How does the Placement tab in the Caregiver profile relate to your Facilities? The Placement tab is an important piece for a few reasons. Placing a Caregiver at a Facility is a way to of indicating preference for that Caregiver, or if you staff physicians, a way to indicate privileges at a facility. Placement also impacts what jobs Caregivers can view in the Caregiver portal; some Facilities request only placed Caregivers.

The first thing to note is the setup on the Region level in Admin > Setup > Company Setup:

- If this box is checked, only those caregivers who are "Placed" in a certain Facility and/or Unit will be able to view any Shifts/Needs created in that Facility and/or Unit. If you do not select this box, all caregivers (in this Region) will be able to see any job relating to any Facility (assuming you let them log in).

NOTE: If you do not want this setting turned on for the entire region you can select it per facility instead:

- Notice the "Placement" tab within a Caregiver's profile. This is where you can add a Placement for a particular Caregiver. When adding a Placement, you can either choose the Facility (including all Units) or narrow it down to just a particular Unit. Once approved to work, check the Accepted checkbox.

- You will also notice a "Populate Facility/Unit Requirements to Required Docs" checkbox. When checked, the Caregiver's profile will now include the requirements for that Facility he/she has been placed. This will be notated in the "Specialty Required" column with the Caregiver's profile.

- The other area the "Placement" tab comes into play is during a Candidate Search.

- Upon performing a candidate search you will see a field called "Unit Approved". This is where we identify if this caregiver has been approved to work at this Facility by your agency. As mentioned above, Once "Placed" you have the ability to "Approve" that placement. If approved, this will be notated in the candidate search as shown below.

Things to note If you are utilizing the "Show open Shifts/Needs only to placed caregivers":

- Mobile App: If your Caregivers are using the mobile app to view available jobs, the Caregiver will only see the jobs that the Caregiver has been "Placed" in.

- Automatic job notifications: If you have set up your system to auto-notify your Caregivers of new Shifts and/or Needs, the "Placement" tab comes into play on what jobs will be sent to your caregivers.
