DDDS strives to evaluate the total volume of incidents that occur to the individuals it serves, and understand their severity, regularity, and trending over time. A report is completed annually that details the number of investigated incidents by type and service setting for the prior state fiscal year. DDDS aims to use this information to identify areas of success, and improvement, with the goal of utilizing it to assist in safeguarding individuals served from abuse, neglect,and mistreatment.
The table below displays the total determinations, or final categorizations, of investigated incidents since state fiscal year 19. Only substantiated incidents that were attributed to a breach in policy, protocol, or standard of care are included. It is sometimes necessary for a given incident to be assigned multiple determinations to fully capture what occurred. Please refer to the available Annual Reports for further information.
