6.11, chapter 26, Personnel- Credential Check DORA 6.11 C
We collect the following from each contractor. Per contract, all elements must be current to be an active contractor and receive payment.
We do not work with employees and therefor do not do employee reviews. However, we do service result reviews. Any comments during reviews or otherwise are attached to the provider's file.
In order to get to know us or our community:
Basic contract requires:
APS Check (Jan. 2019)
If you are Driving Clients, Hosting Clients in Your Home/Office, Helping with Medications, or providing Hands On Care for Activities of Daily Living there are Additional Requirements.
Hosting Clients at Home/Office
Multi-Hazard Safety Training
Resident List with CBI
QMAP State Training
*For those providing hands on care, competency documentation must be provided, this may be provided initially by means of documentation of schooling, training at an organization, or a competency workshop and then competency workshops are required annually afterwards.
Effective date is listed officially as the first time a provider logs into the software system and agrees to their contract with a service start date listed as the date they first provide service.
Termination date is listed officially at the time termination letter is sent and includes a reason as to why the contract was terminated or if the provider did not provide services, when they were deactivated in the system.
We review each potential's contract request to determine if they have experience relevant to the IDD community. This may be in the form of personal experience, training (formal or informal), volunteer experience or a combination. For those who are highly interested in the filed but do not have experience we will offer them shadowing and mentorship to determine if they are truly interested in this work. If they are, an action plan is created to make sure they secure support in providing services such as referral control, continuing education, or mentorship.
Rather than a quantity of experience we are seeking an ability to fulfil the contract and as our community of need is diverse so will the be the qualifiers for a contract. There is specifically room for a provider and client to request a contract with limited to no experience due to the fact that the provider and client wish to work and learn together so long as the service plan goals can be met.
For those providing more complicated services or licensed services, service specific credentials and education are required. Details are determined by individual client's needed.
For training the required nursing oversight and competency (as required for gtubes) review we will contract with an independent nurse or doctor in order to provide this on an as needed basis. If the client has an established relationship with a medical professional we will attempt to work with them to support continuity of care first. Competency documentation will be determined by the contracted medical professional.
