CNA/QMA/Home Health Aide Registry and Criminal Background Checks
The ISDH alerted the IHCA that there have been a few persons that have cheated the CNA/QMA/Home Health Aide Registry in the past couple of months by using a former or married name to be re-listed on the registry after having been excluded for improper conduct. The ISDH encourages all facilities to use a Criminal Background Check and all names listed on that background check to compare against the Registry to see if the person appears under a different name. The ISDH cannot run Social Security numbers over the internet, but can confirm with a Social Security number if the facility calls the ISDH. To contact the Aide Registry Program, call Darlene Jones at 317-233-7351.
