What are Colorado regulations for volunteers in Assisted Living Communities?

Question

When we have a volunteer apply to volunteer what are the state requirements (Back ground, Drug screen, t.b. ext)?

Answer

They do need to have a TB test and the regs are as follows.

Chapter 7 says 104(3)(c)

The staff who has direct personal contact with the residents of a facility and any volunteer performing personal services or protective oversight, under the auspices of the facility for residents of such facility... shall obtain any criminal history record information from a criminal agency.

104(3)(f) says Volunteers providing direct care shall receive training appropriate to their duties and responsibilities.

104(4)(c) says Volunteers may be utilized in the facility but may not be included in the facility's staffing plan in lieu of facility employees.

Nothing in Chapter II or the ACF 8.495
