Victims of intimate partner violence (IPV) may seek care at emergency departments. This study of self-reporting IPV victims found that while serious injuries were rare, many victims had suffered extreme violence and approximately half had risk factors for re-abuse. Fewer than 20% were referred to victim advocacy resources.
