Abstract

Child abuse is one of the most common major disorders involving children. Nurses who maintain a high index of suspicion; report abuse and neglect to child protection agencies (as required by law); and initiate proper management protocol can protect and preserve the lives and mental health of vulnerable children. By making a commitment to become educated about child abuse, nurses can significantly increase their ability to act as a medical advocate for all children. A nurse's timely and accurate assessment of every pediatric patient is crucial to the early diagnosis and appropriate treatment of these troubled families.
