Recognizing victims of domestic violence
from The Clinical Advisor
Jillian Knowles, MMS, PA-C, writes: I recently had a patient who presented to the emergency department with the chief complaint of a head injury. The patient explained that she had bruising to her face and a bad headache after she was hit in the eye by a dog bone. This was an unusual story, but she went into vivid detail about how the dog bone hit her, what time it happened, and where the event occurred. She said that the injury was three hours old.
