Doctor shortage leads to greater use of PAs and NPs as temps
Hospitals and health systems are increasingly turning to temporary physician assistants and nurse practitioners during staffing shortages, according to a new survey. Staff Care, a national temporary health care staffing firm, reported that requests for temporary PAs and NPs constituted 10% of requests in 2012, while in 2010 it made up about 2% of requests.

Nurse staffing affects pediatric outcomes
It is widely understood that healthcare organizations experiencing staff shortages are struggling to meet the needs of their patient populations while simultaneously focusing on cutting costs. As much as recent healthcare reforms underscore the importance of cost-efficiency in the healthcare industry, providers cannot afford to sacrifice quality of care to meet updated financial goals

Does a Temporary Employee Have Rights Under the FMLA?
If a contingent worker on assignment takes leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act, must the client accept the worker back once he or she returns from FMLA leave? Assuming the temporary employee meets the FMLA’s eligibility criteria, and assuming that both the staffing company and the client employ at least 50 employees*, both will have FMLA responsibilities toward temporary employees.

Let’s wrap up our tour of the U.S. by taking a look at the Midwest (get our round up for the West Coast here, the East Coast here and the South here). Keep in mind that the facts and figures are mostly related to new nurses, and numbers might be higher for nurses with more experience or for those in specific specialties.
