Recruiting for Clinical Laboratory Personnel

Please Take Note: The information provided does not constitute legal or tax advice. The material is provided for informational/educational purposes only. Please consult with counsel regarding your organization's particular circumstances.

Question: We have had three vacancies for lab personnel for 15 months. Without sufficient staff, we could not complete tests and patient safety and satisfaction would be at risk. Should we report the costs of recruiting overseas for lab personnel as community benefit?

Recommendation: We recommend not reporting the cost of recruiting lab personnel since this expense is a cost of doing business.
