Do Fair Hiring Practices Mean Something Different to Healthcare Employers?

A nurse with a drug addiction was charged with stealing Propofol from the hospital where she worked. Personally identifiable information was stolen and sold by a hospital employee with access to patient files. At the hospital where he was employed, a patient escort sexually assaulted a patient in his care.

These crimes didn't happen at the same hospital, but these are actual cases where those healthcare employers were then asked 1) what they knew about each employee's criminal history 2) when they knew it and 3) what they chose to do with that information.
