• Running Annual Background Checks on Employees

    Monday December 1, 2014

    Recently, the Gallagher Risk Management Services Claims Department has seen an increase in allegations relating to a facility's negligent hiring, training, and supervision of its employees.  Claims relating to the hiring, training, and supervision of employees are often tied to incidents where an employee of a facility has been accused of abuse / neglect of a resident and terminated.  While there is no requirement to perform intermittent background checks, running a background check once a year for every employee could potentially reduce the likelihood that a facility may be susceptible to a claim of negligent hiring, training, and supervision.  Bullet Screening Services provides comprehensive employment screening services.  Through a partnership with Bullet Screening Services, ALTC's clients are able to purchase discounted special employment screening packages, including a $7.00 per employee charge for a background check.  The investment of performing an annual background check on each employee would be an investment in quality control for residents and possibly reduce the significance of a claim for negligent hiring, training, and supervision. You can learn more about the services that Bullet Screening Services provides tor the Senior Care Industry by going to their website at www.bulletscreening.com or calling them at 205-823-5551.
