Case Study


During the COVID-19 pandemic, a Critical Access Hospital in Sierra Nevada California, faced a significant staffing crisis and required nurse staff training to implement proper state and federal regulations in response to COVID-19. This led to a dire need for leadership.


In just 3 weeks, Epic Specialty Staffing provided an interim leader for this rural hospital; a highly qualified, Critical Access Hospital-experienced Director of Nursing. During a 6-month contract, this leader implemented a new training system for the nursing staff with regulated COVID-19 pandemic protocols and procedures. This interim leader then prepared the hospital for CMS survey readiness and employee and physician engagement for quality patient care.


• Clients saw dramatic improvement in staff morale from interim interaction.
• Excellent CMS survey results with the help of interim leadership.
• Improved patient satisfaction.
• Provided leadership during severe staffing shortages brought on by COVID-19.

“Epic Specialty Staffing Provided An Excellent Interim For Our Facility!”

“Epic Specialty Staffing provided an excellent interim for our facility with Martha G. As the interim DON of LTC, Martha worked quickly with our staff regarding preparation for our upcoming CMS survey all the while dealing with the sudden and significant impact Covid-19 brought on our community. She also helped with our process of bringing on our new permanent DON and made sure for a smooth transition of leadership.”
