Duty to Promote Patient and Employee Safety

The risks of hiring an individual with a criminal history is high for any organization but are especially high for healthcare organizations. Laborchex’s health care background screening solutions help verify whether a health care service provider, employee, or volunteer has a criminal or sex offender history.
Laborchex has a long history of serving the healthcare industry.

Our clients include hospitals, nursing homes, and home care agencies. Our health care employment background screening solutions include background checks on all types of physicians (including primary care physicians, specialists, and surgeons), registered nurses, nursing assistants, home health aides, medical records technicians, pharmacy technicians, paramedics, and occupational and physical therapists. Our healthcare background checks can also be used to screen volunteers within health care organizations.

Laborchex’s employment screening services include federal, county and state criminal background checks, a national criminal background check, sex offender checks, and a social security number verification and address history trace. We understand that health care organizations have a duty to promote patient and employee safety. We pride ourselves on providing healthcare background check solutions that are comprehensive, fast, and secure. Our goal is to help protect health care organizations against the risks of hiring an individual with a criminal history.
