Providers who use the Employee Misconduct Registry (EMR) are being asked to immediately redo all EMR searches conducted from June 9, 2017, through July 27, 2017, to verify the employability of individuals they have hired. While the system is now fully updated, a delay in uploading names to the Employability Status Check Search means any EMR searches conducted during this two-month period could be invalid.

The Employability Status Check Search system consolidates the checks of the Nurse Aide Registry, Medication Aide Registry and Employee Misconduct Registry. Every provider must maintain a copy of the new results of each search in the facility's or individual employer's books and records.

Additional information can found in Provider Letter No. 17-23 issued by the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services.
