Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Health Care Worker Background Check Act. Requires the Department of Public Health to establish and maintain the Health Care Worker Registry of specified health care workers. Makes corresponding changes in the Nursing Home Care Act, MC/DD Act, and ID/DD Community Care Act, including deleting language requiring the Department to establish and maintain a health care worker registry in each of those Acts. Provides that the information contained in the Health Care Worker Registry shall include information from the registries established under the Nursing Home Care Act, MC/DD Act, and the ID/DD Community Care Act. Specifies that certain prohibitions on health care employers and long-term care facilities retaining individuals applies whether the individual is paid or is a volunteer. Adds specified offenses to a provision that prohibits health care employers and long-term care facilities from hiring a person who has been convicted of certain offenses. Makes other changes. Amends the Department of Human Services Act, Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Administrative Act, and Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Confidentiality Act to make conforming and other changes. Effective immediately.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Removes definitions for "abuse", "misappropriation of property", and "neglect" from the Health Care Worker Background Check Act. Makes changes to the list of specified offenses in a provision of the Act that prohibits health care employers and long-term care facilities from hiring a person who has been convicted of certain offenses. Removes language prohibiting a health care employer from hiring, employing, or retaining specified individuals with certain applicable findings by the Department of Public Health as set forth by rule. Adds language to provisions of the Act concerning the hiring of people with criminal records by health care employers and long-term care facilities providing that a health care employer shall not hire, employ, or retain, whether paid or on a volunteer basis, any individual in a position with duties involving direct care of clients, patients, or residents, who has a finding by the Department of Human Services of physical or sexual abuse, financial exploitation, or egregious neglect of an individual denoted on the Health Care Worker Registry. In provisions concerning notice and hearing requirements prior to designation on the Registry, removes language requiring the Department of Public Health to notify an employee or former employee if the Department makes certain applicable findings as set forth by rule. In provision concerning designation on the Registry for an offense, removes language concerning a specified finding and certain information that may be denoted on the Registry.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Removes a specified provision of the Narcotics Profit Forfeiture Act from the list of specified offenses in a provision of the Health Care Worker Background Check Act that prohibits health care employers and long-term care facilities from hiring a person who has been convicted of certain offenses. In provisions concerning designation on the Health Care Worker Registry for offenses, provides that after the designation of neglect (rather than neglect or other applicable findings set forth by rule) on the Registry, employees or former employees may petition the Department of Public Health for removal of the designation after certain durations.
