Performing background checks – the easiest, most effective way to ensure new hires.November 19, 2014 by Vickie Anenberg

Background checks are a critical element of the onboarding process for any potential new hires. Such checks can help a healthcare facility gain assurance that it's hiring professionals who are not only skilled and qualified, but law-abiding and ethical as well.

Across the country, states have enacted - or are contemplating - regulations to require home healthcare workers to submit to rigorous background screening. In addition to being properly licensed and credentialed, every healthcare facility staff member is required to submit to background checks in every state in the country. How effective and simple is your screening process? How confident are you in the results?
