Affiliation Agreement Addendum for
Caregiver Background Checks on
University shall conduct a caregiver background check in accordance with the Caregiver Background Check statutes (Wis. Stats. §48.685 and §50.065) and regulations (Wis. Admin. Code Ch. HFS 12) for University students who have or are expected to have regular, direct contact with Facility’s clients. University shall maintain completed Background Information Disclosure (BID) forms for those students, as well as the information that results from caregiver background checks. University will retain the BID form and caregiver background check results for inspection by the Department of Health and Family Services.
University agrees to notify Facility of any information contained on a BID form and/or caregiver background check results about a student that could bar, as that phrase is defined by the relevant regulations, that student from regular, direct contact, as that phrase is defined by the relevant regulations, with Facility’s clients.
Facility shall make the final determination whether a student may have regular, direct contact with Facility’s clients. Nevertheless, Facility shall consult with the appropriate University official before barring any such student from regular, direct contact with Facility’s clients. If Facility determines a student may not have regular, direct contact with Facility’s clients, University agrees not to permit that student to begin participation, or to continue participation that was properly allowed pending the results of the caregiver background check for up to 60 days, in the program created by this Agreement.
University agrees to inform Facility of allegations of caregiver misconduct as defined in Wis. Admin. Code Ch. HFS 13 that come to University’s attention.
