With states like New York looking to toughen up its oversight on nurses and healthcare workers, Corra Group is targeting the healthcare industry with a series of background checks that will enable its clients to meet evolving compliance standards. The El Segundo, California based employment screening company will expand its services to hospitals and medical staffing agencies by offering special employment screening packages that are customized to the needs of any medical group.
“The recent article on the June 15th, 2016 Pro Publica site addresses how New York is closing the holes in its system for licensing and disciplining nurses,” said Corra Group Co-Founder, Gordon Basichis. “But New York is hardly alone in confronting the disciplinary actions and criminal records among its pool of nurse and other healthcare personnel. It is a serious situation when you are allowing employees with questionable backgrounds to work in the medical and healthcare industry where they are often dealing with the underage or elderly, or people in general in a vulnerable state.
“Corra Group will be expanding its consultancy to apprise clients of the special needs related to the healthcare industry,” said Corra Group Co-Founder, Gordon Basichis. “Based on client input, we will then create specific packages that will target the evolving compliance standards for medical groups, hospitals, and staffing and recruiting agencies. We have been working this space for over a decade and as changes occur we are designing our packages to be flexible in meeting any standards.”
Basichis pointed out that Corra Group offers a full spectrum of healthcare background checks, including civil and criminal records, education and employment verification and several types of healthcare sanctions searches, including the FACIS Level Three, the industry standard. He noted the company offers healthcare related monitoring services that will automatically keep track on a monthly basis of any disciplinary actions or exclusions levied at an employee.
