Overtime costs amount to millions of Canadian healthcare dollars each year. Using temporary staff can significantly reduce the amount of overtime costs incurred in your facility.
By utilizing temporary staff to fill immediate staffing shortages, clients of Solutions Staffing Inc. have realized significant savings over pre-booking overtime.
Relief staff allow time for you as a Manager to be proactive rather than reactive. Using temporary nurses and healthcare professionals sourced through Solutions Staffing facilitates additional cost savings and benefits, such as:
- Reduced sick time

There is generally a base hourly, daily, or weekly fee plus charges for overtime and on-call. In the case of travel assignments, you will also be responsible for travel costs to and from the nurse’s city of residence to your facility and the cost of their accommodations in your location. Solutions Staffing works hard to ensure the most cost-effective travel and accommodations by providing extended length assignments and long-term housing wherever possible.
