Better Manage Vacation Season with Temporary Pharmacists

Summer is approaching, and for many healthcare organizations, that means vacation time for employees, including pharmacists. Planning for vacations can put a squeeze on scheduling, and possibly a little scrambling to fill some empty slots.


One way to handle vacations is by using a staffing service to provide temporary pharmacists. If you use Rx relief®, you can be assured that the pharmacists provided are the best at what they do, competent and reliable.


We have designed our services to blend in with the needs of your organization, reducing costs and improving your performance. Rx relief® has a database of more than 15,000 pharmacists and technicians. About 500 are usually on assignment at any given time.


We accept and place only the best pharmacy professionals, people who can move into any situation, however difficult, and people who can work with a team or by themselves. We consider ourselves a partner, not a vendor, providing pharmacists that fit in with your organization’s culture and needs. Before placing anyone, our staffing managers take the time to learn about your organization. We do so because it not only shows how we value your organization, but because it respects our pharmacists as well. We also want to make sure we get the right fit for both.


The staffing industry has recognized our efforts by awarding us our industry’s highest honor, the Best of Staffing award. The Best of Staffing award is reserved for the top performing firms. Fewer than 1 percent of all staffing firms in North America receive it.


Rx relief® provides all of its pharmacists with liability insurance and workers’ compensation. We also handle payroll taxes and provide all benefits.


Our recruiters screen all of the people we hire in 14 different areas, including annual performance reviews, annual credential verifications, background checks, competency examinations, drug screening, incident investigation, license verification, personal interviews, and reference checks.


Rx relief® has placed pharmacists in every type of position, including clinical and specialty positions, compounding; we’ve placed them with county and municipal governments, the VA, hospitals, retail pharmacies, and more. We’ve placed pharmacy directors, those pharmacists with hospital inpatient and outpatient experience, in long-term and managed care, and more.


So, if summer vacations are presenting you with a problem, fill your temporary vacancies with pharmacists from Rx relief®. You can rest easy knowing that we have a proven track record of success, providing the highest quality professionals. Contact us today.
