I'm a new DON in Massachusetts and I'm looking for a list of reportable events that need to be reported to DPH, and the time frame of when they need to be reported. Does anyone have a list??

Any allegation of abuse- 2 hours to send the preliminary report.

Any fall with fracture or major injury. 5 days

A strike or walkout

An allegation of misappropriation

A med error with harm

A crime that causes serious bodily injury... 2 hours and you have to also call the police

A resident to resident altercation... and you have to call the police

An injury of unknown origin

Good luck as a new DON. Massachusetts has the strictest regs

Not sure, but I think you also have to notify them if there's a power outage (heat or AC)) or loss of water.

A missing person.

CCM - I might arm wrestle you for bragging rights to say New Jersey has the strictest.

You're right... I forgot about elopement

We don't report loss of power unless the generators fail
