Webinar

Written By ESR News Blog Editor Thomas Ahearn

Attorney Lester Rosen, founder and chief executive officer (CEO) of leading global background check firm Employment Screening Resources® (ESR), and Dawn Standerwick, ESR Vice President of Strategic Growth, will present a live webinar titled “Update to Health Care Background Screening and How to Reduce Hiring Risk” on Wednesday, May 5, 2021, from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Pacific Time / 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Eastern Time.

The webinar – hosted by Lorman Education Services – will provide attendees with a better understanding of background checks for health care organizations that have employees who work with patients and interact with medical records. Any health care professional knows there can be dire consequences if a patient is harmed, either because an employee was unsuitable or did not have the credentials claimed or privacy is compromised.

  • Attendees will be able to define negligent hiring and how it applies to healthcare organizations.
  • Attendees will be able to describe best practices for background screening for healthcare positions.
  • Attendees will be able to recognize if there are deficiencies in their hiring practices that place your healthcare organization at risk.
  • Attendees will be able to review their organizational practices to ensure that they are taking appropriate measures to practice due diligence in hiring.
