If you are a talent acquisition professional in the healthcare industry, you know how important healthcare background checks are in the hiring process.
A healthcare background check includes all the same components of a professional background check with added components that search for any healthcare sanctions. This type of information is critical to ensuring your candidates have not been sanctioned by any professional standards boards.
Healthcare sanction information is a critical component of a background check for medical professionals. Sanction data can come from federal sources, state-level databases, and third-party aggregators of information.
All of this data will provide an employer with any details about sanctions on a potential job candidate. These types of reports typically come in three levels:
Every background screening in the healthcare industry absolutely needs these sanctions searches to protect this especially sensitive workplace. These types of searches are essential for maintaining compliance, accreditation with certification progress, and participating in federal and state health programs.
In addition to healthcare background checks, the following components are also frequently as part of a healthcare background check.
Please note, not all of the above components are required for every type of position. For example, a hospital food service worker does not need a professional license or motor vehicle records search. The specific job position may also require occupational health services, such as physicals, titers, and vaccines.
Your background check provider should have a partnership that can include these types of services in the background check process to help deliver a smooth onboarding experience for your candidates.
