursing home and the temporary staff, as they handle all employment-related issues and ensure compliance with relevant laws and regulations.
