This study describes adults with IDD in acute-care hospital settings and identifies differences in their experience compared to patients without IDD. Comparisons between the two samples showed differences in the length of stay, frequency to discharge environments, and number of OT visits per day. This study impacts the field of OT by increasing awareness of the utilization patterns of healthcare services for patients with IDD.
