Healthcare and Hospitals Background Checks

Background Checks

State and federal healthcare regulations often require employers to request healthcare background checks during the pre-employment phase. Failure to comply could result in costly penalties and impacts on professional licensing. For example, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act requires participating states to establish a pre-employment healthcare background check program for nursing facilities, hospice settings, and home health agency applicants and employees.

No matter what regulations your division of healthcare may face, healthcare background checks are a powerful tool that can mitigate workplace safety and patient well-being concerns. Health Street's detailed background screening services can not only help employers assess criminal history to determine position eligibility, but also verify applicant resumes to ensure applicant education, certification, and previous experience details are accurate and up to par.

Healthcare and Hospitals Drug Test Services

Drug Tests

Along with pre-employment background screening requirements, certain healthcare professionals may also be subject to drug screening regulations. Healthcare and hospital drug screening for employment purposes helps pre-determine any underlying workplace safety concerns associated with medical staff and the risk of substance abuse.

With the negative impacts employee drug use can have on staff and patient well-being, it's paramount to use a drug screening service that can tackle your every need. This can include not only pre-hire drug screening but also random and reasonable suspicion drug testing if required by your healthcare workplace drug testing policy and regulations.
