The answer is simple! In today’s highly competitive landscape, hospitals and healthcare institutions at large are placing a special focus on hiring exceptionally talented people, whether they be doctors, nurses, technicians, anesthetists, administrative staff and so on. Recognizing this, an increasing number of underqualified and dishonest individuals have been going to great lengths to embellish or even forge their academic credentials or professional experiences in order to unethically stand out from the crowd.
The most concerning part of this phenomenon is that in a critical sector such as healthcare where ethics, skill and experience hold higher significance, the potential repercussions of malpractice could be deadly. Of course, not to mention the fact that genuine medical practitioners who have put in years of dedication and hard work are being swiftly replaced by impostors who are unrightfully nabbing these vacancies, nor the possible financial, regulatory and reputational implications incurred by healthcare organizations falling prey to such deception.
This being said, detecting false credentials – regardless of their nature – can be a very tricky and complex affair, which prompted the introduction of Primary Source Verification or PSV. In a nutshell, PSV is an advanced screening procedure that involves gathering information directly from the issuing source to ensure maximum accuracy and eliminate any possibility of hiring scammers.
