Maintaining proper staffing levels, and keeping them trained and up to date with practices, is one of the biggest challenges faced by many therapy services departments. This is especially true for smaller hospitals located in remote or rural areas, such as the many critical access hospitals across the United States. Finding therapists with the right qualifications and experience, not to mention the right approach to patient care, can help your facility meet its patient care goals and improve overall experience, but it can be difficult to know where to start.
An independent contractor physical therapy provider is a solution that many hospitals turn to that offers some unique benefits from both an operational and patient care standpoint. To help you understand how contract physical therapy can work for you, read this overview of benefits.
