Flu Season Is Here!
Make sure to get your flu shot ASAP to keep working
In order to stay compliant with the demands of most area hospitals, schools, surgery centers, and other clients, we urge our staff to get your flu shot as soon as possible. The majority of clients are requiring current staff to have their shot no later than October 31st. And new staff must have their shot before they can start their assignment. If you work at a Medstar facility, a flu shot is mandatory. If you do not want a flu shot, please call our office to see if your current employer requires one. Check your local pharmacies and doctors' offices to get your shot - they should be available now!
So Long Sweet Summer

Check out all the photos. Special thanks again to the CMS administrative team for their help making the evening a great success.

NAMI Recognizes Chesapeake Medical Staffing
A Big Donation for a Big Cause!
"Chesapeake Medical Staffing, the employer of team Klass walker & Dave Myers, GENEROUSLY donated their nearly new, gently used office furniture (VALUED AT OVER $20,000) to NAMI Maryland!! Not only did they donate the furniture -- they moved, loaded, hauled, and unloaded the goods for us. This is grassroots work at it's best - Matt, Dave, and Jeff, we cannot thank you enough." - NAMI Representative.
