Our recent Staffing Quality Survey revealed there are still healthcare staffing organizations with facility clients mandating an 80% passing score on clinical competency exams. Using arbitrary pass/fail cutoff scores, such as 80%, without being able to demonstrate it’s validity, results in the inability to defend such score in discriminatory litigation or audit under the OFCCP. Here are 4 proven ways to adopt the legal pass/fail scores organization-wide.
Key to all infection control is consistent and meticulous implementation, practice and training. We believe this starts with education, and for this reason are offering all Prophecy clients the “Ebola: Communicable Disease Preparedness” education module free of charge for the next 30 days.
As revealed in the full press release today, evidence from our Staffing Quality Survey conducted last month showed clinical competency testing, on its own, falls short of predicting job performance, leaving key performance flaws undetected. The survey produces actionable data helping agencies generate the best presentation of candidates during a time when nurses play a key role in facility reimbursements.
Soon after news of the domestic case of Ebola, our agency clients began requesting a travel screening form that could be used with employees. We’ve developed a Travel Screening document and are more than willing to customize for, and send to, your organization, regardless of whether you are a current Prophecy Client, or not.
Seems like an easy question to answer, right?! To be quite honest, for us, it wasn’t. When exploring the idea of offering practice tests, a lot of what if’s came to mind.
