At my facility we are required to report any suspected abuse to our abuse coordinator which is also our facility administrator. If at any time we don’t feel comfortable reporting to the administrator or would like to report anonymously we are permitted to do that as well.
Florida law requires the reporting of known or suspected abuse, neglect, exploitation or self-neglect of vulnerable adults (elderly or disabled). The Florida Abuse Hotline is the part of the Department of Children and Families (DCF) to which the report is made. The Florida Abuse Hotline receives reports 24 hours a day from anywhere in the United States.
