As a manager at a medical facility, it’s your job to create weekly work schedules for a wide range of staff members—doctors, nurses, LNA, medical assistants, pharmacists, and so many more. You take your job very seriously, always attempting to meet the staff’s requests for time off, vacations, and preferred shifts. This is a daunting task all by itself, but with so many staff members to coordinate, and so many requests that’s not the entire challenge.

Things get more interesting when a staff member can’t come to work because of illness, a family emergency, dead battery in the car, or any number of reasons. You have to scramble to find a replacement for that employee—and do it fast!

Now let’s consider what happens when it’s not just one staff member in one department calling in sick, but one or more staff members in every department across your medical facility, and during cold and flu season, this is not an unusual occurrence. The result is a scheduling nightmare, and worse, not enough staff on duty to care for patients.

A proven way to resolve all these problems is using secure online scheduling software that empowers staff members to find their own replacements instead of you. By storing all employee names, departments, phone numbers, and email addresses in the cloud—which offers 24×7 access by an internet-enabled device—every staff member has the power to find a replacement when necessary. And don’t worry—you don’t have to wait for this advanced solution, you can get it today from WhatTimeDoIWork.com!

Here’s how it works.

  • You start by entering your staff members’ names & departments, and then your employees can enter their contact information & preferred shifts, all in a single cloud-based location that you can access 24×7.
  • Then, you create weekly schedules with easy-to-use web-based software.
  • Once you complete a schedule, you post it to the secure cloud and it‘s sent to all the staff members’ phones or emails in a single click.
  • When illness or emergency occurs, a staff member can pull up the current schedule, see at a glance who is available for work, and find his/her own replacement. It’s just that easy.

With an online schedule solution, the hours you save updating schedules and looking for replacements can be put to much better use doing what your organization does best—care for patients!
