At a time when nursing home inspections reveal poor quality control measures and negligent hiring lawsuits and elder abuse reports are on the rise, in-home care industry leader Homewatch CareGivers, after careful review of 10 national background screening companies, selected Affordable Searches as its new national background check partner. Affordable Searches conducts multi-jurisdictional background searches across the U.S., including the 50-state sexual offender database, the federal criminal database (PACER) and motor vehicle databases for all caregivers providing client transportation.

Noting the significance of this new partnership, President Leann Reynolds said, “These valuable searches are conducted on not only all new applicants but on all caregiver and employee hires system-wide each year. All names connected with Social Security numbers are checked along with county criminal searches. These real time county searches are done manually, line item by line item, and include all counties the person has lived in for the past seven to 10 years. We’re confident our security measures are the highest industry standard and we believe, just as the auditor for the Texas Department of Disability and Aging services said, that Affordable Searches provides the most complete background screening for home health agencies.”
