“These are unprecedented times. Nursing staff in almost all settings are facing challenges beyond what were ever expected. Staffing levels are poor in many places, on most shifts and care is being compromised as a result of unsustainable pressures.”
The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in many new pressures and stresses in all walks of life and it has also heightened pre-existing problems. Problems such as staffing nursing and care homes have become even more complex and problematic for a host of reasons. Some are clear and simple such as sickness levels increasing due to COVID outbreaks and periods of self-isolation. There are however, more subtle issues such as people taking time to reflect on their lives and deciding that a stressful career or a high stakes job is no longer what they want for themselves.
The cumulative effect of this has meant that more and more time has been given over to the recruitment of staff, as the turnover is higher than usual as well as the of staffing shifts taking up more time due to people cancelling at short notice due to the effects of Covid. Inevitably this puts further financial strains of agencies as well as taking up valuable time that would be better spent on other areas of their important work.
Therefore, there has never been a better time to switch these tasks from a manual system to a largely automated system using dedicated and bespoke nursing and care agency software.
At 20x we have developed a portal that will greatly reduce the time spent on areas such as recruitment as well as shift management. 20x was designed specifically for the nursing and care industry and therefore does exactly what is required of people who work in that sector.
