Why is there no registry of abuse/ and neglect of disabled individuals? I'm not understanding the lack of this data being kept since the state is constantly updating CHRIS reporting methods and giving out citations for suspected abuse/ neglect etc.? Why would we share background checks with other agencies when they are supposed to be doing their own background checks especially since we pay for all of our background checks unless they are going to all of the sudden become free. Then are we not required to complete our own background checks and we can use another providers? If so is there a timeline for when we can use and ask for it form another provider? If another provider asks for a background check that costs us money to get can we charge them the money?
