​​​​​​​​In the spring of 2017, the requirements governing the Health Care Professional Responsibility and Reporting Enhancement Act (a.k.a The Cullen Law) were updated and the reporting process now requires specific documentation, forms, record retention and compliance with updated reporting procedures.  The laws and regulations require New Jersey licensed health care entities,  health maintenance organizations ,insurance carriers that offer a managed care plan, State or county psychiatric hospitals, State developmental centers, staffing registries, and all home care & hospice agencies to report health care professionals licensed or certified by the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs or  the Department of Health who are employed by, or under contract to render professional services to the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs, Health Care Professional Information Clearing House Coordinator regarding the health care professional’s conduct relating to impairment, incompetence or professional misconduct which relates to patient safety and the health care entity has taken action against them.

A health care professional shall file a report with the Health Care Professional Information Clearing House Coordinator if that health care professional is in possession of information which reasonably indicates that another health care professional has demonstrated an impairment, gross incompetence or unprofessional conduct which would present an imminent danger to an individual patient or to the public health, safety or welfare of the patient. 

Objectives:

  • Review the mandatory CN-9 form that must be used when replying to a reference or employment history request.
  • Identify the responsibilities for record retention for both future and former employers in  reference documentation and personnel records.
  • Outline the new civil monetary penalties that are in place for those who fail to comply with the new regulations.
