Expanding Opportunities for Ethics Committees: Residential Centers for the Mentally Retarded and Developmentally Disabled
Cambridge Quarterly of Healthcare Ethics 3 (2):226 (1994)

In this paper, I describe the development of an ethics committee in a residential center for the mentally retarded and developmentally disabled. I describe how the committee has progressed and some of the ethical issues in this setting
