Staffing in the health industry

Maybe, it is the charm of the lab coat or that passion that derives from indulging one’s disposition inclined to help people heal. Whatever it is, an interesting reason distinguishes those who decide to pursue a healthcare profession. Nurse, obstetrician, physiotherapist, and healthcare workers are some of the careers that enliven the health industry. But for everything to work out, a staffing agency is also necessary.

Nurse

The nurse deals with the assistance, care, and rehabilitation of patients. Mainly, they focus on:

 preventing and diagnosing diseases, in synergy with medical staff (only medical doctors can give a diagnose)

 assisting the patients by guaranteeing them the correct therapy as prescribed by the doctor

 educating to self-management of the disease, treatment, and rehabilitation.

The nurse also requires continuous training. In fact, they always keep up to date with new documentation and the latest changes in the industry. Frequently, a staffing agency helps hospitals with the personnel search and human resource management. Indeed, its goal is to allow their clients to find the right people at the right time: skilled nurses with knowledge of different medical-surgical branches.

Obstetrician

To define it, it is a professional figure who offers assistance in the period of pregnancy and during childbirth. For one thing, the obstetrician attends the mother during labor. The main goal is to provide first assistance to the newborn baby and mother. Moreover, obstetricians participate in health and personal education events and attend gynecological interventions.

Commonly, a staffing agency looks for candidates that possess notions of psychology, health economics, and ethical principles governing the exercise of the profession. On the whole, they focus on professionals that know the main mechanisms related to the reproductive system. Plus, any indicator that the person knows how to identify and report any suspected diseases to the medical staff is a great addendum to any curriculum.

Physiotherapist

The physiotherapist deals with therapies for the re-education of patients after motor, psychomotor, and cognitive problems. In the case of the use of prostheses, the professional trains patients to use them correctly. Depending on the type of pathology, the physiotherapist uses:

 Kinesitherapy techniques (medical-gymnastics, joint mobilization, and breathing techniques)

 Mechanotherapy (using special tools)

 Hydrotherapy and balneotherapy (underwater massage and water gymnastics)

 Electrotherapy (with the application of electrical energy)

 Cardiac rehabilitation

With all this in mind, a staffing agency must find a proper candidate. Plus, the candidate must exhibit good manual skills, physical endurance, and good relationship skills.

Healthcare workers

The last group includes computing professionals, administrative and social science experts, and secretaries/clerks. In other words, a healthcare worker supports people in meeting basic needs, both in social and health contexts, promoting their well-being and autonomy.

Some skills that a staffing agency would look out for comprise:

 assisting and helping in daily personal hygiene activities

 career background

 previous support for nursing and technical-health activities such as volunteering

 previous jobs with health and social workers, contributing to the realization of welfare projects

As far as personal attitudes are concerned, it is important to have good communication skills. In essence, supporting patients from a psychological point of view is a sought-after quality.
