Background Checks for Healthcare
We assist hospitals, nursing facilities, assisted living communities and healthcare staffing firms with meeting their unique hiring needs. This includes proprietary healthcare screening solutions built around industry best practices and HIPAA standards. This enables you to meet compliance requirements, remain protected from liability, and gain the best ROI from your employment screening program.
Overview of Our Healthcare Employment Screening Services
We recommend comprehensive background checks be conducted on all your employees, including those in entry-level and temporary staff positions. This would include a search of county, state and national database records. Candidates should also be screened with sex offender registries.
We also offer the option to search the federal exclusion databases for people excluded from participation in Federal healthcare programs. This includes searching databases such as the Office of the Inspector General (OIG/GSA).
Verification services are the next phase of the screening process that we recommend. We offer various verification services, but hospitals and medical centers should especially consider verifying professional licenses and certifications, education, and employment history. These verifications ensure you can provide the best possible care to your patients.

Healthcare Sanctions Report (HSR)
It is against the law for any healthcare organization to employ or work with anyone who has been sanctioned. We use FACIS®, the industry’s most comprehensive historical database of adverse actions, to ensure your professionals are in good standing. Learn more on our healthcare sanctions page.
