Concerns about Child Maltreatment in Hospitalized Children.
Thyen, Ute; And Others
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v21 n2 p187-98 Feb 1997
This study examines factors in clinicians' concerns about treating and reporting child abuse and neglect by analyzing records of 5,446 pediatric hospitalizations. Age of child, income level, and single-parent families were significant factors; however, ethnicity was not. Practitioners noted concern about abuse in 2.5% of the sample, neglect in 3.1%, and reported 2.9% of cases to Child Protective Services. (Author/PB)
