Healthcare Background Checks

Because the lives of patients are literally in their hands, healthcare, health services and assisted-living firms require particular diligence in their hiring practices. The Healthcare Screening Solutions offer two levels of configuration to facilitate speedy, informed new hire decisions by accessing criminal, sex offender, employment, professional and financial records across the nation. Basic provides thorough screening for general employment purposes. The Professional level includes additional searches for professional hiring needs.
