So, I’ve got a questions for all of you. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I have a serious issue with children being hurt, abused, etc. I’ve never been able to deal with that very well, actually. It upsets me to see children, especially very young children, hurt.

I’m sure that most of you feel the same way. How do you deal with this as a doctor? If an infant or newborn dies, or a young child comes in who is obviously being abused, what do you do?? How do you cope with it?

I think you might get more responses if you ask the mods to move this to open discussion where this belongs.

I want to give my two cents on this but this is a heavy topic and can’t be answered in just a few lines.
