At one time or another, every American requires healthcare—whether it’s an annual check up with the family doctor, or an unplanned visit to the emergency room.
Little wonder, then, that pre-employment screening for hospitals—and other healthcare employees—are a critical component of ensuring that the healthcare professionals who interact with patients are both reliable and trustworthy.
PeopleFacts is experienced in the field of hospital background checks, and our professionals are fully trained to ensure that those hired in the healthcare sector meet the stringent legal requirements established for healthcare professionals. In addition to background screening for hospitals, it’s also important to note that the vast majority of states also require background checks for home health agencies; that’s a logical position, given the access that employees of such agencies are given when providing home-based health assistance.
Given the size and scope of America’s healthcare industry, it’s not surprising that there are an abundance of complex regulations governing employment within this critical business sector. After all, in addition to having physical access to the patients, many employees in the healthcare industry also have access to some of Americans’ most critically important—and private—information.
