Its good to know this information in case you have a problem or question about your family member receiving home health or home care.

The New Jersey Department of Health is responsible for the licensing and oversight of New Jersey's Home Health Care Agencies. Besides inspecting and enforcing regulations, the department is also responsible for new licensing standards and revisions to existing standards in the changing health care industry.

The Office can investigate and issue credentials for Health Care Professionals, including background checks. The Health Care Worker Background Check Act applies to all unlicensed individuals employed or retained as home health care aides, nurse aides, personal care assistants, private duty nurse aides, day training personnel, or an individual working in any similar health-related occupation.

If you, or someone in your family who is receiving home nursing or home health care has a complaint about patient's rights or the level of care, you can contact the Department's Division of Health Facilities Evaluation and Licensing. There is an on-line complaint form at File a Complaint. It takes several steps to fill out the form, and you must provide accurate identification of the facility. You can also call their Hotline. The number is 1-800-792-9770.
