Sad for the staff as well. The public almost never hears about the injuries staff sustain from these clients. It is also not discussed that staff cannot defend themselves. Another thing the public needs to know is that adults with developmental disabilities are not exempt from also having such problems as paranoid schizophrenia and some of the clients are murderers and rapists. Direct care staff are told to not discuss how dangerous the workplace is and turn-over is incredible. I know.
