Minihan, Paula M.
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v104 n2 p131-42 Mar 1999
An investigation of smoking polices and smoking practices of residents and employees in 106 Massachusetts state-supported residential programs found that state-operated programs prohibited employees from smoking in residences and restricted residents who smoked to designated areas. One-third of vendor-operated agencies allowed residents and staff members to smoke in designated areas. (Author/CR)
