Operational Flexibility

Fastaff’s one-of-a-kind guaranteed delivery enables operational flexibility and lowers total cost. Here’s how:

Flexible-length Assignments

Unlike the fixed 13-week assignments common to traditional travel agencies, Fastaff’s flexible-length assignments allow hospitals to order quality nurses just for the time needed and cancel at any time, lowering total cost.

Schedule Fastaff nurses for as little as two-weeks or for long-term projects, such as EMR conversions.  Our flexible-length assignment model saves you time and money, while optimizing utilization of nurses who meet your highest quality expectations.

48-hour Workweeks

Increasing utilization while improving patient experience can be achieved with Fastaff’s 48-hour workweeks. Our nurses provide additional patient care hours for no overtime expenses to the facility, up to 48-hours a week. Our 48-hour workweek model allows for fewer travel nurses, saving additional costs for unnecessary staffing. Accomplish your patient care goals with these benefits of 48-hour workweeks:

  • Curb staff overtime expenses
  • Improve the patient’s experience by receiving care from the same nurse throughout the week
  • Less nurses to interview and onboard
  • Save time with less nurses to credential

Option to Cancel with No Penalties

With more than 25 years of experience in delivering quality nurse staffing, we know your needs change. Our unique model allows clients to cancel with a four-shift notice and no penalty fees. Unlike traditional travel agencies where terms may be non-cancellable or require unreasonable fees, we offer the flexibility to scale down nurse capacity for no extra cost. Fastaff offers operational flexibility to accommodate planned and unplanned census changes, including vacation schedules, medical leaves, seasonal variances, etc.

Additional Services

Fastaff also provides operational flexibility during EMR conversion staffing and through Fastaff Approval, our expedited interviewing and hiring process.
