    The fact that every state is not requiring these types businesses to run thorough background checks on nursing home employees is outrageous. This is especially unacceptable considering the number of respected companies, such as Proforma Screening Solutions, that offer affordable and comprehensive criminal background checks:

    I agree that every state should be held to the same standard. More than likely the reason some states haven't adopted the requirement to have all nursing home facilities and home health care providers have their employees run criminal background checks, is financial. They may believe it will bring hardship on a struggling industry. The financial burden, should something happen in their state and to each individual elderly care business, would be far greater. Not just the litigation costs, but the abuse that could have been avoided, has to be a priceless dividend. There are many database service companies that can help this industry. Besides Proforma other well respected companies like which also provide these types of background checks within their web portal or with custom API solutions. Identity verification should no longer be an option especially in an industry that cares for our elderly.
