August 1, 2010 saw changes in the law, passed by the Florida legislatureÂ (Chapter Law 2010-114), which significantly modified the background screening and hiring process for many service providers regulated by a variety of state agencies including health care providers licensed by the Agency for Health Care Administration under Chapter 408, Part II, Florida Statutes (F.S.). Florida Statutes now make it mandatory for health care givers to undergo a Level Two Background check. AT HOME SENIOR CARE OF BROWARD is within the class of home care agencies, nurse registries, and homemaker companion firms that must comply with this kind of screening procedure. A Level Two background check necessitates that our employees, independent contractors and subcontractors; anyone that we introduce into our client’s homes, must be fingerprinted and be scrutinized to be in compliance with Florida Statute 408. (AHCA), The Agency for Health Care Administration determines a caregiver’s individual eligibility to be associated with AT HOME SENIOR CARE. The Registry serves as the custodian of records for the caregivers affected by the Statute. The (F.D.L.E.) Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the F.B.I. completes a criminal check to certify that each caregiver is free of crimes of moral turpitude to satisfy the Statute. This protocol screens caregivers not only in Florida, but out of state issues that a caregiver may have been involved in his or her past. AT HOME SENIOR CARE utilizes a State recommended vender to double check all required screening. Additionally we go further than the Statutory requirements and check our caregiver’s driver’s license validity , as well as credit checking to determine character quality. When someone is appointed to enter your home, you have a profound need to know that this individual has an excellent track record.
