SECTION 40.1-25.1-6


§ 40.1-25.1-6 Rules and regulations.

The director shall promulgate rules and regulations to carry out the intent of this chapter. The rules shall specify the types of jobs and positions which would require national criminal background checks and the rules shall specify those items of information appearing on a criminal records check which constitute disqualifying information because that information would indicate that the employment could endanger the health or welfare of patients, clients or residents. The rules and regulations shall specify that the department shall bear the responsibility for the cost of the national background checks. In doing so, the department shall consider and seek all possible avenues of reimbursement for these background checks. In no event shall the provider, the state or local police department or the applicant be responsible for any portion of the cost of the national background check.
