BACKGROUND Older adults represent a growing percentage of the United States (US) population living with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The Emergency Department plays an integral role in the identification and initial evaluation and treatment of patients with HIV. OBJECTIVE We sought to estimate the number of hospitalizations of older adults (age ≥ 50(More)
The extent to which immigrant-specific factors influence the intergenerational transmission of family violence is unknown. The objectives of this paper are to examine the associations between immigrant generational status (IGS), child maltreatment (CM), intimate partner violence (IPV) and acculturation (i.e., the extent to which an individual adopts the(More)
The mandatory reporting of intimate partner violence (IPV) is a controversial issue that is receiving increased attention.

C-reactive protein (CRP) is an inflammatory biomarker of inflammation and may reflect progression of vascular disease. Conflicting evidence suggests CRP may be a prognostic biomarker of ischemic stroke outcome. Most studies that have examined the relationship between CRP and ischemic stroke outcome have used mortality or subsequent vascular event as the(More)
BACKGROUND Limited information exists about medical treatment for victims of intimate partner violence (IPV). OBJECTIVE Our aim was to estimate the number of emergency department (ED) visits and subsequent hospitalizations that were assigned a code specific to IPV and to describe the clinical and sociodemographic features of this population.
