    Top 3 Frequently Asked Questions

    - What do we do if we do not run a background check or drug screen on our students?
    A background check and drug screen are required by Kindred Healthcare in order to complete a clinical education placement in our facilities. The student will be responsible for obtaining and providing proof of passed completion prior to the start of their placement.

    - What is a OIG/GSA search?
    Specific to the healthcare field and employers with government contracts, the Office of Inspector General?s (OIG) and Government Services Administration (GSA) reports a list of Excluded Individuals/Entities in a database of those persons or companies barred from participating in any federally-funded healthcare programs. A search for the student through this database is required.

    - Faculty are not able to hold these records on file or attest to these records for our college/university. What should I do?
    If the school faculty coordinator is unable to provide the information during the registration due to college/university policy, comments should be made in the comment section and the student must provide copies of all documents directly to the student program manager for their college/university prior to the start of the clinical internship.
