Mandatory Abuse Reporter

Foster providers and their staff are mandatory reporters of abuse or neglect of individuals with developmental disabilities as defined in OAR 407-045-0260. Providers must maintain proof of mandatory abuse report training for the provider, resident manager and substitute caregivers prior to licensure and/or upon hire and annually thereafter. To report suspected abuse, visit the Protective Services page for contact information.

Mandatory abuse reporter training is also available online through the DHS learning center. View instructions.

Mandatory abuse reporting notices and cards are available on the State's website. There you can download the Mandatory Abuse Reporting for Adults with Developmental Disabilities Card and Notice - Mandatory Abuse Reporting Notice for Adults with Developmental Disabilities.
