Discussed two and a half years old girl admitted with multiple bruises. Provisional diagnosis – Non Accidental Injury.

Learning point:

  • We are hesitant in mentioning NAI as a cause.

  • Do not beat around the bush.

  • Depersonalise and say it is the Law – child has to be in a place of safety.

  • Do not be afraid to mention Social service / Police if required

There is a good scenario online I have done on how it could be attempted.
