LOS ANGELES, Aug. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Hospital Association of Southern California (HASC) and Hospital Council – Northern & Central California (Hospital Council) have exclusively endorsed Accurate Background, an Irvine, CA-based leading provider of compliant background checks, drug and health screening and Form I-9 verifications, for employment screening services. The endorsement provides member hospitals with a comprehensive portfolio of employment screening, verifications and compliance tools.
The health and safety of hospital staff and patients is of the utmost importance. Background checks help identify the most qualified candidates for open hospital positions, as well as surface potential threats by an individual's criminal history. Comprehensive background checks by Accurate can help identify risks in the hiring or rescreening process, as they can create liability issues for hospitals and medical facilities.
After a comprehensive review of background screening companies, HASC and Hospital Council jointly awarded endorsement to Accurate to help hospitals mitigate risk in their hiring process.
"Protecting the health and safety of patients and our workforce is key and it is important that we standardize the background check process with an experienced partner like Accurate so we can hire the most qualified applicants," said George W. Greene, President/CEO, HASC. "Comprehensive background screening helps hospitals meet regulatory compliance efforts, such as ensuring that applicants are fully evaluated and further our goal of patient and employee safety."
