Announcing: NEW Online Way to Report Abuse or Neglect of Vulnerable Adults in North Dakota

If you are a mandated reporter, which includes those professionals required by law to report suspected abuse, neglect, or exploitation of a vulnerable adult, you can now report your concerns online using a NEW confidential website administered by the N.D. Department of Human Services at https://fw2.harmonyis.net/NDLiveIntake/.

The reporting system is for non-urgent concerns.  Anyone who believes a vulnerable adult (person with a substantial mental or functional disability) is at imminent risk of serious injury or death should call 911.

Reports are reviewed and responded to by Vulnerable Adult Protective Services professionals who follow-up and may gather more information to completely assess the situation, and who make referrals for appropriate supportive services to help reduce or eliminate any risk or harm to vulnerable adults.

Those who choose to report possible abuse or neglect of vulnerable adults by phone or other means can find contact information and more details on the department’s website at: http://www.nd.gov/dhs/services/adultsaging/reporting.html.

Questions should be directed to: Michelle Gayette, MMGT/LAC, Elder Rights Program Administrator, Aging Services Division, mgayette@nd.gov, 701-328-4613.
