The purpose of the MUI system is to identify the causal factors leading to the incident and develop prevention plans to reduce the likelihood of a recurrence and improve quality of life.

A MUI (Major Unusual Incident) is an alleged, suspected or actual occurrence of an incident when:

  1. there is reason to believe the health or safety of an individual with developmental disabilities may be adversely affected, or may be placed at a reasonable risk of harm;
  2. if such individual is receiving services through the Developmental Disabilities service delivery system or will be receiving services as the result of the incident.
