Caregiver Misconduct Reporting Requirements

Back to Wisconsin Feeding Assistant Program - Introduction

Wisconsinís Caregiver Law, implemented in October 1998, requires all DQA-regulated entities to report allegations of misconduct (abuse or neglect of a client, or misappropriation of a clientís property) regarding any caregiver:
  • who is an employee of or contractor with the facility and 
  • who has regular, direct contact with clients.
Feeding assistants meet Wisconsinís definition of a caregiver and allegations involving a feeding assistant are subject to the caregiver misconduct reporting requirements.

See Chapter 6 of the Wisconsin Caregiver Program Manual for information on reporting employee misconduct.

The name of any noncredentialed caregiver (including a feeding assistant), with a substantiated finding of misconduct will be entered on the Wisconsin Caregiver Misconduct Registry.
