Flexible Staffing: Innovative Interim Solutions for Hospital Units


Brought to you by the


Staff turnover rates for registered nurses continue to rise, according to recent data. Studies show that turnover for bedside RNs can cost hospitals between $5 million and $8 million annually—but flexible staffing models can help hospital managers control labor costs while managing their staff’s time.

Earl Dalton, chief nursing officer at Health Carousel, will discuss the effects of inadequate nurse staffing in hospital units and offer insights into ways that flexible staffing can help hospitals maintain optimal patient–nurse ratios. There will be an opportunity to have your questions answered at the end of the session.

During this webinar, attendees will learn:

  • How to measure the negative effects of inadequate hospital staffing
  • How to determine “operational vacancy” and distinguish it from “true vacancy”
  • Ways to persuade hospital managers of the benefits of flexible staffing
