Violence and Abuse


I have just completed the chapter on Violence and Abuse from Stanhope: Community and Public Health Nursing, 6th Edition. I am reminded once again of the importance of evidence collection and verbal or behavioral cues. We as Nurses must be constantly alert to the whole environment when we are caring for our clients especially when it comes to children. I will once again admit, working in a fast paced clinic for several years and dealing with 60-80 patients per shift I would tend to over look some of the signs of emotional or physical abuse that were listed in this chapter. This chapter was another excellent reminder.
