We need DHS and providers to be utilizing the principles that come from the Culture of Safety/Collaborative Safety to work through the incidents and look at the variety of factors that impact an incident, not just who to blame.
Tracy Murphy
Yes Stacy! Yes!!

From my HR Director, just now ….• DHS is scheduled to resume Finger Print based background studies starting November 3, 2021. At that time we will begin submitting our new employees through the fully compliant study process. Since April 6, 2020 we have been using the “Emergency background study” process due to COVID. On or after December 1, 2021 we will begin the transition to the resubmissions for fully compliant studies for those currently with emergency studies. This means we will be scheduling finger prints for all new employees we have hired since April 2020 to present.

Thank you Senators for your support, ideas and listening hearts. Thank you ARRM for organizing. Thank you providers for advocating for your clients, residents and staff!!
