Assisted Living Technical Assistance

March 8th, 2011 by admin Leave a reply »

Our Assisted Living Licensing Office is working hard to get the message out about important (and exciting) changes taking place in the program, like our new Online Renewal System.  Representatives from the Office are meeting with the Arizona Board of Examiners of Nursing Care Institution Administrators and Assisted Living Facility Managers, the Long Term Care Ombudsman, Adult Protective Services, AHCCCS, the Foundation for Senior Living, and the Arizona Board of Nursing, as well as various Assisted Living provider organizations, to give short presentations about the office and ways that we can work with the community and other agencies to protect the health and safety of Assisted Living residents throughout the State.  In addition to discussing changes in the Office, these networking meetings will help those organizations help us when we have facilities in need of our assistance.

    A little off of your topic here but you seem to be the man to ask! My organization provides certified fingerprint collection services for those who are applying for an AZ-DPS Level 1 or Regular clearance card.

    We have discovered considerable confusion across customers whose employees and volunteers provide non-medical support services for Arizona’s vulnerable citizens. Are these employees and volunteers required to obtain Regular AZ Fingerprint Clearance Cards to facilitate in home support and transportation services?

      Jill-
      There is no requirement for fingerprinting for employees and volunteers that facilitate in home support and transportation services.

        Thank you very much for confirming. We understood that non-medical service and support providers did NOT fall under the auspices of AZ Statute 36-411… at least not yet.
