Please begin using this portal to submit all reportable incidents. The Department is no longer processing reportables submitted through email or fax. You will also need to check the portal regularly as this is where providers will receive survey reports and respond to survey deficiencies. It is also useful in communicating back and forth with the Assisted Living Program staff.
