MN To Implement Stiffer Checks For Caregivers

July 19, 2014, 4:40 PM

ST. PAUL, MN -

By January, every new worker who cares for children, the elderly and other vulnerable populations at home or in state-licensed facilities will be required to be fingerprinted and photographed. It's part of a new law that intensifies criminal background checks for Minnesota caregivers.

The state Department of Human Services is working to help employers prepare for the change. Minnesota Public Radio News reports the changes are expected to make background checks more efficient.

Criminal background checks are run on about 250,000 Minnesota caregivers each year. The state estimates some 2,500 pass despite having criminal records.

Five nursing homes around the state are testing the new fingerprint-based system this month.
