I have three leadership positions open in my facility and I just can't seem to find what I am looking for. Any suggestions?

We have just had a run of very bad weather and, as usual, I had several nursing staff call off work. Department heads are never encouraged to come in and help us out. Do you have any suggestions on how to help staff to understand that we are a 24-hour facility, even in bad weather?
