Safety of Children in Hospital



1 January 2006

The Office undertook an investigation into the safety of children following two incidents where infants hospitalised with suspected accidental injury were abused again while in hospital. The purpose of the investigation was to suggest a model for implementation in all District Health Boards to safeguard children who are admitted to hospital with a suspected non-accidental injury.
