If you or another person with a disability you know is a victim of abuse, neglect, theft, a crime, etc, the Major Unusual Incident and Prevention (MUIP) Department is here to help. 

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. 

Click here for written details of how to report an MUI using this new system, reporting procedures, and required information needed when reporting.  By implementing this system, we hope this will streamline the reporting process by assisting you with ensuring that notifications are made to the MUI Department as required per rule, while ensuring the health and welfare of the individuals we serve. 

If you have any questions regarding this system, please contact Jennie Flowers

24-hour hotline: (513) 794-3308.

This line is operated 24 hours a day, seven days a week. During off-hours, an on-call Hamilton County DD Services employee will call you back as soon as possible.
