Raleigh report notes pre-employment background checks
pre-employment background screening and the role it should play in the hiring of individuals at adult care homes in North Carolina. The section regarding these checks states: “The Division of Aging and Adult Services has been asked to study the issue of criminal history record checks for owners, operators, volunteers, and prospective owners, operators, and volunteers in adult day care programs and adult day health services programs. Among other things, the legislation (HB 1703 -SL2010-93) specifies that the study should identify which positions warrant a background check, develop a process for conducting the checks and designate who is responsible for requesting and paying for the check. County Departments of Social Services have been directed to conduct follow-up monitoring of adult care homes (HB 1186 – SL2009-232). The law is meant to improve patient safety by improving oversight of adult-care homes.” It is important that such reports and research place a focus on this, as the MYB blog has spoken previously about circumstances where such checks have been overlooked, and the consequences been tragic.
