What to report
Suspicion of abuse or neglect against a person with a disability. Specifically, you must report any serious physical/emotional injury of a disabled individual that you reasonably suspect resulted from the act or omission of a caretaker (which DPPC refers to as a “reportable condition”). A caretaker is any person or agency responsible for a disabled person's health or welfare by providing for or directly providing assistance in meeting a daily living need.
