While many states and professional organizations have adopted legislation or created guidelines to facilitate the identification of domestic violence, health-care providers in all settings have yet to make universal screening a part of their routine assessment of women. The purposes of this research were to: a) identify the post battered woman's use of and experiences with health-care providers, and b) examine what the women report health-care providers could have done that would have been helpful. This descriptive research examines the responses of women to six open-ended questions about health care utilization and experience with providers. The purposive sample consisted of 50 women (age=37.28, SD=11.13, range=19-63 years ), who had been out of an intimate abusive relationship an average of 6.65 years (SD=6.41, range=1 to 31 years). During their abusive relationship the women averaged 11 visits per year to providers. After leaving the abusive relationship she averaged nine visits per year. Seventy-four percent of the women were not assessed for abuse by health-care providers. Ways in which health-care providers could have been helpful and implications for practice will be discussed.
