• As the stated intent of the legislative mandate is ‘to protect individuals receiving services from unfit direct care staff as there currently is not a state registry for those with founded cases of abuse and neglect against adults”; however, the question of if an employee has been the focus of a founded allegation of abuse or neglect is not being asked. This information already is available in the CHRIS system. The State Board should use tools already in place to share the findings instead of placing new requirements on providers.
