H. B. 3108

 

         (By Delegates Campbell, Ellington, Morgan

                        and Perdue)

         [Introduced March 25, 2013; referred to the

Committee on Health and Human Resources then the Judiciary.]

 

 

A BILL to amend the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, by adding thereto a new section, designated §16-5C-21, relating generally to nursing homes; requiring a professional licensee applying for work or working in a nursing home to meet the criminal background check standard to obtain licensure to work in a nursing home.

Be it enacted by the Legislature of West Virginia:

    That the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, be amended by adding thereto a new section, designated §16-5C-21, to read as follows:

ARTICLE 5C. NURSING HOMES.

§16-5C-21. Professional Licensee.

    A person licensed under chapter thirty of this code and applying for work or working in a nursing home shall only be required to meet the criminal background check standard established to obtain licensure in order to work in a nursing home. If a criminal background check standard is not established for that profession under chapter thirty of this code, the department shall implement a criminal background check standard by proposing a rule for legislative approval in accordance with the provisions of article three, chapter twenty-nine-a of this code. 

 

    NOTE: The purpose of this bill is to implement a criminal background check standard that is consistent to obtain licensure and to work in a nursing home.



    §16-5C-21 is new; therefore, it has been completely underscored.
