Employers required to check Colorado Adult Protective Services (CAPS) database effective Jan. 1

Beginning Jan. 1, 2019, employers that serve at-risk adults, including assisted living residences (ALRs), PACE programs, nursing facilities and adult day services programs, must request a CAPS check prior to hiring employees who will be providing direct care. The database contains the names of individuals who have been found by APS to have mistreated at-risk adults. Employers must register prior to asking for a check and CDHS must respond as soon as possible but no later than five days from the day of the request. The rules set a maximum fee for the check at $16.50. CDHS has a dedicated website for more information.
