Above, for your information, is a listing of all nurse aides who have had substantiated findings of resident abuse, neglect or misappropriation of resident property entered on the Pennsylvania Nurse Aide Registry as of April 6, 2015. The Nurse Aides names that have been added since the last issue are bolded.
Verification of a nurse aide's status must still be done before hiring to verify eligibility for employment in a nursing care facility. An individual nurse aide's status may be verified by accessing the twenty-four hour online access to the registry via the Department of Health website at www.health.state.pa.us . Once this site is accessed, click on:
- "HEALTHCARE FACILITIES" at the top of the screen
- "NURSE AIDES"
- "Nurse Aide Registry On-line" (https://www.pulseportal.com/selectStateAndBoard.do)
- From the dropdown menu "Choose a Program:" select "Pennsylvania Department of Health"
