Occupational Background Screening
As the Baby Boomer generation ages, the number of healthcare professionals required to provide their healthcare and related services is increasing. As an employer in the healthcare industry, it is important that you avoid hiring candidates that could pose any type of danger to your patients, who already are vulnerable to abuse by caregivers.
Crimcheck offers a full range of Occupational Services to help you in evaluating potential job candidates, as well as maintaining a safe environment in your workplace.
Titers and Vaccinations
Our Occupational Services also include titers and vaccinations, if necessary. A titer determines the number of antibodies in a person’s blood, and their immunity to a specific disease. If there is an insufficient number of antibodies, vaccination is required.
TB testing is required for most healthcare workers, as TB can be a communicable disease, which can run rampant through a population with weak immune systems, such as in a hospital, nursing home or assisted living facility. Although TB is preventable, treatable and curable, without getting proper treatment, two-thirds of those who contract it will die.
Physical Ability Testing
Lifting patients, pushing wheelchairs, maneuvering gurneys, and unpacking/storing supplies are all common tasks performed by healthcare workers. It is important that you are aware of the physical capabilities of your workers, so that you can assign them to jobs that they have the physical capacity to perform without injuring themselves.
An audiological evaluation can be critical for healthcare workers, who have to depend on their sense of hearing to listen to patients, receive and execute medical instructions relative to patient care, and perform auscultation assessments where the sounds made by a patient’s internal organs are listened to and used to diagnose various conditions. Undiagnosed and treated hearing loss can negatively affect patient care and safety.
Crimcheck facilitates the management of your Occupational Screening by providing a portal for submitting data, monitoring progress and receiving reports. Crimcheck also provides SanctionsCheck™ which is our comprehensive database identifying individuals who are excluded from participation in federal and state healthcare programs, such as Medicare and Medicaid.
Coupled with our “Real People” Team of Experts who are available to answer questions and tailor your Occupational Screening program, Crimcheck provides a clear advantage that can help protect your brand, your employees and your patients.
