***THIS IS MY PEER’S SCENARIO I WANT TO RESPOND TO:
“A mother brings her one year old son to the emergency room. She looks very concerned about the pain her child experiences in his leg, after “he fell off the stairs” as she mentioned. The X-ray showed a spiral fracture . Moreover, during physical examination, you notice fading bruises and lacerations on various part of the body surfaces. What should you do as RN taking care of the patient?”
