Title: Floating Staff
Description: Unfortunately, there are often times when staffing needs exceed staffing realities. Hence was created the concept of floating staff to cover these times. When these events become fairly routine, it is probably symptomatic of larger underlying staffing/scheduling problems which need to be addressed. When it truly is the result of unforeseen forces, however, there are ways we can at least make this a more pleasant (and even rewarding) experience for those who willingly step up to save the day.

[We] first heard Clint speak at a VHCA seminar 1 year ago - took a suggestion and put it into practice - let staff hire staff - started this immediately after the session - so we finished the year lowering our turnover from 47.4% building wide to 29.7% - and reduced LNA turnover by 13% alone!! Staff very much are vested in new employees and their success is the veteran staff's goal now - much happier workplace as well - not constantly retraining.
