Health & Welfare Alerts


Please visit the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities' Health and Welfare Alerts site for all current and historical postings.

The purpose of Health and Welfare Alerts is to provide critical information to caregivers in areas in which the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities has identified a risk to individuals' health and welfare.  These alerts provide data, additional resources and guidance on what can be done to avoid or minimize risk. The purpose of Ohio's Health and Safety system is to mitigate incidents, provide timely care when needed and offer appropriate reporting. These alerts are one more step to keep our partners informed on the health and welfare challenges individuals with disabilities face and how we can help.

All Brown County Board of Development Disabilities employees are required to be trained annually on identification and reporting of M.U.I.s (Major Unusual Incidents) and U.I.s (Unusual Incidents) prior to unsupervised contact. This training includes the review of any Health and Welfare Alerts released during the previous calendar year. For questions or comments regarding these alerts, please contact the MUI/Registry Unit at 614.995.3810.
