Privileges/Affiliation/Work History - Verification at other Healthcare Organizations

Are organizations required to verify a physician's or dentist's affiliations at other health care organizations, and if yes, for how many years back must the verifications be done?

Any examples are for illustrative purposes only.

There is no standard requirement to verify hospital/other healthcare organization affiliations, clinical responsibilities, or work history for any applicant. Standard HRM.01.02.01 EP 6 does require the following information to make decision about hiring and assigning staff duties and responsibilities:
  • Verified licensure, certification, or registration required by law or regulation and organization policy
  • Verified education and experience Results of criminal background check(s), in accordance with law and regulation and organization policy
  • Outcomes of applicable health screenings and staff member's health statement, in accordance with law and regulation and organization policy
  • Any challenges to licensure or registration
  • Voluntary or involuntary limitation of license or registration
  • Voluntary or involuntary limitation, reduction, or loss of clinical responsibilities
  • Professional liability actions that resulted in a final judgment against the staff member
