Locum Tenens Statistics

Save Time and Money

by Utilizing a Locum Tenens Provider

Hiring a locum tenens provider could save your facility $300,000 in expenses depending on your facility's location! When you hire a permanent provider, you are forced to pay additional expenses on top of their salary. Some of these expenses include, but are not limited to:

    • Benefits
    • Signing bonuses
    • Health insurance
    • Relocation fees

    Not to mention the hiring process for a full-time provider takes longer than that of a locum. This means while you are candidate searching, you are costing your facility money via gaps in patient care, interrupted work flow, low employee morale, and cost of lost referrals.

    Skills that Make Up a Good Locum

    How to identify a quality healthcare provider

    Locum providers bring a level of flexibility to your facility that you cannot always find in a full-time provider. Here are some characteristics that make up an ideal locum tenens provider:

    • Willingness to travel
    • Locum tenens knowledge/experience
    • Openness to new environments
    • Excellent bedside manor
    • Caring and compassionate behavior
    • Attention to detail and excellent leadership skills
