Who Helps the Helpers?
TaleMed places high importance on providing support to our traveling staff for any need that may arise. While a recruiter is always a phone call or text message away, sometimes assistance is needed by someone who has more experience directly in the industry. This is where the TaleMed Clinical team comes in.
Experienced Support When You Need It
The Clinical team’s number one priority is to support healthcare professionals (HCPs) leading up to and throughout their assignment – answering questions on clinical topics, listening, and talking through tough situations. Their ability to pull from their personal experiences and knowledge base provides an amazing support system to our healthcare professionals.
Susan Abbott joined the TaleMed family in 2017 as the Clinical Director and brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the table. “I have over 21 years of nursing experience, mostly spent in cardiology and electrophysiology. I had the privilege of serving as a Nurse Manager and Director of Nursing in Tennessee. I also worked as a Unit Clerk in an ICU unit, run on a life squad, worked in a hospital lab at a well-known university, and I’ve also worked at a busy pediatric clinic prior to attending nursing school.”
Corbin Sohn traveled for TaleMed as an emergency department nurse for four years prior to joining TaleMed full-time as the Clinical Liaison this spring. He is not only able to provide clinical support, but he is able to speak more specifically to the struggles that travel nurses sometimes feel. “It’s extremely important to have someone to talk with about the challenges of being a traveler. When I was on assignment, I always felt like I was part of the TaleMed community, and I want to help others feel the same way.”
Healthcare professionals are TaleMed’s top priority and we are committed to providing the resources they need. “We want to make sure our HCPs know that they are not alone in dealing with any potential questions or issues on the healthcare side,” Corbin says. “If they have any clinical concerns, big or small, we’re here to help.”
The Clinical team is available 24/7 to help with concerns such as:
- A newcomer to travel nursing, how can I make the transition smooth?
- I had a situation at my facility that I am unsure about.
- How can I best acclimate to a new facility?
- I am having a rough time on my assignment. What should I do?
- I have been asked to float, but I do not feel comfortable with floating.
