Allied Health & Rehab Therapy
So what exactly is Allied Health? At its simplest definition, Allied Health refers to “health professions that are distinct from medicine and nursing.” This means that for healthcare professionals and providers who work mainly with certain specialities outside of the medicinal sphere, Allied Health is an umbrella term for all they do and more.
To get a bit more in depth, we must also note that it includes a large, broad spectrum of health professionals who rely on scientific principles and evidence-based practices to come to diagnoses, treatment, and overall valuation for patients with chronic diseases and conditions. With this approach, allied health professionals work to promote disease prevention and overall health and wellness using different administration and management skills that work in a number of settings. Some allied health professionals include the following professions (some well-known, others obscure to the public) you may not have known fell under this umbrella:
- Speech and Language Pathologists
- Physical Therapists
- Cytogenetic Technologists,
- Imaging Specialists
Other professionals whose positions fall under allied health that are certainly recognizable whether one is in the industry or not include:
- Dental Hygienists
- Dental Assistants
- EMTs and Paramedics
- Athletic Therapists
- Health Educators
By including Allied Health professional resources and care with Healthcare Pros services, per diem and travel nurses are open to even more help than before. For a full list of who falls under the allied health spectrum, go here.
Allied Health & Rehab Professionals working with Healthcare Pros are offered a number of benefits that can help make their job a little easier. When you team up with Healthcare Pros, you are privy to the following:
Housing Stipends and Industry-Best Pay Rates
Most of the time, your staffing agency should be providing funds for housing. This is part of what makes travel healthcare so attractive – you’re able to live in cities where the cost of living is rather expensive without having to pay out of pocket. However, some patient care providers are expected to take care of their own living expenses when traveling, making this benefit an important and rather necessary one. What’s more, your staffing agency also finds you the best pay rates in the industry, offering your stability for other expenses like groceries, clothing, toiletries, and more.
Paid Sick Leave
When a healthcare professional gets sick on the job, it can be very frightening. Since you are in a position for such a short amount of time, you may worry that if you don’t work, you don’t get paid. Healthcare Pros abolishes this fear by providing paid sick leave for their nurses so that even when they can’t do their work, they still have some stability.
Another great feature and benefit of working with Healthcare Pros is the direct deposit option. Since you are working in a different city from where you live, relying on checks to cash can be inconvenient. While apps can help you deposit money from checks into your account, this can be time-consuming in its own right. Healthcare Pros gives you the option of a direct deposit. When funds are able to go directly into your account without worry or fuss, it makes things much easier for you and the clinic or hospital you work with.
401k Retirement Plan
With Healthcare Pros, you also never have to worry about a retirement plan. Again, this is often a perk that comes with working with a single hospital or healthcare facility, which could leave some travel nurses feeling they are lacking in an important part of work life. Fortunately, Healthcare Pros offers 401k retirement plans for their nurses, giving the security needed for those both with families and without.
