Nursing home reform for people with developmental disabilities: The impact of transitions out of nursing homes, (1995), Policy Research Briefs, Vol 7 (1), Heller, T., Factor, A., & Hahn, J.

This brief reports on a two-year longitudinal study examining the adjustment of 268 persons with developmental disabilities ages 31 to 88 to transfers out of nursing homes, as mandated by the OBRA 1987 legislation. The majority of the residents had severe to profound mental retardation, and nearly half (48%) had cerebral palsy. Movers and non-movers were compared to determine: the effect of moving into community based settings on medical status, associated conditions, maladaptive and adaptive functioning and quality of life; how age and the presence of cerebral palsy affect adjustment to the transfers; and to what extent type of placement influences outcomes.
