Government-funded program offers support for leave when casual staff are in short supply

Article from HealthTimes

Leave requests and unexpected absences in health facilities are often difficult to cover when the casual pool of staff are in short supply. This scenario is all too real for rural and remote health services around Australia and the weight is shouldered by the remaining nurses and midwives who take on more of the workload to offset reduced staff numbers.

Supervising temporary replacements can also be a burden on managers as they are required to shift their attention from primary duties to ensure that the position is being covered adequately. Quality locum nurses and midwives almost guarantees a well-run health facility and minimal clinical incidents.
