CEO Message - We need You!
Written on the 24 July 2020 by Caring For You Nursing Agency
To our very special Caring for You Members,
We Need You!
Many of you would have viewed the message I sent out some weeks ago, just after the COVID-19 global pandemic impacted Australia.
As our clients restricted the use of agency staff, by having their own teams work back-to-back shifts and cancelling their leave, this in turn, saw our client booking requests drop dramatically.The tide has turned. There is important work to be done and its never been more important to be good at what we do.
We are now closely partnering with Department of Health and Human Services, to support the front-line battle against this pandemic which is impacting all our lives.
Many of you are working tirelessly throughout this crisis and I am extremely grateful for the commitment and support to your community and to Caring for You.
I am now appealing for your help to combat this invisible battle in Victoria which is far from over.
We need you now! Our community is looking to us now for guidance and support. There has never been a better opportunity to use your training and expertise to make a difference.
We have no precedent for the current situation. We can assure you, your safety is our number one priority. We are liaising with all facilities daily, to ensure that full and correct PPE is available, to protect the safety of our members.
In the event you have any concerns, either before accepting a shift, during a shift or after you have completed a shift, our Registered Nurse Lead COVID Response Team are available to speak with you 24/7.
If you are willingly to take on this battle with us, please give us your availability now.
Our Allocations Team are working so hard and overwhelmed by hospitals and aged care homes pleading for staff and that means you!
I trust, I hope, I believe that many more of you, even if you haven't worked for a while, will answer my plea, accept shifts and join our health care heroes who need you on board to support them.
