Background Checks

 

Once you have identified a personal care worker you wish to hire, it is good due diligence to conduct a criminal or other background check.
 
Following are some links to Kansas resources that can help you. Please note that these links will give you information only about acts committed in Kansas.

  • The Adult Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation Central Registry is operated by the Kansas Department for Children and Families. This statewide registry identifies, after due process, persons substantiated for the abuse, neglect, exploitation or fiduciary abuse of vulnerable adults. To request a person’s name be searched on the Adult Abuse and Neglect Central Registry, his/her written permission is required using the Release of Information Form found on the website.
  • The Child Abuse and Neglect Central Registry is operated by the Kansas Department for Children and Families. According to Kansas law, a substantiated finding of abuse and/or neglect prohibits any person listed in the Child Abuse and Neglect Registry from working, residing, or volunteering in a child care home or facility regulated by KDHE. To request a person's name be searched on the Child Abuse and Neglect Central Registry, his/her written permission is required using the Registry Release Form found on the website. A $10.00 fee may apply for each request.
  • The Kansas Criminal History Record Check and the Kansas Registered Offender Registry are operated by the Kansas Bureau of Investigation.  

The Kansas Criminal History Record Check can provide a name-based criminal history record check for $20.00 per individual.

The Kansas Registered Offender website facilitates public access to information about persons who have been convicted of certain sex, violent and drug offenses, as set forth in the Kansas Offender Registration Act.  Please note the only way to positively link someone to a registered offender record is through fingerprint verification. A positive identification cannot conclusively be established by comparing name, date of birth, or other information provided on the website. The Kansas Registered Offender website does not include a complete criminal history for each offender, and therefore, obtaining information from the website does not constitute a valid background check for any purpose including employment.

  • The Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services provides a list of CNAs/CMAs with findings of abuse, neglect or exploitation. The list is available for public viewing on the website free of charge.
  • Background checks conducted by the The Kansas Department of Motor Vehicles cost $8.70. You will need written consent from the employee to conduct the search.
  • The Kansas Board of Nursing provides information about advanced practice registered nurses, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and certified nursing assistants. Phone:  785-296-4929.

    In addition to the above Kansas specific resources, you may also conduct some national checks: 

  • Office of Inspector General U.S. Dept. of Health & Human Services -  Provides names of individuals who are excluded from working for federally funded healthcare programs, including KanCare.
  • FBI Criminal Background Check - requires that your worker submit fingerprints. In most cases a local police department may take fingerprints from your worker and send them to the FBI. You may obtain additional information through the FBI website. Current processing time for an FBI check is 12 to 14 weeks.
  • National Criminal Database reports information from a compilation of sources at the county, state and federal levels.  Use caution when paying an online criminal data provider, as some lower priced providers may just give you a name and address history trace for their fee and not an actual criminal history search. Prices for criminal searches can range from $15 to over $100.
