Effective September 29th, section 5101.63 of the Revised Code significantly expanded the list of individuals mandated to report suspected elder abuse in Ohio. Included on the list of mandatory reporters are medical professionals.
To support medical professionals in their new responsibilities, the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) developed training materials on identifying and reporting elder abuse. ODJFS has developed the reference guide with information specifically for individuals working in the medical field. To read more about the code and find the guide, please visit our resource page:
