Unlike other industries, healthcare is unique in that the demand for contingent work is steadily rising. As the American population continues to age and the need for registered nurses, LPNs and assisted living aides grows, hospitals and other facilities are finding that they must increase their staffing efforts in order to keep up with the increasing workload. Consequently, more and more hospitals and other healthcare facilities are turning to contingent work as a way to meet patients’ care needs and expectations.
