Expanding Opportunities for Ethics Committees: Residential Centers for the Mentally Retarded and Developmentally Disabled
Cambridge Quarterly of Healthcare Ethics. 1994 Spring: 3(2): 226-232.
Over the past 15 years, ethics committees have become common within the acute care hospital setting. Their development within long-term care settings has evolved more slowly and has been confined primarily to nursing homes. In this paper, I describe the development of an ethics committee in a residential center for the mentally retarded and developmentally disabled (MR/DD). I describe how the committee has progressed and some of the ethical issues in this setting.
