Health and safety are primary considerations for the County Board. We provide Emergency Intervention 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, and are required to immediately report Major Unusual Incidents (MUIs) and ensure proper notifications have been made in addition to safeguarding health and safety.

Our Investigative Services Unit oversees the reporting system that assures identification of the factors causing or contributing to the incident and development of prevention plans to reduce the likelihood of the incident occurring again.  Investigative Agents screen, investigate and facilitate prevention planning for the following types of major unusual incidents when there is reason to believe the health or welfare of an individual served by the Lake County Board of DD was adversely affected or placed at risk of harm:

  • Physical Abuse
  • Sexual Abuse
  • Verbal Abuse
  • Death
  • Exploitation
  • Failure to Report
  • Medical Emergency
  • Misappropriation
  • Missing Individual
  • Law Enforcement
  • Neglect
  • Peer to Peer Acts (Exploitation, Physical, Sexual, Theft, Verbal)
  • Prohibited Sexual Relations
  • Rights Violation
  • Significant Injury
  • Attempted Suicide
  • Unapproved Behavioral Support
  • Unanticipated Hospitalization

To report an MUI call (440) 350-5253 (LAKE) or (440) 918-5253 (LAKE).
