Kentucky receives grant to screen potential nursing home employees

Posted on June 29th, 2011 No Comments

The state of Kentucky was recently given a $3 million federal grant to establish a system to more thoroughly screen potential nursing home employees. Officials are hoping that this will prevent nursing home abuse and neglect by hiring people who are better qualified to take care of the elderly and disabled.

The grant will allow officials from the Cabinet for Health and Family Services to purchase equipment that will conduct background checks using the fingerprints of people looking to be hired. The scan of the fingerprint will then go to both state and FBI background checks in order to see if a potential hire has a criminal background.

The equipment will be used in nursing homes across the state, as well as in Alzheimer’s facilities, family care homes, hospices, and assisted living facilities.

If someone you love has been the victim of abuse or neglect in a nursing home, please contact the Louisville nursing home malpractice lawyers of Sampson Law Firm at 502-584-5050.
