The shortage of nursing staff puts any shortfall management to a hard test. Conventional outage concepts do not meet the new challenges, or are simply no longer practicable. New solutions have to be found - but in practice these often involve enormous communication efforts and a high degree of complexity.
In case of short-term absences (e.g. due to illness), costly telephone chains not only cost time and nerves, but also expose employees to great pressure. Often a few nurses carry the entire burden of the team.
This conflict between staffing requirements on the wards (intensified by the Nursing Strengthening Act) and employee satisfaction through less pressure and more planning reliability leads to - frustration on the part of nursing management and nursing staff.
The solution to these challenges lies in sustainable shortfall management, supported by intelligent, digital systems from Cliniserve.
