Nurses’ role in child abuse reporting

Posted by Sandra On May - 24 - 2010

Children need a voice that will be heard. Listen, observe and be that voice. The easiest way to tell if a child has been harmed — emotionally, sexually, physically, medically or educationally — is to listen. If children tell you they’re being hurt or inappropriately touched or if a parent gives you information that leads you to be concerned, take action.

Don’t attempt to solicit additional detailed information by asking the child questions. Your responsibility is to allow the child’s words to be heard by professionals trained to investigate abuse and neglect.



By the time you finish reading this, 15 children will have been abused; In the next five minutes, 30 more; Within the next hour, 360 more; And by tonight, close to 8,000+ children will have suffered from abuse, 5 of which will die. Child abuse has increased 134% since 1980 and is now considered a worldwide epidemic. The high jump in child abuse deaths and the shocking increase in statistics highlights the frightening lack of public knowledge.

Educate Yourself -- Learn the Facts
It May Just Save a Child's Life!!
