The Level 2 Background Screening for Nursing Homes is required by AHCA and based on F.S. 400.215. Statute says
(1) The agency shall require level 2 background screening for personnel as required in s. 408.809(1)(e) pursuant to chapter 435 and s. 408.809.
(2) The agency shall, as allowable, reimburse nursing facilities for the cost of conducting background screening as required by this section. This reimbursement is not subject to any rate ceilings or payment targets in the Medicaid Reimbursement plan.
The Legislature recognizes that there is a need to require the fingerprint based background check for the staff and administration of Nursing Homes in Florida. Therefore, the Legislature deems it necessary in the interest of the public health to screen the staff of Nursing Homes in this state.
