My family member has had extensive identity theft. It has been a complete nightmare. It turns out that a couple of CNA attendants that were hired from an attendant company to come in their home have extensive criminal backgrounds. It looks like they are part of a crime ring. When the attendant company was asked what kind of background check they performed, they said they only checked records with DPS. We were told if they had checked finger prints, all of their records would come up, even nationwide and not just in Texas. I was also told that the state of Texas only requires a statewide background check. With many attendants just moving here from another state, it should be required by the state to do a nationwide background check. Does anyone have any suggestions of who to send letters and a petition to require finger print background checks for everyone working at these in home care agencies? Also, ideally I would like there to be an automatic recheck of backgrounds by the state so people who have stolen or have serious charges of intentional crime / theft, etc should loose their CNA license and other direct care licenses. Does anyone have experience or suggestions of how to get these changes to happen? Thank you in advance!
