DHSS’ Long Term Care Division issued guidance through its LTCF Listserv regarding changes with certification renewal of CNAs. Hospitals employing CNAs will receive an email asking for verification that the CNA has completed the federal work requirement of at least eight hours in the last 24 months. Hospitals will need to create a hospital profile and provide the online verification. Hospitals only will receive the email once the CNA has completed the renewal notification and paid a $20 fee. Hospitals wanting to cover the renewal fee for staff may contact Headmaster directly. Additional information can be found on the department’s website.
