The Act provides for criminal record checks of all persons who wish to become employed by nursing home facilities. It also provides that the Georgia Crime Information Center (GCIC) is immune from liability for faulty reporting. Additionally, the Act immunizes nursing homes from liability for certain claims an employee or employment applicant may have based on a GCIC report to the nursing home facility.
