There is a Physician Shortage
This example really happened and it reminds us how severe the physician shortage is. It is another reason your HR should try PX3 Medical Staffing.
Meet Ted. Ted’s wife Kay was eight months pregnant when both Ted and Kay contracted COVID-19. Ted was ill, but Kay was getting sicker. Soon Kay’s doctor decided to hospitalize her and perform an emergency C-section to protect the baby. The baby needed oxygen but quickly rebounded and was released once Ted could prove negativity for COVID. The baby’s mother, Kay spiraled downward until a ventilator was necessary, followed by a period on an ECMO machine.
It soon became apparent that Kay needed to be transferred to a bigger hospital with the necessary equipment and surgical capability. Kay might need a lung transplant. There was a hospital within a two hour drive. Unfortunately, it was experiencing a bed and staff shortage. There was another hospital a four hour drive away, but it also had a bed and staff shortage. Kay had to be flown to healthcare facilities in another state, a twelve hour drive away from her husband and newborn baby.
Non healthcare workers believed the country will get back to normal in the wake of the pandemic. Unfortunately, the virus is not done wreaking havoc. We are hardly better prepared, staffed or stocked for it than we were a year ago. Hospitals have a critical bed and human resource shortage. In the past, US hospitals have relied on transferring staff and equipment from a surplus area to the facility experiencing a critical need. Today, every hospital HR is scrambling to find reliable skilled physicians to recruit. Your HR should try PX3 Medical Staffing to gain the recruitment edge.
