Portland, Ore. - As a leading provider of nurse staffing in Portland, OR, Express Healthcare is anticipating a greater need for healthcare staffing due to the recent developments in the flu virus strain. Express Healthcare Professionals of Portland, OR, is one of the top full-service nursing agencies that progressively surpasses expectations by placing clinical staff in per diem and contract positions throughout the Greater Portland area and across the nation.
Clinical Director for Express Healthcare Professionals Christina Muniz stated, “We are taking precautions internally to ensure that we remain healthy throughout this flu season. We know the flu can be deadly, and we want to help prevent the transmission of the virus within our community.”
New studies have emerged suggesting 2018 to possibly be one of the most severe flu seasons on record. Health officials from the Center for Disease Control have warned that this year’s flu vaccine may only be 10% effective. According to the C.D.C., more than 7,000 cases of influenza have been confirmed in the U.S. so far, which is more than double the number this time last year.
“The flu this year has already shown that it is hitting our community harder than in years past. Our staff is prepared to help fill the last minute needs hospitals may have due to an increase in census or to the hospital staff calling out sick due to having the flu themselves,” said Muniz.
Experts recommend still getting a flu shot as a preventative measure as it does provide protection against several strains of the virus. Nursing agencies in Portland, OR, are anticipating a busy new year, but they take seriously the responsibility they have to their local community.
The Express Healthcare office is located at 7401 SW Washo Ct #101, Tualatin, OR 97062 and serves the Portland, Clackamas, Wilsonville, West Linn, Lake Oswego, Gresham, Beaverton, Tigard, and surrounding areas.
