Such persons satisfy this requirement if:

Upon request, a copy of screening results shall be provided to the person screened by the employer retaining documentation of the screening.
(3) The person required to be screened is employed by a corporation or business entity or related corporation or business entity that owns, operates, or manages more than one facility or agency licensed under chapter 400 or this chapter, and for whom a level 1 screening was conducted by the corporation or business entity as a condition of initial or continued employment.
