Registration process open for employers required to check Colorado Adult Protective Services (CAPS) database

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. After Jan. 1, CDPHE will check employee files as part of their regular survey processes to determine if the database was checked on new employees. Employers who are mandated to request a check of the Adult Protective Services data system (CAPS) must register with the CAPS Check Unit (CCU) before those requests can be made are strongly encouraged to register before Jan. 1.
