And often concurrently, strategies for the re-opening of operating rooms and surgery centers for elective procedures.
Having a steady partner during times of uncertainty is essential. As experts in crisis management, Fastaff is a pioneer and industry leader in Rapid Response travel nursing. Fastaff sends experienced, critical care RNs in ten days or less during emergencies.
