Locum tenens work is all about caring for patients at varied and often distant locations. Physicians arrive at a new hospital or clinic, alone or with their families, to provide medical care for a proscribed period of time. I've written about travel tips in Chapter 18 of my book, "The Locum Life: A Physician's Guide to Locum Tenens," for physicians on the road. But what about the home front?
In this article published on the CompHealth blog, I address home security, snail mail, and the importance of a reliable person who can keep your home looking "lived-in" and care for lonely pets. If you are a locum tenens physician or interested in trying this approach to patient care, please check it out! Your feedback is appreciated. Thank you.
