Q: What is the screening process?
Each employee is meticulously screened for the following: personal ethics, educational background, business and personal background, past employment history, special training and certification verification, state criminal history clearance, state driving background checks, automobile proof of insurance, social security identification, proof of citizenship and test negative for tuberculosis (TB).
Q: Are the company caregivers covered by state worker’s compensation?
Again, companies who contract work to independent caregivers do not have to pay into a state worker’s compensation fund. Then who does? If a caregiver were injured on the job, whose insurance would cover the medical expenses? Would the client or their estate be liable to pay for a caregiver’s injury? Angels of Mercy Private Homecare Services hires caregivers as employees to protect the client and the caregiver by paying into the employee’s workman compensation fund.
Q: Is the company and caregiver fully bonded and insured under the corporate liability policy?
Your loved one’s safety and security is first. It is in your best interest to choose a company and employees that are bonded and insured under a corporate liability policy. All of the employees are fully bonded and insured under the corporate liability policy.
