For a infant or a child which has been abuse by parents and placed in hot water and burn the buttocks,
should you treat first or call the authorities?
if u think its an emergency say severly dehydrated and stuff then treat else first call the cops and get the buggers locked up!!!!!!!
i'd say-anyway-treat the child first,everything else-later.
yes, that´s ethics. Treat your patient first.
ok here's a list of wat to do in order:
1.do complete physical examination

4.report to child protective services
6.consult physchiatrist(evaluate family dynamics)
