As mentioned in our previous blog, there are two kinds of staffing that we deal with as a medical staffing agency in Auburn Hills, Michigan— temporary and permanent staffing.
Permanent staffing is easy to understand by most, but some people don’t understand how temporary staffing works in the healthcare industry. Again, temporary staffing is when healthcare professionals in Michigan are hired only on a part-time basis. Once the need for their services is fulfilled, they could be let go and be free to find another job.
To better understand temporary staffing, let us look at the perfect example— a direct care aide also called a caregiver who is hired for respite care services.
A respite care service is simply having another caretaker take over tasks on a temporary basis. If the main caregiver— another professional or a family member— needs to take some time off, the family will contact a provider of home care services to replace him or her for up to five days.
Once the main caregiver returns and is ready to assume the responsibility, the respite care worker is then released for other work that his or her employer will assign.
