State Registry
Effective July 1, 2007, the New Hampshire Statute RSA 161-F:49 requires that all employers of programs that are licensed, certified, or funded by the NH Department of Health and Human Services to provide services, submit the name of prospective employees who may have client contact for review against the registry of founded reports of abuse, neglect, and exploitation of incapacitated adults. In addition, any individual hiring a caregiver directly, or through an authorized representative or fiscal intermediary may submit the prospective employee's name for registry review.

After receipt of a complete Consent Form, the State Registry will inform the employer whether a prospective employee is or is not on the registry.

If you have any questions about the Department's responsibilities to administer the BEAS State Registry, please contact the BEAS State Registry by telephone at (800) 852-3345, extension 8154 or (603) 271-8154, or via e-mail at BEASStateRegistry@dhhs.state.nh.us. Individual employers with questions about their responsibilities under the Statute may wish to seek legal advice from their own legal counsel.
