Bruising in non-mobile babies
We have a agreed a multi-agency protocol to provide all frontline staff and managers, including those in children’s social care, health, early years settings and the police with a clear pathway for the assessment, management and referral of non-mobile babies who present with any form of bruising.
The aim of this agreed multi-agency protocol is to:
- Protect babies from harm caused by abuse
- Identify medical causes of bruising
- Reduce the risk of harm to baby and families from child protection investigations when abuse is not present
