Nursing - HOW THE JOB MARKET HAS BEEN IMPACTED BY COVID-19 BY Rhian Smith

I still can’t quite comprehend what is going on in the world right now, although I am doing my best to make sure I am moving along with it and implementing anything I can to safeguard my agency nurses.

The way we are looking at things is that people take precedence over profit, without doubt. I would like to think this is how every agency is feeling, but I have heard a few horror stories. I understand the need to maintain business, but there are lives at stake. Our approach to recruitment, at this very moment, is to focus on ensuring the incredible nurses that are working through Hoop are safe and know that we sincerely care about their well-being. We of course, need more nurses to support the homes and are actively, yet sensitively recruiting.

In terms of changes, we have noticed a massive influx in nursing services across the private sector reaching out and needing support of agency staff, but as quickly as their own staff are isolating, we naturally are experiencing the same issue, and it is completely understandable as to why the nurses are isolating. They are following government guidance and being responsible.

Hoop work with some wonderful services and are completely humbled by what they are doing to make sure the residents in their care continue to receive the care and social interactions that they need, despite working on skeletal staff numbers. We are recruiting to increase our capacity to support them and help them in the fight against this pandemic. 

 
Thanks,
