To inform providers that on July 1, 2021, an investigation will not be mandatory and need to be completed by a Department-certified Investigator for the following incidents when reported in the Enterprise Incident Management (EIM) system:
- Serious Injury-Injury Accidental
- Abuse-Physical (when the target is another individual recipient of service)
- Abuse-Psychological (when the target is another individual recipient of service)
The EIM system will not require a Department-certified Investigator to be assigned. Providers will have the ability to proceed with an optional investigation and assign a Department-certified Investigator if desired.
