Nursing Aide Registry
Maryland CNA Classes | CNA training program in Maryland - CNA Training
New law (HB1435) starting November 1, 2015, requires nurse aides and trainees to provide their current address to the State Department of Health's nurse aide registry and notify the registry of any change in address within ten days. Correspondence will be sent to the address on file with the registry, and if it is returned as not deliverable it will be considered legally served.
The new law permits the Department to suspend or revoke a nurse aide certification for cause, such as criminality revealed by a background check or any abuse, neglect or exploitation of residents under the aide’s care.
Below are the bullet points of the changes to Title 63 O.S., Section 1-1951(A)(7), (D)(3)(b), and (D)(8).
• Certified nurse aides and nurse aide trainees shall maintain with the registry current residential addresses and shall notify the registry, in writing, of any change of name. Notification of change of name shall require certified copies of any marriage license or other court document which reflects the change of name.
• Notice of change of address or telephone number shall be made within ten (10) days of the effected change. Notice shall not be accepted over the phone.
• In any proceeding in which the Department is required to serve notice or an order on an individual, the Department may send written correspondence to the address on file with the Registry. If the correspondence is returned and a notation of the United States Postal Service indicates “unclaimed” or “moved” or “refused” or any other non-delivery markings and the records of the Registry indicate that no change of address as required has been received by the Registry, the notice and any subsequent notices or orders shall be deemed by the court as having been legally served for all purposes.
