Health MO CNA Registry
- DHSS now requires LIMAs to finish a biennial update of their training
- This registry also extends to include approved instructors, examiners and supervisors
- This list also includes LPNs and RNs who are approved to be instructors and examiners
In the state of Missouri, changes were recently made to the process of how CNAs, CMTs, and LIMAs register. These changes affect how people with these qualifications handle their day to day duties, as well as how they’re hired and their yearly training.
One change was that people with these qualifications are now required to complete a biennial training update that wasn’t required before. Individuals that are classified as MH Medication Aides can now apply to receive their DHSS LIMA certification. As new individuals finish their annual training or complete new training, their information will be viewable in a national online registry.
In addition, federal law now requires this registry to document any instances of abuse, neglect, or misappropriation. If one of these occurrences happens in an area of the hospital that is designated Medicare or Medicaid, the offender will receive a notation on their profile and will be prohibited from working in any certified facility. Certified long-term care facilities or hospitals are also prohibited from hiring anyone who has a federal violation notation in their profile.
One final change was in the way that people applying for a Certified Nurse’s Assistant position are hired. Presently, their CNA certification must be verified when they are extended an offer for employment. In previous years, this certification wasn’t verified until later in the hiring process.
