When the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Inspector General (OIG) audited one of the nation’s largest not-for-profit senior health care providers a few years ago, its management team complied with federal auditors.
There was no reason to worry because this senior care organization did everything in its power to ensure the safety and well-being of its more than 20,000 workers and 25,000 patients.
The organization was aware of federal regulations that prohibit hiring sanctioned individuals and had dedicated personnel at each of its 240 U.S. facilities, checking every job candidate against the OIG List of Excluded Individuals/Entities (LEIE).
It even partnered with a background screening vendor to run criminal checks on all applicants.
