Frequently Asked Questions for Reducing Healthcare Violence with Client Guard
Yes, Client Guard scans publicly available information and no personal health information is exchanged or stored.
No, whether you decide to tell an individual that you have run a background check and what you have discovered is entirely up to you.
Client Guard is designed specifically for healthcare providers to ensure the safety of their employees. Unlike these other services, Client Guard uses up-to-the moment screening of data found in original data sources. Many other copies simply scan information purchased from another party, which means the information may be up to a month old and often passes through an entity that is not the original source.
Your strategies for reducing healthcare violence will depend on the potential threat level, the setting and your risk mitigation and safety plan. Many healthcare providers will take steps such as ensuring workers are not on-site alone. Other steps may include having the worker carry a panic button, tracking app and/or phone with direct 911 connection. In some instances, having the worker accompanied by security personnel may be the right course of action for reducing healthcare violence risk.
Client Guard scans for security risks, provides instant insights and is low cost for easy use across your patient populations. Employee checks will often verify employment and education in addition to or instead of security scanning and can take weeks for processing at high cost.
Client Guard can be set up with different user accounts, so you can track who is performing background checks and when.
