Pathway for non-mobile baby with bruising or a suspicious mark
This pathway describes the action that a practitioner should take if they become aware of a bruise or suspicious mark on a non-mobile baby. A new animation film, developed by a multi-agency partnership group in Nottinghamshire led by Dr Becky Sands (Designated Doctor for Safeguarding), is now available to help promote the pathway. The film provides advice to practitioners about seeking an explanation from the babies carers and what action to take if no explanation is provided or an unlikely or inadequate explanation is given.
Please take a look at the animation and share it with your colleagues
