Unusual Incident (UI) Procedures


  • The Montgomery County Board of Developmental Disabilities Services (MCBDDS) requires that all service providers use the DODD Appendix C Forms that have been made fillable by MCBDDS.
  • Independent Providers must submit all Unusual Incident (UI) Reports to the MCBDDS UI inbox at (www.UI@mcbdds.org) by the next business day following your knowledge of the incident.

  • MCBDDS would like for Agency and Independent Providers to submit monthly Unusual Incident Logs to ui@mcbdds.org to assist SSAs in monitoring caseload trends and patterns, and to support ongoing individual service plan coordination. These submissions are at the discretion of the provider.

    • See the fillable “Unusual Incident Report Log” available to Agency & Independent Providers as a useful tool via the DODD website. Using this tool helps ensure compliance in meeting requirements specified by the Rule. (Appendix 4)
  • Agency and Independent Providers are responsible for investigating all Unusual Incidents (UIs), and must ensure that prevention measures have been implemented and trends/patterns are identified and addressed.

  • See Section M of the MUI Rule for Requirements for Unusual Incidents. (Attachment 5).

  • For Major Unusual Incidents (MUIs):  The MUI Rule requires all providers to send their MUI Annual Analysis of Trends and Patterns Report to MUI@mcbdds.org for all programs operated in Montgomery County no later than February 28 of each year.
