The informational document linked to at the bottom of this page is intended to provide licensed assisted living facilities in Ohio with an understanding of their legal duty to report to ODH, along with how and when such reports are to be submitted.
Licensed Residential Care Facilities (RCFs) (assisted living facilities) are required to report certain instances of abuse, neglect, exploitation, and misappropriation of resident property to the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) pursuant to licensure requirements.
In addition, facilities certified under the Medicaid Waiver program have a duty to report certain incidents, including abuse, neglect, and exploitation involving Medicaid Waiver residents, to the Ohio Department of Aging (ODA) or to the local adult protective services program, and to the County Department of Medicaid.
The attached informational document is intended to assist RCFs with an understanding of their duty to report to ODH, along with how and when such reports are to be submitted.
The summaries in the attached document track the legal requirements. RCFs are free, however, to report more liberally if they so choose.
