Hospitals, clinics, and medical groups throughout Illinois need to staff their facility for several reasons. In many cases, a physician or other medical professional takes a vacation, has a leave of absence, or leaves the industry. With that, it is vital to find someone to fill the role, even temporarily. A locum tenens is the medical version of temporary employees. They will often work at your facilities for several weeks to a few months. These physician assistants can handle all the patient loads and clinical responsibilities as your full-time staff members.
These individuals are there to help:
• Assist with patients
• Order and interpret tests
• Write prescriptions
• Provide a high level of medical care
• Handle administrative duties
Locum tenens are a cost-effective solution to help support your permanent staff. You can have full staffing during the peak season and maintain those maximum levels at all times. Locum tenens can help take some of the work burdens off your regular staff, helping to alleviate the everyday pressures in the industry.
