- More than half of respondents (56%) rate their organization’s staffing process as not effective

- Only 23% of respondents feel their organization is effective at identifying physicians who are at risk of displaying disruptive behaviors
The results clearly show that many healthcare organizations need to refine their staffing and recruiting techniques, and perhaps take more time to vet candidates. Finding the perfect permanent candidate is a time-consuming process, and organizations cannot afford to leave the position vacant. Doing so could cause thousands of dollars in lost professional fees and referrals. Instead, they should consider using qualified locum tenens physicians and nurse practitioners to bridge the gap.
