Attached, 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 January 4, 2019. 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.pa.gov/ . Once this site is accessed, click on "Healthcare Facilities" at top of page and next select "Registries" and "Nurse Aides". Next click on "Nurse Aide Registry On-line". Choose "Pennsylvania Department of Health" under the program once on the Pearson Vue Pulse portal page and use "Registry Search".
If you would like additional information or have any questions, please feel free to contact Division of Nursing Care Facility staff at 717-787-1816.
