So I have this question about child abuse.There's an 11 month old pt with fracture femur with no expainable history and the doctor suspects child abuse.The question is how to proceed frther.Which would be a better option among confirming the diagnosis with a fundoscopy or calling CPS withouth confirming the diagnosis as the doctor is protected to lawsuits even if he calls CPS without the confirmation of the diagnosis in case of child abuse


I think both need to be done and the order in which they are done is not important. If I had to choose one of the two I would choose CPS.
