First, remove yourself and/or the individual with disabilities from harm, which may include calling 911.
As of Aug. 1, the new MUI Reporting Hotline is active by calling (513) 559-6629. This reporting line will allow staff, providers, and/or others to report an MUI through a voicemail system; there will also be the option to speak with a HCDDS staff if immediate assistance is needed 24 hours a day/7 days per week.
