It means your hireling can only make a given skill check once per scenario. If your hireling tries to perform an autopsy with Medicine, they can still use Medicine to perform another autopsy on a different body later, or to patch up a party member outside of combat.
After reading it again, I see there is no "per scenario" clause included with "can attempt a given skill check only once". If we were to ignore the word "check" and interpret it as "can attempt a given skill only once", as you suggest, wouldn't that mean that a hireling can only use each of their three skills once ever?
