If a person with a disability, whether child or adult, is abused, neglected, or exploited, please report this information as soon as possible to the Hancock County Board of Disabilities. If you have an unusual incident that you believe meets the level of MUI, you should submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org. During evenings, weekends, or holidays, call our emergency number at 419-722-9262.
All providers who are contracted, certified or licensed to serve persons with developmental disabilities are required to report certain MUIs to the county board within four hours of the incident. These include:
- Accidental or suspicious death
