Health Care Provider Employment Screening
Employment Background Checks in hospitals, nursing homes, home health care providers, non-profit agencies, and other organizations within the healthcare industry must meet strict requirements. Medical field Employers face a unique set of requirements and liabilities. Absolute Background Search, Inc., works with both large and small Healthcare Companies to reduce both liability and time to perform a proper Employment Background Check.
Inadequate or poorly conducted background checks
Many health providers find themselves the target of litigation for the actions of employees on whom they failed to conduct a thorough criminal record background check. A proper background check for employees in the health care or assisted living industry must include a check of the Sex Offender Registry in all 50 states, a check of Medical Fraud OIG Sanctions, as well as a check of criminal records at local, state and federal jurisdictions. The civil courts have continuously held that simply not knowing about a criminal record is not a defense. If the record would have been discovered in thorough background check, then it is assumed that the employer should have been aware of it.
Background Check Foundation
The foundation of a quality medical provider employment screening background check is our Smart Search Plus®.
