245C.07 Study subject affiliated with multiple facilities.
(a) When a license holder owns multiple facilities that are licensed by the Department of Human Services, only one background study is required for an individual who provides direct contact services in one or more of the licensed facilities if:
(1) the license holder designates one individual with one address and telephone number as the person to receive sensitive background study information for the multiple licensed programs that depend on the same background study; and
(2) the individual designated to receive the sensitive background study information is capable of determining, upon request of the department, whether a background study subject is providing direct contact services in one or more of the license holder's programs and, if so, at which location or locations.
(b) When a background study is being initiated by a licensed facility or a foster care provider that is also registered under chapter 144D, a study subject affiliated with multiple licensed facilities may attach to the background study form a cover letter indicating the additional facilities' names, addresses, and background study identification numbers.
When the commissioner receives a notice, the commissioner shall notify each facility identified by the background study subject of the study results.
The background study notice the commissioner sends to the subsequent agencies shall satisfy those facilities' responsibilities for initiating a background study on that individual.
