Staff in more than one facility
Hi - I manage two teams of CDS - 1 team from an AMC with 12 CDS and 1 team from a community hospital with 2 CDS. The community hospital is a part of our health system and the two CDS there are employees of the community hospital. One of the two CDS from the community hospital is retiring and we are changing the paymaster so the new CDS will be hired by the AMC as this allows to hire remotely, hence a much larger pool of applicants and hopefully someone with experience as well as looking ahead to being able to provide coverage when one of the CDS is on vacation. My question is do any of you have experience with this? If so do you have separate teams for each hospital or do you combine the teams and CDS members do reviews for both hospitals? Do you provide vacation coverage when needed?
