Last month, David Farrell, Vice President of Subacute Operations at Telecare, co-authored an article for Provider Magazine with Cathie Brady and Barbara Frank, co-founders of B&F Consulting. It is part of an ongoing series that provides ideas and solutions for retaining program staff.
There are multiple ways staff stability is essential to a program's success. "Staff stability is necessary to succeed in this performance business environment," the article states. "Healthcare payers and partners are increasingly focused on outcomes. Staff who work with the same residents and co-workers everyday can prevent avoidable declines. They recognize immediately when something’s wrong and can work together to address it."

- Reduce stress and improve morale
- Create daily stability
