Investigation of episodes of injury and personal characteristics among 412 individuals with mental retardation living in Intermediate Care Facilities found that 16% of the group experienced 67% of injuries. Individuals taking antipsychotics, having higher maladaptive behavior scores, and having relatively higher levels of adaptive behavior were most likely to be in the high injury group. (Author/DB)
