Major Unusual Incidents (MUI)

A Major Unusual Incident (MUI) is defined as any alleged, suspected, or actual occurrence of an incident that adversely affects the health and welfare of an individual receiving services from the County Board. There are nineteen types of incidents defined in the rule that are considered major unusual incidents. All of these require an investigation in compliance with the Ohio Department of Developmental Disability rule standards.

The Franklin County Board of Developmental Disabilities MUI Unit investigates all MUIs and ensures that immediate actions are taken to protect individuals from harm. An investigation is conducted to determine the cause and contributing factors of the incident and develop a prevention plan to reduce the likelihood of recurrence.

Actual or suspected MUIs may be reported to the Franklin County Board of Developmental Disabilities by calling (614) 464-2743 during business or non-business hours.

Please access the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD) website at the links below for Health and Welfare Alerts and Major Unusual Incident Tool Kit and Resources (includes training materials and forms).
