Bruising protocols in mobile and non-mobile children (April 2023):

There were several drivers for these protocols: National review Star & Arthur , CSPR panel publication on bruising in non -mobile infants following publication of a CSPR Child L

Child L local CSPR featured a small child presenting to hospital with 36 bruises. These were deemed non-accidental. He was known to multi agency services. Core recommendations featured on the need to review multi agency bruising protocols.

The aim of these protocols therefore is to provide frontline health and other professionals with a knowledge base and action strategy for the assessment, management and referral of mobile and non-mobile children and young people under the age 18, who present with bruising or unexplained injury.

BSCP has recently conducted a multi-agency audit upon referrals to the MASH following a period of concerted increase in safeguarding referrals as we came out of the winter 2020/21 lockdown. We wished to ascertain the thresholds of the referrals, the quality of them and key causal factors underlying them . A large sample of cases were audited and findings and areas for further improvement are outlined with the 5 minute briefing document . The Learning and Thematic Review Group will further afford challenge and scrutiny as to the embedding of learning in practice. Click the image below for more information - see more.
