According to the requirements of the New York State Department of Health, all nursing homes and home care agencies must do a fingerprint-based criminal history record check (CHRC) for all their new nursing assistant candidates. This check is to be done before the candidates are allowed to handle the patients.
It will be the job of the healthcare facility or the home care agency to get the candidate’s fingerprints. The prints will then be sent to the Department of Criminal Justice Services where they will be checked to see if the candidate has committed any felonies within the state. Once the check is done by the DCJS, they will then forward the prints to the FBI so they can be compared with the national database.
If there are any felonies or records that are found during the search, the nursing homes or agencies are required to give the candidate the opportunity to review and give their explanation for the records. If the candidates wish so, they may withdraw their applications without any prejudice from the facility or agency. If they do so, the candidate’s records that were obtained will then be destroyed.
It is the job of the health facility or agency to review their records and verify the status of the candidate prior to hiring them. The Nurse Aide Registry of New York is available 24 hours every day. They can go online to www.prometric.com/NurseAide/Ny to verify.
